OUR SCHOOL

we are not only learning together but so from each other.’

Our school is a public, state elementary school (without school fees) with a bilingual (German-English) European school branch, ie each grade level (from the first to the sixth) has a regular school class and two bilingual European school classes. Everyday life at our school is very much influenced by the English language, as around half of the students and staff speak English as their mother tongue. Our school therefore also has a very lively cultural background: people from Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Kenya, South Africa, the USA and many other (non-English-speaking) countries experience everyday school life together here.

In addition to the lesson times, our school community experiences numerous great events, which are always held in German and English. You can find more about our projects and events here on our website.

Our most important goal is that your child feels at home at the new school from day one. Many people will do their best for this. This includes not only the pedagogical teachers and educators, but also our administrative management and the secretariat, our caretaker, the employees of our caterer LUNA, but also the librarians of the association and the association itself. Together with the parents of our school we form a caring community.
