+++ Update - 6.7.2020 +++ As things stand at present, school will start on August 10th for all students in Years 2 to 10 and children in Year 1 who are in the holiday care program, and on August 17th for all Year 1 students, subject to the observance of hygiene rules, but without distance rules (see last update). We are very pleased that our Starting School Celebration for our “Firsties” in two new classes can take place due to a staggered schedule, changes in the program and limits on the number of participants. Now we wish you nice holidays and will get back to you before the beginning of the school year with current information. more

Come in – We’re bilingual!

We are a bilingual educational institution (German/English) based in Berlin-Pankow with Kindergartens in two different locations and a Primary and Secondary School with a focus on mathematics and science.

In our kindergarten, we ensure holistic and age appropriate care which takes the individual capabilities and talents of the children into consideration. Our ambitious educational concept and immersive bilingualism is ideal preparation for the children to continue in our primary school.

Under the roof of a distinguished, listed building, our bilingual primary and secondary school offers optimal learning conditions, where natural curiosity and individual needs can find their place from Grade 1 all the way through to Grade 10. Here, children and young people can learn in a calm environment, test themselves, develop their talents, deepen their interests, learn about cultural diversity and internalise languages.

The time a child spends at kindergarten and school is an intensive and also incredibly important chapter in their lives and we would like to invite you and your child to spend this time with us in an international, caring and open community.
