The DHPS (Deutsche Höhere Privatschule Windhoek) is an integrated German-Namibian school with a dual system, which is supported by the Federal Republic of Germany.

At our school the NSSC (Namibian Senior Secondary Certificate) as well as the Deutsche Internationale Abitur (DIAP) can be acquired. In the German stream we also offer the secondary school qualification.
Besides the NSSC the pupils of the English stream also receive the German language certificate (DSDII) improving their certificate of the Namibian curriculum with special language skills.
Our pupils are taught by qualified teachers from Germany and Namibia in a multi-cultural environment on very spacious school grounds. The lingual diversity found at the student body and the council of the DHPS is almost unique. We are teaching children with mother tongues like German, English, French, Afrikaans, Oshivambo, Nama, Damara and Otjiherero. Therefore our scholars have many opportunities to experience enriching cross-cultural encounters, starting from kindergarten all the way to Grade 12.


Besides a recognized high academic educational standard the DHPS offers a wide variety of extramural activities.

A long tradition as an exceptional school in Namibia (founded in 1909) combines the DHPS with the values of openness to the world as well as tolerance used by us as guidance for our pupils.
