There will not be an open house this year.

Applications are welcome!!

Please note: Since the decision about admission to the 1st grade is not made by the school but by the Berlin Senate, the school, unfortunately, cannot provide any information about the status of the application process. For this, please contact the Senate Administration for Education, Youth and Family Affairs to which you also sent the application (see below).

The documents will not be reconsidered until after the language tests and will not be sent to the Senate until December.

If your child was born between 1 Oktober 2015 and 30 September 2016, s/he will start school in the school year 2022/23.

Please register your school-age child at the assigned primary school between 27 September and 8 October 2021. This is usually the public primary school closest to your residence.

If you wish to enroll your child at WMIS, you must request a change of school from the elementary school in your catchment area.

In addition, you may register your child at our school. The current registration form and an information leaflet are available for download below (from 26 September 2021). You need to present a negative Corona test result when registering.

An exception applies only to the admission of children of highly mobile families coming from abroad.

Monday & Tuesday & Thursday & Friday: 8-12 o'clock

Please note that according to Berlin school law, you are not allowed to apply to numerous schools at the same time.

As a State International School, we accept children who have an age-appropriate command of German or English as a native language; children whose native language is German must also have at least a passive knowledge of English.

We are assessing the language competencies required for admission with language tests.

Depending on which language you have specified as your mother tongue, your mother tongue skills are checked in an English or German test; Children who are registered as bilingual are tested in both languages of instruction. 

Ten places per class are given to children who live permanently in Berlin and ten places to children from highly mobile families (*). Five places are available for pupils with German as their mother tongue - and five places are reserved for pupils with English as their mother tongue.

* Families are considered to be highly mobile if they relocate the center of their life abroad several times at intervals of usually no more than four years for professional reasons of one or both legal guardians, not only for a short time; One-time stays abroad as well as immigration or emigration intentions do not constitute grounds for high mobility.

If the Wangari Maathai International School Berlin is your second or third choice, it is not necessary to submit an application to us. In the event of rejection by the school with the highest priority, the application documents will be forwarded to us.
