As a state international school, we accept children who, according to their age, speak German or English like a mother tongue; Children whose mother tongue 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 allocated to children who live permanently in Berlin and ten places to children from highly mobile families (*). Five places are available for students with German as their mother tongue - and five places are reserved for students 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.
