The DBSAA is a “recognised German school abroad” in the network of German schools abroad, which is supported professionally and financially by the Central Agency for Schools Abroad . The German Embassy School Addis Ababa has set itself the goal of strengthening the German profile of the school.
Young people returning to their home country or that of their parents after a longer stay, young people especially from neighbouring European countries who have an interest in the German language and culture, and young people whose mother tongue is German can, in our opinion, make an important contribution to building a bridge to the local students who have also chosen our school and at the same time they themselves can benefit from this cross-cultural encounter.
The School Managementuses the potential of all its members to address the most important school-related issues. A written schedule of responsibilities regulates the responsibilities within the team . The members of theSMperform their tasks as a team. Local teachers can be included in the SM; their potential as a link to the home country is demonstrably used. Team meetings take place regularly. Minutes document the results. The members take on responsibilities in the school’s committee work. The members of theSM work together with the Principal during evaluations, who retains overall responsibility for the evaluation process.
First, children attend primary school for four years. In the fourth grade, they decide how to continue their education. The system of secondary schools is divided into Hauptschulen, Realschulen, Gymnasien and Gesamtschulen. The Hauptschule ends after the 9th grade with the Hauptschulabschluss, the Realschule after the 10th grade with the Realschulabschluss. Afterwards, the young adults can start vocational training or continue their schooling. The Gymnasium ends after the 12th or 13th grade with the Abitur, which entitles them to study at a university.

The German Embassy School Addis Ababa, DBSAA for short, is located in the district of Aware, in the north-east of the Ethiopian capital. Roman Herzog, the then President of the Federal Republic of Germany, broke ground for the school at its current location on 26.01.1996. The bungalow-like buildings on the hillside serve as classrooms, surrounded by many green spaces; with a German standard sports hall, a football field, as well as a 100-metre track and long jump pit!
