+++ Update - 11.5.2020 +++ We are very happy to welcome back our first and fourth graders on 18.5. as well as the students of classes 2 and 3 on 25.5. as a last boost. In order to enable all children and teenagers to attend school again, we have made some adjustments. All classes 1 to 6 and class 8a will be divided into 2 learning groups ("Apples" and "Bananas") and taught alternately on a weekly basis. Classes 7, 9 and 10 do not have to be divided due to the size of the classes. We have succeeded in maintaining the usual timetable for all school classes. Thanks to a special route plan in the school building, the division of the schoolyard into different areas, staggered times for the beginning and end of the school day, and a new seating plan in classrooms/cafeteria, we adhere to the rules of distance and hygiene, thus enabling all children and young people to return to school and attend classes in all classes. Pupils who belong to a risk group or who live together with people from a risk group are offered further support in learning at home. Until further notice, only lessons will take place. Study groups, early and late supervision, extra-curricular activities or events are still suspended. 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.
