I am pleased to welcome you to SIS Swiss International School Berlin. Our school is located in a quiet suburb in the west of Berlin (Spandau) in an idyllic park. The campus comprises the historic Villa Amalienhof, various school buildings, 60.000 square metres of wooded parkland, as well as several outdoor play areas including an area especially designed for our preschool children. Thus our school offers a lot of space for the students of our three educational levels as well as for the implementation of our bilingual concept.
At SIS Berlin, we guide our students on their way from preschool through primary and secondary school to the university-preparatory upper school, which concludes with the Berlin Abitur. Students also have the option of completing the International Baccalaureate (IB) in addition to the Abitur.
Teaching is based on the Berlin state curriculum supplemented by elements taken from international educational practise. The children and students learn the two school languages English and German through immersion: Students dive headfirst into the new language, which surrounds them in class as well as during extra-curricular activities and study time. Native or near native level German- and English-speaking teachers teach and supervise your children so that 50 % of the lessons and the school day take place in each language.
As a day school with additional early morning and afternoon supervision, SIS Berlin reaches out to families from the greater Berlin area (we offer a shuttle bus), as well as to internationally mobile parents seeking to provide their children with a first-rate education in an intercultural setting. If you are considering enrolment at SIS Berlin, please contact our school office for a campus visit and a personal interview. We look forward to meeting you.
