Throughout our Secondary School, teaching is bilingual. Each subject is typically taught in one language – either in English or in German – for the duration of one academic year. All teachers are state approved and have either completed their teacher training in Germany or hold an equivalent qualification.
Certificates: Bilingual Abitur and IB
Secondary school at SIS Berlin guides students in three years to the bilingual Abitur. However, as a recognised IB World School, we also provide the opportunity of simultaneously earning the International Baccalaureate (IB). In years 11 to 13, students follow an integrated programme that prepares them for both sets of exams.
The academically challenging combination of Abitur and IB is only offered at a handful of German schools, making it one of the distinct benefits of attending SIS.
Access to Universities across the World
With the International Baccalaureate (IB), your children earn a globally recognised university entrance qualification that prepares them superbly for university studies, especially in the English-speaking world. The Diploma Programme is characterised by three distinctive features. The subject area Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) gives students the opportunity to engage actively in arts, sports and community service activities. The theory of knowledge course teaches students to develop independent and critical thinking skills. And by crafting the extended essay, they practise the methods of academic work extensively.
Our Secondary School is a state approved private school. Please take note of this important information on the school's status.
