Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Charles-Dickens Elementary School was opened in 1971. In the 1992 school year the Europe School branch was added. The school is named after the famous author and philanthropist Charles John Huffam Dickens (1821 – 1870). Charles-Dickens-Grundschule has both an English-German Europe Branch and a regular German Branch. The school is located between the Olympic Stadium and Berlins’ Grunewald forest, with very convenient connections to the public transportation system. A third building was added to the spacious school grounds in 2007.

The aim of our Europe School is to teach German and English speaking children together at the same time. Ideally classes are made up of 50 percent German and 50 percent English mother tongue children.

Teaching approach of the school

In the Europe branch the children develop intensive bi-cultural and multi-cultural contacts. CDS endeavours to strengthen both the self-confidence of the children as well as their tolerance, their understanding and their acceptance of other cultures.
