We share our school grounds with the Biesalski School for children with special needs. The Biesalski School, which focuses on supporting physical and motor development, is located on the ground floor, while our premises are mainly on the first floor. Our school building has an elevator. We share the huge school yard (approx. four hectares), the sports hall/auditorium and the teaching kitchen with the Biesalski School.

Opposite our campus is the Coles Sport Center and a swimming pool owned by the Berliner Bäderbetriebe. Both can be reached via a zebra crossing. The Coles Sport Center has a large sports hall with a spectator stand, which we also use for our classes.

Swimming lessons, which take place in the third class according to the plan set by the Berlin Senate, are therefore located perfectly on our doorstep. The children can reach the swimming pool by a 2-minute walk, but are always accompanied by teachers to and from swimming lessons.
