Welcome

Welcome

At the Youth German School - YGS, we believe that every child is a unique capable individual, and has the potential to bring something special to this world.

We prepare children to become future leaders, through providing them a nurturing and creative learning environment, in addition to a tailored bilingual & multicultural academic program to suit individual needs.

At YGS, we aim to assist your children in achieving their full potential, discovering their creative abilities, gaining the confidence needed to excel in school and life, while developing their love for learning.

Our professional international team strives to ensure that all students are always motivated and excited to come to school, learn, engage and build special charismatic characters.

At YGS, education is different. We have created world-class models that meet the increasing education demands of the future; children are introduced to several languages and cultures in order to enhance their cultural awareness, prepare them to face the challenges of a multicultural global community, and for them to become global citizens who respect, accept and embrace the differences between human beings based on their understanding of cultural diversity.

Who we are?
Mission & Vision

How does YGS differ from other educational offers in Lebanon?

Within our pleasant and welcoming environment, every child is treated as a unique individual. Our goal at YGS is to create an exceptional educational experience, while providing a fun atmosphere for learning.

  • Our school is one big family. Every team member knows every student in the school, and students are encouraged to build friendships with each other, empowering socializing in the age of social media.
  • YGS welcomes children from different nationalities, religions and cultures, helping build a civilized society, while promoting cultural diversity.
  • Our classes are spacious while the number of students in each class is small. Reducing the number of students in each class is an imitative that results in better learning conditions, and improve the relationship between students and teachers.
