Bilingual Stream

-state-recognised bilingual primary school-

Our Primary School is a five minute walk from Berlin’s historic Olympic stadium in the suburbs of Charlottenburg. The single story building, which is home to K3 and Grades 1 to 5, has open, airy and bright learning spaces, as well as a library, music room and two gymnasiums. There is a large and well-equipped playground. Our Grade 6 students are located at the Secondary site.

From Monday to Thursday the school offers before school supervision from 8:00, Friday's school day begins at 8:15. Lessons begin at 8:30 and end at 15:20. The school day ends at 16:00. Students who wish to avail of the After School Care or Clubs also have the opportunity to stay until 17:00. 

At our Primary School (Grades 1-6), we are authorised to offer two separate streams - monolingual and bilingual. 

Bilingual School (staatl. genehmigte bilinguale Grundschule): a bilingual English/German stream for students with German nationality and for students who will be in Berlin long term. This stream is based on a blend of the local Berlin curriculum framework (Berliner Rahmenlehrplan) merged with the IB Primary Years Programme (IBPYP).  The school can only accept students in the bilingual programme if they are fluent in German. 

We have been developing our curriculum throughout the school in order to better prepare our students for the challenges facing global citizens.

By linking subjects in context and providing a programme of structured inquiry, we provide students with the opportunity for critical thinking. Lessons are characterised by differentiated activities tailored to meet the individual needs of the children. Regular reporting and close contact with parents ensure that channels of communication on children’s progress are kept open.

Both streams are taught together as one class with the exception of Maths, PE and German where the students are taught in their respective stream.
