Come in – We’re bilingual!

We are a bilingual educational institution (German/English) with a kindergarten at two different locations and a primary and secondary school with a MINT or better known as STEM focus (Mathematics, Informatics, Natural Sciences, Technology) in Berlin-Pankow.

In our kindergarten we offer holistic and age-appropriate care, taking into account the individual inclinations and talents of the children. Through a demanding pedagogical concept, immersive bilingualism and personal attention, we ensure optimal early childhood education.

Under the roof of a venerable and listed house – the former Pankow Post Office – and in our adjacent buildings, weas well as in our modern adjacent premises, we offer ideal learning conditions in our bilingual school from Year 1 to Year 10, where natural curiosity and individual needs find their place. Here, children and young people can learn in peace, try things out, develop talents, deepen interests, get to know cultural diversity and internalise languages. From the school year 2024/25, we are planning to start the gymnasiale Oberstufe (upper secondary level) with Year 11. In future, all students shall have the opportunity to study bilingually for 13 school years and take their Abitur at our school! We would like to point out that the recognition of our upper secondary school is currently in the approval process.

The kindergarten and school years are intensive and very special periods in the life of a young person and we would like to invite you and your child to spend this time with us in an international community.
