Berlin International School
Berlin International School (B.I.S.) at Campus Dahlem is part of the international and bilingual branch (E/G) of Stiftung Private Kant-Schulen gGmbH. We offer both nationally and internationally recognized educational opportunities from first grade through the end of secondary school to children and young adults whose families are internationally mobile. A second bilingual branch is located at Campus Steglitz and is know as Internationale Schule Berlin (ISB). Collectively, Campus Dahlem and Campus Steglitz are one school called Berlin International School / Internationale Schule Berlin based on two locations. Transfers from one location to another are possible.
In our vibrant international community we facilitate a curriculum that is rigorous and diverse: alignment with the Berlin Rahmenlehrplan, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), the IGCSE, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) provides challenge and inspiration for our students while instilling a love of learning that transcends school. Ultimately, we ensure that learners have the knowledge, skills, and values to cope with the future world.
As part of our community of learners, children benefit from a nurturing environment, gaining a sense of confidence by working with an experienced and skilled staff of international professionals. Not only does this culminate in excellent academic results and placement in some of the world’s top universities, it also equates beneficial mentoring relationships for children of all ages as adults at B.I.S. model a sense of collegiality, balance, humor, and intellectual curiosity. We aspire to be a happy, exciting place where children are motivated to become successful academically, personally, and socially.
At B.I.S., education is also a partnership. Parents and the school are a collaborative team, decision making is learning-driven, and all stakeholders are valued and respected. Understanding the needs of families looking to be grounded in the host culture while keeping a global outlook, we have the ability to differentiate to a range of needs while maintaining an inclusive environment.
