About us

The 2nd International School Berlin is a State International School with bilingual German and English lessons for children from highly mobile families and children who live permanently in Berlin.  We accept children who speak German or English like a mother tongue.


The school began its work in the 2017/18 school year with grade 1 and in 2018/19 it will consist of four classes in which students from grades 1 and 2 will be taught in mixed classes according to the system of the Flexible School Entrance Phase. We are an all-day school.


The gradual move out of the classes of our partner school, the Nelson Mandela School, means that the school building at Babelsberger Strasse 24 is expected to remain our school location for the next few years.


The school is currently an elementary school which will comprise grades 1 to 6 in the medium term. In the long term, it is also planned to offer a lower secondary level with grades 7 to 10 in the form of an integrated secondary school. A higher education entrance qualification can then be acquired at a separate upper secondary level with grades 11 to 13 or in cooperation with another State International School.
