Our Team, Our Opening Hours and How to Reach Us

Greeting from the Principal

Dear parents and students

Welcome to the beautiful community of SIS Berlin.

At SIS Berlin we care about the child as a whole and give equal importance to all facets of development: academic, social and emotional. We value developing a love of learning and the ability to collaborate effectively with others.

Whilst SIS Berlin is internationally orientated, we believe in embracing our local roots as well. We bring international and local students together to foster mutual understanding and strong language skills, in both English and German.

We strive to help our students reach their highest potential so that they can make a positive contribution to society and the world in which they work and live. We aim to grow as a community. To that end, we invite active parent engagement, partnership, and support.

If you would like to learn more about SIS Berlin, please contact us to arrange a visit to our campus. I am confident that SIS Berlin will surprise and impress you.

 

Yours,
Andrea Maes-Prior
