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 offer holistic and age appropriate care which takes the individual capabilities and talents of the children into consideration. Through an ambitious pedagogical concept, immersive bilingualism and personal attention, we ensure optimal early childhood education.

Under the roof of a distinguished, listed building, our bilingual primary and secondary school offers ideal 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. For a bilingual school education up to the Abitur, we will introduce the gymnasiale Oberstufe (upper secondary school) in the school year 2024/25.

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.
