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 natural sciences.

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, as well as in our modern adjacent ‘Second House’, we offer ideal learning conditions in our bilingual primary and secondary school, where natural curiosity and individual needs can find their place from Year 1 all the way through to Year 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. As of school year 2024/25, we will start with Year 11 in our secondary school. In principle, all students will be able to study bilingually for 13 school years and complete their Abitur (high school diploma) at our school.

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.


+++ Update as of 09.05.2022 +++ In the period from 09.05. to at least 06.06.22 all students and staff will now test themselves twice a week on Monday and Thursday, or daily if there are several positive cases in a class. The 3G rule continues to apply for parents and visitors from outside the school. more
