Welcome to the German School Baie-D'Urfé

Our classes are for everyone aged 3 to 93. We can accommodate students without any knowledge of German, as well as native speakers.

Our secondary 4 and 5 courses are accredited by the Ministry of Education, so that students can receive 4 credits towards their high school leaving diploma.

We also offer exams from Germany called the DSD1 and DSD2. In preparation for these difficult exams the students not only elevate their knowledge of German to a superior level, but also may then study at any German university.

Our classes are small for individual attention and are taught in German by native German teachers. Students are grouped according to age and knowledge of German.

Courses take place at the Alexander von Humboldt School, 216, rue Victoria, Baie d'Urfé, Québec

The German-Canadian Friendship Award attributed to Roswitha Haage On May 11th 2021, Mrs. Roswitha Haage of Brossard, was distinguished and honoured with the German-Canadian Friendship Award.

The Consul General of Germany in Montreal, Mrs. Dr. Misera-Lang, presented the award to Mrs. Roswitha Haage in person at the consulate for her long-standing work and commitment both as principal of the South Shore German Language School and her role as president of the four German schools of Quebec. Germany’s Ambassador, Mrs. Sparwasser - virtually from Ottawa – also paid tribute to all Mrs. Haage has accomplished to promote the German language and culture in Quebec.

Family and friends of Mrs. Haage, as well as members of the board of directors of the German schools likewise had the opportunity to participate virtually in this special event and offer congratulations on this well deserved distinction.
