As a state international school, we accept children who are native German or English speakers at an age-appropriate level; children who speak German as their mother tongue must also have at least a passive
knowledge of English.
We use language tests to check the language skills required for admission. The examination of the mother tongue knowledge takes place in either English or in German, depending on which language is indicated as the native language; children who are registered as bilingual are tested in both teaching languages.
Ten spots per class are allocated to children who live permanently in Berlin and ten to children from highly mobile families. Five spots are reserved for students with German as their mother tongue and five for students with English as their mother tongue.
A highly mobile family is one that repeatedly (not just temporarily) relocates its main residence for professional reasons to a foreign country at intervals of four years or less. One-off stays abroad and intentions to immigrate or emigrate do not justify a highly mobile classification.
If your child was born between 1 October 2013 and 30 September 2014, he or she will start school in the school year 2020/21.
Please register your school-age child at the assigned primary school between 19 September and 2 October, 2019. This is usually the public primary school closest to your residence.
If your first choice school is the Wangari Maathai International School, you must also register your child at our school during the same period. Below you will find the registration form and the respective information sheet.
Please note that according to Berlin school law, you are not allowed to apply to numerous schools at the same time.
If the Wangari Maathai International School Berlin is your second or third choice, it is not necessary to submit an application to us. In the event of rejection by the school with the highest priority, the application documents will be forwarded to us.
