25 Years of Chartering


We were very excited to organize and participate in the first Saint Paul Charter School Fair. The event took place at St. Paul College and gave families and students a chance to interact with school administrators & teachers, ask questions and learn more about the great opportunities and innovative formats charter school education has to offer.

We met many awesome families and hope we will be able to welcome some of them to our school soon!

Kreativwettbewerb 2015


The Creativity Competition "Kreativwettbewerb" of the ZfA is a US-wide competition in creative writing offered through the German Central Agency for Schools Abroad. Some of our 7th graders participated this year. Each student responded to the German prompts: "What is important in your life?" and "My favourite saying". Students were able to create a podcast or video, write poems, short stories, a personal perspective, or something similar. All the entries were awesome! They were sent to the German Agency and evaluated. We just received a package from ZfA sharing with us that 10 TCGIS students were being honored as winning entries. They all received an official certification from the German Government, a hard copy of their published work with all the winners, and gift cards to Barnes & Noble. Congratulations to our creative 7th graders!



Amity Intern Program

Welcome New Interns, Goodbye old interns

We have 23 Interns at TCGIS for the 2015-2016 school year adding valuable assistance in classrooms, sharing their culture and German language skills with our students. The end of the semester was a sad and happy moment, when we had to say goodbye to 5 awesome interns but welcomed 7 new interns. As you see them in the hallways and working with your children, please welcome them to TCGIS and our community.

Thank you for all your hard work!
