Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Berlin Bilingual School is an English-German school for families from around the globe who have settled in the German capital. The school's students share an upbringing that is bilingual, as well as a school experience that fully supports their languages, cultures of origin and life in a diverse city. The parents find a home-away-from-home in this school community where their children learn and grow, and where they themselves make friends and volunteer their talents in support of their children’s education. The staff engages with curricula and best practices from many countries to create a unique and inspiring program at all levels.
Berlin Bilingual School offers a challenging academic program which leads to German and international qualifications. At the same time, it encourages children become independent, pursue their interests, and develop close relationships with each other and the staff.

Teaching approach of the school

BBS values students as individuals and integral members of a community. They are taught to be active and reflective learners, focusing not only on what to learn, but also how to learn.

The teachers also love learning. They encourage and help students to make continual progress rather than focus only on what it takes to be ‘successful’. Of course, BBS measures progress by standards, but the students take pride in their personal development no matter what their level of achievement. While standards are set high for all students, BBS fully respects and embrace individual needs.

Learning is at the heart of the school, be it in the classroom, the science laboratory or the music room, at the printing press, on the school yard or in the cafeteria. BBS aims for learning to be life-long and to create an environment that prepares students for an ever-changing world.
