|Qualities and characteristics best defining the school||
The International Montessori School Berlin offers pupils in grades 1-6 the best conditions for starting school life. Around 120 children learn according to the principles of the reform pedagogue Maria Montessori. They learn German and English through language immersion.
|Teaching approach of the school||
IMS strengthens and supports the children’s natural curiosity. The enjoyment of freely chosen learning content and the materials that are accessible at all times are the ideal motivation to learn persistently and attentively. In classes that span different years, the children work on different topics and tasks, alone or in groups, depending on their interests and learning level. In Montessori education, this is called “free work”.
