Berlin Bilingual School: what do users think?


Sarah Blakeslee: We joined Berlin Bilingual school because it was close by and bilingual. As a German-American family, that was our highest priority. We liked that the school was started by parents and we found the educational concept to fit well with our own philosophy: education centered on individual learning, mixed grades in 1-4, equal learning in German and English with teachers working as a team, truly bilingual staff and educators (Erzieher) integrated in the classroom. Also the full-day school with lots of activity opportunities was important to us. What we hadn't expected was the vibrant community of like-minded families that are part of the school community. Parents are an integral part of activities and events and welcomed us right in. This was a unexpected surprise and a benefit of the school we now couldn't imagine being without. With one child having moved on to BBS secondary and a second heading through primary, we see the advantages of continuity in being part of this school. BBS kids are a uniquely self-aware, globally-oriented, and inclusive bunch. We love being part of this school and seeing our kids growing into fully formed, creative and empathic humans guided by BBS teachers and staff.
Response: Thank you for your kind words!

Sash Samson: This place is dangerous. There are lovely teachers here; I have to say. Unfortunately, they are shadowed by an insane staff (and their principle) that allows a male teacher to bully his first graders (also physically shaking a first or second grader, according to multiple witnesses) A staff that falsely reports children/parents to the Berlin senate(!) and almost tore away a child from his foreign single mom just a little while ago (while they were already relocated to a different continent - a true horror story). The principal is now on her way out, but it doesn't promise that abuse will stop at this school. Like many other educational facilities in Germany, they abuse the 'integration' status funds given by the berlin state and try to force 'easy target' parents to assign their children to ones that require special needs (to get the integration funds) Unfortunately, adults bullying children in Berlin (maybe in Germany throughout) is prevalent and seems part of the culture. So whatever horrible things this school has allowed to pass, it is STILL BETTER than most schools in Berlin.
Response: To whom it may concern: I would like you to take your comment down. It seems that you have had several bad experiences in Germany. However, what is being stated about our school is not true. We will report this comment to google administration as we see this as defamation of our institution without any grounds.

Susanne Brown: This is an amazing school!! Both our kids loved the primary school (and are now very happy at the BBS Secondary school!). They had wonderful teachers who really inspired them to enjoy learning. It was a very nurturing and safe environment where they really thrived. We as parents loved the friendly atmosphere and the community where we all felt welcome straight away.
Response: Thank you very much!

Buts Parisi: Our son went to BBS and our daughter still does. We always felt that our children were safe and in the right place. Even in the early years of the school (around 10 years ago?) when things were not always easy, the teachers, educators and management of the school always exuded integrity, calm and focus: That it's about the children, about a good education and about allowing self-confident children to grow into self-confident adults. This spirit has always had an influence on the entire community: There is a very positive family feeling there. Our boy was very happy, our girl still is.
Response: Thank you very much!

Tami Lee: A wonderful place for multilingual/international children to learn, grow and blossom. We lived in many places around the world and came to BBS with a child in grade 2 and in grade 4. Our children seamless made the transition into the school and always felt supported by the BBS teaching and Erzieher/in team.
Response: Thank you very much!

Knut Eckstein: My daughter was extremely happy at the secondary school. The school was her choice, she made a lot of friends, had great relationship with her teachers and received a top education in English and German.
Response: Thank you very much!

Till R: Not recommended, after 2 kids and 4 year of the school. Discrimination and uneven pedagogical principals and communication. Price vs what you get out of it, also not worth it. English-German community- great, when you have a kid who fits in. If you don't, you're screwed, despite your investment. That's been our honest experience. I'm sure it's different for others. I'm from the Black Forest and have lived in Berlin since 2002 with my wife, from Iowa
Response: We are very sorry to see your bad rating.

camilla beglan: This is a really great school. Bi-lingual right up to 13th grade. The secondary students get to do the German and the British curriculum so have two sets of qualifications. The ethos of the school is one of inclusion and cultivation of critical thinking. The teachers are international as are the children and they share all those different perspectives in the service of joint learning. Wonderful school
Response: Thank you.

Frida: Absolutely amazing school! Great teachers and international community. Our daughter spent 6 years in this school and we can truly recommend it.
Response: Thank you very much!

Sarah Williams: Wonderful Grundschule in the center of Berlin.Great teachers and Erzieher with lots of empathy and laughters. Our daughter loved it and made a lot of friends and memories.
Response: Thank you very much!

Berlin Cosmopolitan School: what do users think?


Dmitry K: We r family of 5 just moved to Berlin few weeks ago. Our main concern was to find the right school for our 10 and 12 years old kids. They both are fluent in English and French, but know zero German. After some research we end up at Berlin Cosmopolitan School, where our needs were fully understood. To make the long story short, both kids LOVE!! the school. Students are very friendly to newcomers. Administration is helpful and teachers are doing their job great. Another amazing thing is that the school has kinder garden, so after school babies can see and communicate with older kids which is extremely nice.

Mark Smith: As father of 3 children who have all attended this school for 3 or more years I think I have a rounded view of its strengths and weaknesses. First, the strengths. Well, the location is good. Frankly it's so close to where we live that enrolling our children was a no-brainer, this despite the school having no playing field or sports facilities of its own to speak of. The first year our two sons spent at the school were ok. Our younger daughter studied at the BCS kindergarten and naturally moved to the main school when she finished there. The school professes to specialise in music and science. I have to say, in 4 years we saw no evidence at all of this. Music lessons, beyond the basic school provision, are offered only for extra cost after school hours. For science, we saw absolutely no evidence of any coverage at all in either the primary or secondary schools. Despite our strong interest in our children learning German, they made absolutely no progress at BCS. When our eldest son joined the secondary school he was told that by 8th grade he would need to speak fluent German. Bearing in mind the complete lack of German tuition in the primary school I don't know how they expected that to happen. When we asked the primary school principal about this recently he justified the lack of German language tuition by saying that it "is an English language school". The teachers in BCS have an email culture. Any issues the teachers have with a student requiring extra help are sent to the principal who then writes to the parents. In 4 tortuous years we received probably two dozen letters detailing issues which, our experience shows, would be handled easily in class in other schools. We eventually put this down to the inexperience of the teachers but upon reflection seems to reflect the culture of the school, where any problems are simply pushed back onto the parents without any support or effort on the schools part. Disappointing. This is a school where approximately half the staff are so called "afternoon teachers". These are basically unqualified child minders with a simple social work certificate. One of these, still in post, is actually also a current nightclub bouncer whom we had the misfortune to witness brawling on the embankment near the East Side Gallery while attempting to keep people off a party boat. Children are left in the care of these afternoon teachers for up to 3 hours a day. Despite one or two outstanding teachers the overall level of tuition is poor. The primary school have recently lost one of these notable staff members, which in a school with recruitment problems already is a damaging blow. Whatever our experiences of the primary school, nothing prepared us for the BCS secondary school. Here the weaknesses of the primary school are multiplied due to poor management. Despite us having numerous meetings with the principal of the secondary school where we raised our concerns with the tuition, nothing ever changed and, as the principal took no notes at any meeting he often forgot, or worse even denied things he'd promised. Our worst experience at this school was when one of the teachers had a meltdown in front of a horrified class of 11 year olds and assaulted my son, pulling his hair and pinching the back of his neck. Despite this being witnessed by a class full of kids and the school issuing a generalized apology about the behaviour of the teacher they tried to cover up the assault and repeatedly tried to stifle mention of it. In the 4 years our 3 children were at the school, despite numerous letters and many meetings with teachers, the owner of the school spoke to us precisely twice, both times in passing as we entered or left the school. She was totally disengaged. Within 6 months of our children joining the school we felt it was a poor choice. After 4 years I can say it was a terrible one. Avoid if you have a choice.

Christoph Westerbarkey: Our son has recently enrolled in the BCS Berlin and we now really feel that we have finally arrived and are at home………after a long odyssey through both the private and public school curriculum’s available to our son….!! We are very impressed both with the extremely open and pleasant communication which we have with the school, and the richly diverse extramural activities offered, providing a stimulating and creative environment for the children!! Modern teaching methods and learning equipment go hand in hand with the functionally refined canteen making all in all an undeniably great school!!!

Gospel Mpieri: This school is awesome. I feel at home, and wake up happy because of my classes every morning. The food is delicious, the teachers are really friendly and open to questions, and my life is the best. Go to our school, and don't listen to Mr.smith over there

Jessica Torres Bueno: We arrived in Berlin almost 1 month ago and not one international or Europa school had a place for my 6 year old. As a last resort we tried the public system and to our surprise (yes, I know by law they must) there were also NO places, because he didn't speak German. Randi, was so helpful and kept on trying to find a place for him. Yesterday we got the good news that he can start after the Easter holidays. We are relieved that it is sorted now and he can start to make friends and make Berlin his home! Thank you for being so kind, caring and helpful at this very difficult time of moving to a new country with a new language. It is very much appreciated!

Chimezie Ogu: I worked in Berlin as diplomat from 2014 -2017 . During this period, my children attended Berlin Cosmopolitan School. The enrollment of my children brought about an increased growth in exposing their talents as well as shaped their lives for the future. BSC gave my children the needed space to express themselves confidently and expose them to modern techniques in learning. The School motto of respect, decency and excellence is imbibed as a culture among the pupils and students. With the training in BSC, Students are prepared to conquer their world environment and hold their space in any future endeavors. I thank the management and staff of the BSC for the great work on my children while in Berlin. Mr. Chimezie Ogu is a foreign Service Officer with Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Abuja

Rude Syndrom: A place for spoiled kids and underpaid teachers… and a lot of incompetence.

Hayssam Chalaby: It is the best of the best great atmosphere, the most suitable place for your kids also no words can describeMrs. Randi Impson she is more than amazing full of positive energy with her words, her kindness and her smile all the time . What an amazing woman...

Motti Zohar: Great school and Kita with very professional staff and management. Nice atmosphere and friendly environment for children. I definitely recommend!

Hillel Levi-Faur: I learned in this school for an entire 2 years and the only thing I have to say about it is so bad that Google would probably censor it. I hate this school and think it should be shut down (and not only because of the cafeterias hygienic situation)

Platanus school: what do users think?


Natascia Silvestri Jones: We had our child at Berlin Metropolitan School and we weren't happy. We were able to move him at the Platanus. Today are 2 months we joined this school. We are amazed and so happy we made the decision!!! This school has an amazing teachers team, high quality teaching, good discipline and ... very simple: as parents we feel everybody cares about education! This is not a business, like lots of private schools are. I would suggest this school to everybody that is moving into Berlin. Real bilingual school :-)

Sophie The gamer: school is all around good the education is good but the way the teachers handle misbehaving i find a little harsh. They make older students come in earlier to fill out forms on what they did wrong even if the student finds they did nothing wrong.Yelling is also used a lot. My child was even threatened to not be allowed to take part in learning instead wait outside for the whole class until the parents would email the teacher asking if their child would be able to participate in learning. Isn’t there another way to handle punishment? Kids have the right to education here. Although compared to other schools in berlin it’s very bilingual with many english speaking teachers and students. Nevertheless the education.

Scientific consulting: The place where my children love to be..... KINDERGARTEN Our eldest started attending the Platanus Kindergarten in the Vorschul year. She had been at a previous day care in Wedding. Honestly, this change was a sigh of relief. The children are actually encouraged to use their minds and be creative. They attend regular excursions, which was something so rare in the old Kita. They learn so many interesting things, especially nature is a big theme. My youngest attends the Kindergarten now and loves going there. SCHOOL Our daughter has been blessed with the best teacher you could have imagined these last three years. They are very encouraging at the school and it does feel like a 'big family'. We could not comprehend sending our daughter to a school with more than 600 students, especially with mixed grades in one classroom. I'm old fashioned and am a fan of the individual class concept. There are a maximum of 24 children per class. Team teaching is a big BONUS here. There are great AGs/clubs provided by the school. The English staff are young and don't stay for more than a few years. This isn't surprising as they gather experience and move onwards to the next place. I do not agree with the negative reviews here: no school is perfect. In contrast, we have only experienced a very welcome, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere.

Alycia Jones: We had an absolutely horrific experience with Platanus. Our child was a student there for two years. At first we assumed that a lot of the differences were cultural, considering that we were coming with a North American perspective. Teachers and staff yell (scream) at the children. It is ran in a very militaristic manner. When we first signed up for the school, they assured us that they had just hired a 'German as a second language' tutor since it is a bi-lingual school. They did not hire one until the second year of our child's time there. When we enquired about it, the principal responded "by law we are not required to have one". And that's fine, but a pretty low response if you told us there would be one a year prior. To make things worse, we had two incidents with two(!) different teachers at the school PHYSICALLY HURTING our child. The first teacher grabbed our child's arm so hard he left bruises. At first, the school showed concern, but there was no punishment from the administration for the teacher's actions. A few months later, another teacher pushed our child against a pillar in front of the whole class. We were fed up and (rightfully) outraged. We contacted the administration and they ignored our complaints. We didn't even get a response! Our child's psychologist took us to the equivalent of 'Children's Services for Schools' in Berlin, but unfortunately since it is a private school their hands were tied and were unable to do anything about it. They advised us to go to the police or hire an attorney. Since we were planning on leaving Germany after that school year, they suggested talking to a doctor. When we did, the doctor saw how terrified our child was and wrote a note to excuse them from the rest of the year. It was an absolute nightmare. I am sure Platanus is well aware of their power in being a private school. Many other parents had similar stories as well and when we left this past school year so were many other families. I tell you this to warn you and protect your children. There are many other schools available in Berlin, please, avoid Platanus at all costs.
Response: The teachers and educators at the Platanus Schule Berlin take great joy and commitment to ensure the safety and well-being of all the children entrusted to them every day and see this as their most important task in addition to teaching content. We are proud of the Platanus Kindergarten and the Platanus School Berlin and are pleased that our work is repeatedly noticed through positive feedback and recommendations from our parents. In everyday school life, our team documents complaints and incidents of this type very precisely. The survey of the teachers involved and other participants, which we immediately initiated, as well as the inspection of all documents and correspondence on the allegations mentioned, paints a different picture. We work closely with you, our child protection officer and an external school psychological counseling and support center (SIBUZ) have worked together to provide you and your child with all the support you need. Of course, in our team as well as from our children and parents, we gratefully accept constructive and factual criticism. However, we prefer an open and fair exchange with the opportunity to present yourself in a personal conversation. The managers dr Karen Krueger and Kristin Wendorf

Brother John Meyanwi: It is a good school but the bilingualism is questionable. More English than German.

לימור זיו: This place is so bad you can’t actually call it a school

Free Bitcoin: Pretty good, but treid stuffing feminist bs down our throats

Daniel Rüggeberg: Best school in the world! Absolute 5 stars. Best school in the world! Absolute 5 stars.

Evgenia Weber: Our children have been attending this school for several years and we are very surprised at what can be read in some of the reviews here. We have only had good experiences with the Platanus School, our children love going there. It's always a great sign when children don't want to go home when they're picked up in the afternoon. For us, this is clear proof of how comfortable they feel there. We are absolutely amazed by the quality of the teaching and how quickly the children learned English, even though we are a German family. We appreciate the Platanus College and have only had very committed teachers and educators up to now. We have always experienced the interaction in this school as polite and respectful. We like that the school is performance-oriented and that our children can still learn without being overwhelmed. It was the best decision to send her to this school and we will definitely stay until 10th grade because it is a great school community.

Klaus Kalus: Former post office. The Berlin-Pankow main post office, the former pneumatic tube post office and the telephone exchange 48 were housed here. In 2016, the last post office counter closed.

BBIS Berlin Brandenburg International School: what do users think?


KKK KKK: This school is absolutely amazing. If your kids happen to have autism, or any handicaps in general, they will fit right in! The school is filled with the likes of these children, in addition to that, the teachers do an incredible job at comforting these kids as they happen to have very similar conditions. Another thing that is great about this school is Boarding, the mentors happen to also be mentally ill, making it very easy for unwanted handicapped children to be sent there. Overall. Its a great school!

Ezzimara Buse: Dear BBIS, The school looks great! But I was wondering if international students with no parents in the country could go there. I am half German, so I have family and relatives in Germany, but none directly in Berlin. My family owns some apartments in Berlin, and as a 16 year old, I would legally be allowed to live there alone. However some schools have rules against students living by themselves or without direct family, I was wondering if this was the case here as well. I am currently in a boarding school in France, but am planning on making some changes in the next year of my life. I am confident that I could take care of myself and am dependent enough to live on my own throughout the IB DP program. Would you mind letting me know what your rules and regulations are on this? Thankyou, and have a wonderful day. - Asmara Buse
Response: Dear Asmara Buse, Thank you for your kind message. We would be delighted to answer your questions about enrolling at BBIS as we do offer boarding as an option as well. Could I please ask you to kindly send us an e-mail to admissions@bbis.de. Thank you. With kindest regards, BBIS

Nathan 0: I love Berlin Brandenburg Islamic School. I sent my daughter to it and in a short time she memorized the whole quran from heart mashallah. Her teacher (picture below) deserves great appreciation. The way that he assists kids in memorizing long text in such a short time is astonishing to me. Thank you teacher if you're watching this! Would highly recommend BBIS.

Berlin International School: what do users think?


Sonya Lukin: Great facilities and teachers. But there is some bullying that goes on in this school that’s isn’t very nice. Food is not the best but not the worst for school food. Technology and Wi-Fi is very good at this school and all in all it’s a great school.

Carter: I went to this terrible school from 4th - 6th grade, and it was without a doubt the worst school I have ever attended. Most of the teachers are great, and the curriculum is advanced and informative. I do not know if Mr. Campbell still teaches there, but he is truly amazing. However, the reason it is the worst place I have ever gone is there was an incredibly terrible bullying problem. Anyone that wasn't good friends with people at the top of the social hierarchy was constantly and relentlessly bullied, physically and mentality. It was the entire culture of the school. This issue was especially bad considering that there were multiple mentaly and/or physically disabled people in my grade, who were popular targets of heavy abuse. Furthermore, the problem was made worse by most of the teachers turning a blind eye to the blatant bullying. For example, often people would refer to their favorite targets during class with rude and insulting names. For example "(Insert rude name), pass me that pencil". The teachers pretended not to hear anything, and just ignored the blatant mental abuse of less popular students. The most extreme case of this that I saw happened with me being tripped and pushed over and then kicked in the back and the head multiple times. All this was literally right in front of the pe teacher. He did not acknowledge the attack, and when I confronted him, he said that surely there were two sides to the story, and that he had not even seen anything (which is a blatant lie). Even some of the other kids, including a few of the bullies spoke out in my favor, and told the attacker that he should not have done that. I fortunately managed to leave BIS in 7th grade, and switch to JFKS, where I had an amazing experience. At JFK, people were actually kind, friendly, and supportive. Only after I got out of BIS did I realize exactly how bad it had been. It has been 5 years since I left BIS, and I do not know if the situation is still as bad, but my experience there left me mentaly traumatized for years. I suspect that It had not changed. Again, other than the terrible bullying that ruined 3 years of my life, the school is decent. The teachers are helpful and informative (except for ignoring blatant bullying), and the curriculum is advanced. Again, I do not know if Mr. Campbell still teaches there, but he is truly amazing. 1/10 would not recommend. Edit: Totally forgot to mention that the provided lunches and food are absolutely terrible, and even the school and teachers agree. Unfortunately, the food catering service is owned by some of the management, and is permanent. Worth going to another school just because of the food.

Antika Rani Roy: This school is the best and it's great cause I went there and some of the kids were nice but some of them were "NOT" but I am ok with it. + the Teachers when a student needs help at the (playground) they wouldn't answer and keep talking to another teacher which is really annoying for me (and The school is great I miss this school but I am moving to texas very soon ;( 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙

Stella Von Bonsdorff: The teachers don‘t really know what they are teaching, the food is poor, the break area(playground) is extremely small. The school wastes money on a new juice machine that really wasn’t needed. If you really want to enjoy going to school and have a good work environment look elsewhere.

Catherine Branigan: Questionable competence concerning TOK, economics and math teachers. Questionable care about students, given the fact the german class teacher was absent half the time and the principal and director were resisting in catching up those missed classes next term. Questionable honesty from the principal that promised compensating these after they were not (and claims you're calling him a liar when you said he promised). Qustionable respect towards students, seen in how you get forced to pull trash from a dirty trash can just because you got confused between the cans. And get threatened with a "talk with parents" and a detention when you "dare" say no. Questionable attitude to students when you dare laugh in the liabrary, once. Same when you do a physics simulation online and it's being branded gaming. Questionable fund raising events, given the school fee is well over € 10000 a year. Subpar teaching quality, when compared to other European or US high schools. Extremely poor quality/price ratio Drug users among students. Hence the rating, of course.

Trung Nguyen: My children studying here, one of them achieved an IB degree and another in secondary. The study environment is great, teachers always willing to help.

Ioannis Aslanidis: Good teachers, good study plan.

Craft JJ: I was the student here... This school is awesome!! I want to go there again.: )

hasan zungo: One of the best schools in Berlin. Affordable and safe environment for your kids

devki subhash: Nice school. My daughter improves a lot..

John F. Kennedy School: what do users think?


Enxryu: Was not told about failing grades, a lot of negativity and high set standards. This was just my experience it may well be different for others. Would not reccomend to anyone that gets stressed easily or is a bit more emotionally sensitive.

thenoobthisis: I feel bad for the school as in Berlin this school is pretty good compared to others. The interior is quite nice, the toilets sometimes work.

Barbara Kimball Walker: Great School but not a tourist destination

Jamal Güneser: I’ve been a student since first grade and switched during my first Abitur year. I can assure over half of my peer’s ended up either overworked, depressed or miserable mostly coming from the school. The teachers are insanely bad and creativity and originality are not being focused on at all and if your kid is not the best in written work he’ll most definitely fail all courses.

Timothy Dickerson: I wish I could give them a 0 Star. About 17 years ago we lived in Berlin Germany and wanted for our Daughter to start Kindergarten there, to make the transfer easier on her moving back to the US. We were turned down by the Administration there because our Credit and Financial situation didn't meet there standards! Today I am proud to say our Daughter is a Junior at the University of Georgia with a 4.0 GPA! It was a horrible experience and I would never ever recommend this school ever Worldwide! Instead of focusing on Education for German- American children they are focused on just getting children in from wealthy Families, even if they are Amrican or not! Not a good way of teaching anyone anything!

Megan Bogley: I went there for half of Kindergarten in the late 70s. It was rude introduction for a child that barely knew any German. I was miserable. I was always told it was a great school. I never got to experience any good parts. My neighbors did though. They were in the upper grades.

Helke W: We tried to get our daughter admitted to the school this year into 11th grade. As we are all American citizens we hoped to have our only English speaking daughter admitted. Our experience with the admissions process was very unpleasant! After applying for admission to the school in Fall we visited the school at the beginning of this year. While visiting the school we experienced a very negative and condescending treatment by the lady who gave us the tour. We had to endure comments like: 'Please apply somewhere else as this school has very little space. You bi-racial couples bla bla bla... (our daughter is bi-racial with black father and white mother) Please look elsewhere!' The overall sentiment of the lady that gave us the tour was VERY negative and discouraging. Her race comments were also not helpful and just reflected the insensitivity that is still existing and just came to a tipping point in America! We applied for admission on time and followed the process. As we are all American citizens and my husband is a veteran who served in the US Military in Germany, we should have had a decent chance to get our daughter admitted as American citizens supposed to have priority status when it comes to admission. Certainly, we were not hopeful after our visit to the school and just received the rejection as expected. Our daughter no longer has the desire to attend this school however, as a parent I feel that it is my responsibility to share my experience and I would hope that my comments may provoke a positive change when it comes to the admissions process.

James Meehan: Attended Grades 1 and 2 here ('88-'90) while my father was stationed in Berlin with the U.S. Army. I have fond memories of my German teacher (Gesine Schütte) and my German and American classmates. Was amazing getting to experience the fall of the Berlin wall!

Reza Ghobadloo: I went to this School for 11 years....Education wise this School is very good. The only problem is the amount of bullying that happens for minors and kids with certain problems. The staff doesn't do jack for the students that have these issues. PLEASE FIX THIS FOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONS

warm laundry: The friendship bear is ugly. Also one time there was a bird trapped in one of the rooms it was p funny. Pretty good education I guess, but there's cops :/

Berlin British School: what do users think?


Theo Kim: An absolutely amazing school! I genuinely enjoyed my time there! This is the place where I learned to speak English. When I first came to BBS in 2016, I could barely say a sentence in English. And now, I am one of the most fluent English speakers and writers in my year group! The teachers are excellent and are always highly supportive. I love how they ensure that students not only focus on their academic career, but also maintain a work-life balance, for the BBS community takes the health and well-being of students very seriously. The academic curriculum is very good because while the teachers give students clear guidance on what is expected from them for the IGCSE and IB examinations, students are also taught to think creatively and work independently without being too reliant on their teachers. I shall forever remember my time spent at BBS. It has truly been a paradise for me. The only problem I have is that I am unable to give a review of more than 5 stars!!

Hisham Bahauddin: Amazing school, top-notch staff, exceptional community. To mention a few, the principal Ms. Phelan…. Mr. Gilmore and Ms. Guilfoyle.THANK YOU BBS!

Milan Shilov: This school is very important to me, I learned my English here.It's amazing how good this school is at teaching languages, I was here for 3 years and learnt to speak perfect English and quite fluent German.I miss you, Berlin British School.

Alexander Gilburg: When I started off here, I couldn't even speak a word of English – now, I'm preparing for a future in the UK!Amazing school, top-notch staff, exceptional community.THANK YOU BBS!

Si Deering: I went to this school between 1980 and 82. My dad was stationed here and we lived on swiftweg

Faye Van Leeuwen: Food is bad

kim haejun: While in Germany, I spent 6-8 years old at bbs. I remember that the teachers were all good. He was kind and took good care of us. There were a lot of activities and I had a lot more fun than my Korean school life. It would have been nice if I could have been there longer, but it's just a pity that it lasted less than a few years.

Jojo Turm: Not good school! Was there between 2nd and 5th grade. Am now in 8th and much smarter. No science, tests or tests. You didn't even get any grades, only good or bad in the certificates. Teachers were mean and principals (Ms. Schulz) didn't do anything right. In the end you even had to pay the same for all children, i.e. the same for the sibling. German was only taught in German and no other subjects such as geography, history, ethics, biology, chemistry and physics. I had friends, but bullying and racism were part of everyday life. When you complained, the teachers didn't listen. Not to be recommended at all.

GEZGİN ELEKTRONİK: Very nice

Quentin-Blake-Grundschule Europaschule: what do users think?


Emelia Shutu: i came into the school to make inquiry on applying for school place 2 weeks ago and met a male teacher who was attending to the kindergarten, the gentle man was very friendly. i then came back today 17 August to see the school secretary, but i then met the headmaster, Mr Muller in the corridor, who was very courteous and later the school secretary came in and she was nice too. all i can say is the staff is friendly. i hope my children will get a place there.

Edna Edna: Such a great school am blessed to have my kids in this school..

Mohamed Eissa: English-German bilingual school. Very metropolitan and multicultural. Good management.

Rano Ranooo: 👍👍👍👍👍👍

Sandra Bresching: Unfortunately, my little cousins ​​go to this school and are groped by the 6th graders, racially humiliated and bullied very badly every day my little cousin cries that the teachers don't treat her fairly, neither nor pay attention and even give her trouble. I don't care what my little cousin is doing, no little kid deserves that. I will report to the school office.

Aysun Kara: Child no. 3 is now also at school. Have been active as parents for 11 years. The school is highly recommended. We have always been satisfied.

T K: Bilingual branch good - regular branch catastrophe - even educators flee in droves - no concept - complaints from parents and reports are covered up

Birgit Wunderlich: As always and everywhere in life, not everything always runs smoothly at qbes. Both my children went to school there (SESB branch) and I was in at least one of the EV classes the whole time. As everywhere, it depends on communication - this includes all communication partners! So if things don't go that way, you should ask yourself why that might be. In most cases it is NOT the fault of the school that supposedly withholds information. If you have a problem, all teachers and educators are actually willing to listen and make the necessary adjustments. Here too, as everywhere in life, the tone makes the music! I can only recommend everyone in the school community to address their point of view objectively and to be willing to accept constructive criticism, then it will work. The school also encourages active parents. So go ahead, get involved! By the way, commitment is a good way to really get to know the school and to change things. Just complaining leads to nothing. If I had another child, I would definitely register them at qbes.

Camy “Camelia” Graf: So far I am completely satisfied with the school. It is important to note that we, the parents, must work with the mentors to ensure that our children are successful in learning their subject matter in school. It should never be forgotten that teachers are also human beings, who in turn also have feelings and needs. You should never say "do it". ..one should say, "let's do this together".....

Vicco: I was a student here and that was the best time of my life. Great educators and teachers and great kids. Super international and open. Really a great school :)

Phorms Campus Berlin Süd: what do users think?


Dina El Zayat: You barely find a German teacher to teach German. There is very poor communication between the teachers and parents .
Response: Dear Dina El Zayat, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about your negative experience and impressions. We forwarded your concerns about the lack of German teachers to our HR department. We are happy to inform you that we are not short in staff regarding German teachers. Moreover, it is not difficult for us to find new German teachers for our school. In terms of communication, there is probably always room for improvement. However, we receive good feedback from parents about the communication between them and the teachers, which takes place regularly and in detail. If you have any further comments or suggestions, or if you would like to describe the specific issues you have criticised in more detail, we would be pleased to hear from you at admissions.berlin@phorms.de. We will of course treat this feedback confidentially. Best regards, The Phorms Team

Abigail Hesi: I really think the school is great. After elementary school, where the lessons were only in German, I switched to this school without having a clear knowledge of English and after only one year at this school I already had a high level. One of the few things I have to criticize is the homophobia and racism that is prevalent in some classes. Very often the teachers don't notice it at all, but they don't even notice it when they say so. I would still recommend the school!
Response: Thank you for your differentiated rating. We are very pleased that you found the change from a German-speaking elementary school to us and the rapid acquisition of your English language skills so positive. At the same time, we are very concerned about your experience of dealing with racism in any form, especially as we have been awarded the "School Without Racism - School With Courage" award. We immediately passed your feedback on to the school administration. If you would like to give us any further information, you are welcome to do so at berlin-sued@phorms.de Regards, Your Phorms team

Julia S.: We have our three children at the Phorms Campus South. Two in elementary school and the youngest in daycare. Our children definitely benefit from the bilingual concept. The older ones complain about the school meals almost every day, but that doesn't distinguish the school. I recommend both the school and the day care center to everyone! We are so glad that our children were accepted.
Response: Thank you for your positive rating! Many greetings, Your Phorms team

Gerhard Brünckendorf: Classes 1-4 were great, 5-6 a disaster After the change of management, there was constant fluctuation in teachers in grades 5-6, sometimes there was only one teacher for 4 weeks, then someone else came. In total there were probably 14 teachers in a row. A handover between the teachers does not seem to have taken place. The grades of the class crashed, many didn't make it for high school. The management couldn't get it under control and didn't accommodate the parents either. Even the school authorities tried to mediate. You kind of expect something different for over 600 EUR a month. Anyone who chooses this school should take a close look beforehand to see whether this situation has improved again.
Response: We are pleased that your child felt so comfortable with us from grades 1 to 4, but we are very sorry for your negative experiences in grades 5 and 6. We are always striving to improve our everyday school life and your opinion is very important to us important. For this reason, every year we give the parents of all Phorms children the opportunity to take part in an online parent survey for two weeks. The focus is on feedback from parents, because regular feedback on our educational work is of great importance and helps us to reflect on, develop and improve our work. We would like to address a few points of your feedback at this point. As a bilingual school, we need both English and German staff and we also employ specialist teachers for German, physical education and music. Because of this, we have a greater need for staff than government schools. In the event of teacher absence, parental leave or illness, substitute teachers are still used so that there are no lessons lost. Our educators also work out the timetable together, so that the current material is also dealt with in substitutions. We also collect data on our classes, employee assignments and absences. We are not aware of any case in which a class had 14 different teachers within a school year. We are also particularly proud of our high school recommendations, which received 97% of our students in 2016 and 100% in 2017. The funding forecast talks take place every year in January between parents, teachers, the school management and the students. Minutes are kept of all discussions. From class 1, we also keep files on all students who have special needs. Parents will be informed about all changes in order to be able to support their children in the learning process as best as possible. Parents will also be informed by grade 5 at the latest about foreseeable difficulties in relation to the Gymnasium recommendation. All documents and minutes of conversations are kept and can be viewed by the parents on request. You are welcome to contact our school management, who will provide you with the documents. With regard to school fees, we would like to emphasize once again that we are a bilingual private school with fixed, income-related school fees. We are proud that our school is open to different income groups. To this day, we are not aware that the school authority has checked and intervened. We would like to thank you for taking the time to write us your feedback and we are sorry that your son is no longer at our school. For further questions we are happy to help you. You can contact us at any time: berlin-sued@phorms.de Many greetings, Your Phorms team

Bart Simpson: My children have been at this school for years and we have nothing but good things to say: very dedicated teachers, perfect organization of the school day, nice extracurricular activities, great premises and modern equipment, delicious breakfast/lunch and snacks. The support is optimal, the agreements between the teachers are great. The Horter teachers are very committed and loving. As a mother, I always feel very well informed about the performance level of my children, and there are no surprises on the report day. We thought long and hard about moving here from a public school. The main reason was that I was worried that my children wouldn't be able to keep up financially with their schoolmates: I'm a single parent - and earning a normal salary. We live in a small rental and drive a 19 year old Golf. I didn't want my children to feel left out. We took the plunge and were pleasantly surprised. The mix at the school is like any other school in the district: among the parents are taxi drivers, business people, celebrities, shop assistants, job seekers, artists, doctors, sales assistants, etc. My children have never had the experience that other children see themselves as have felt "something better" just because they grew up in a house at Wannsee or because holidays in luxury resorts are standard. A good example is e.g. the children's birthday party. Of course, there are parents who invite the birthday guests to a day at Tropical Island, including a chartered bus and gift shop shopping for all guests. We celebrate more modestly, e.g. with a scavenger hunt in the park and pizza at the cheap Italian restaurant. We have never experienced guests wrinkling their noses. But on the contrary. So the experience of another commenter describing an incident on the playground is beyond me. That must be the absolute exception, I've never met a kid like that in 9 years at school. However, I have heard from other parents that local residents and their children like to use the school's private sports field, even if you have to climb over locked gates with your child. When parents, observing this, point out that it is private property that parenting funds the school, they get upset that these parents are arrogant just because their children attend a private school. In conclusion, I can only say that we are very satisfied with both the educational opportunities and the social community and are glad that we switched here.
Response: Dear Ms. Simpson, Thank you very much for your extremely positive review. We are very pleased that you are completely satisfied - whether with the school offer, the communication, the teaching staff, the equipment, the food or the organization. Our qualified and enthusiastic teachers, educators and pedagogical specialists form the cornerstones of our bilingual school concept. The income-related parental contributions also enable many children to attend our schools. We consider it just as important that you perceive the strong and unprejudiced sense of community within the student and parent community positively. We are always striving to improve. We are all the more pleased that you share your positive feedback. Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. If you have any questions or suggestions, we would be very pleased if you contact us (berlin-sued@phorms.de). We will of course treat your feedback confidentially. regards Your Phorms team

Elisa Braun: Since I have been attending this school myself for 9 years, I can say that the performance of the teachers is generally good, but it is becoming less and less. Unfortunately, I also have to say that the subjects that are taught in English are becoming fewer and fewer. However , mobbing or racism is not represented .
Response: Dear Elisa, We are pleased that you feel so comfortable with us, but we very much regret your view of the development that you describe. Every day we strive to improve our everyday school life and your opinion is very important to us. If you want, you can also contact Ms. Hardt directly to talk about the German/English language distribution in the high school. When it comes to language distribution, keep in mind that you are not being prepared for an international degree, but for the bilingual Abitur, so a balanced language distribution is essential. It is not without reason that 47% of the lessons in the Gymnasium are in German and 53% in English, and English is therefore still more than half the language of instruction. We hope that because of this fact you will continue to enjoy the lessons.

David Mann: For the KiTA it is stated that the Berlin model is used for acclimatization. It is not so. In the first week only 1 out of 3 professionals were present at the first separation attempt when the child was crying, even after more than 5 minutes the parents were not called and apparently the child was left to his own devices. The next attempt at separation should start the next day. As a layman, I don't want to have to explain to the "professionals" what the Berlin settling-in model says, which pedagogical steps are to be taken according to the study and quote the generally recommended guidelines.

Jonathan Göhre: Having been at this school myself for 11 years, I can testify that they have very competent staff. I can only recommend this school. The only minus WAS the food, which they have already improved.
Response: Dear Jonathan, Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are pleased that you like our campus so much. As you rightly pointed out, we have been working with a new caterer since the new school year, where fresh organic meals are a top priority. We hope you continue to enjoy our Phorms Campus Berlin South! Many greetings, the Phorms team

Bünni Kwam: Why do I get a 2+ in ethics even though I did a good job. That is not possible, this is a joke !!!! I got 89 out of 100 points. Please improve note.

Joel Herbst: Gut
Response: Thank you for your positive rating. Nice that you are convinced of our Phorms concept. Best regards, Your Phorms team

Mary AL Kodsi: It is a very good school for the students who don’t know English and deutsch

Mohamed Ismail: Great school and Kita with very professional staff and management. Nice atmosphere and friendly environment for children. I recommend!

nicole lauckner: totally disappointed today, how can be the teacher can judge and make a decision according to her feeling.. ignore the kids thoughts..

ADELAJA BABATUNDE: Can’t wait to see my daughters be part of this school

Annika Otto: It was an amazing school until SIS bought it.

Alfons Johann Maria Würms: Overrated

Irina Runova: I have a very positive experience with this school. My children have been here for two years. You now speak perfect English, but also German. The class sizes are quite manageable, which means that the teachers can devote more time to each individual child. The environment and the teaching staff are great. We found the ISVA through the Summer Camp that takes place every summer on the school grounds. My children started learning English there. We all liked it very much and we then registered at the school. I can only recommend.

Angexxna _: This school is so awesome😍

Freie Schule Anne-Sophie: what do users think?


Mohamed Nassar: Great school; fully bilingual (from grade 1), my daughter was only speaking English and in less than 6 months she became very good in German and same for lots of her friends who were the opposite (only spoke German and were able to speak English in less than a year)... Also the way of learning (individual learning, where they are not forcing everyone to do the same and just study &memorize the materials) and the learning houses are amazing...

Dawn Stubbins: Independent learning is not for everyone. Children have to work at it and be guided in what needs doing. Even the first grade children can be trained in independent learning, if it is for them. When children find it difficult to concentrate in an open environment it is unfair to them to put them in a place where their progression will happen at a slower pace.

Reina Sackey: Love the school

Liam Burger: Good concept, poorly implemented. From 1-4 grade it was very good but after lockdown you had no more motivation because the school has deteriorated significantly.

Zerphia “Zerphia” X Otaku: Up until the fourth it was easy and fun but at some point it gets too chaotic and during the lockdown everything has deteriorated massively. In addition, there is a continuing shortage of teachers and the teachers are under a lot of stress, which is why they often do not agree with each other, which often leads to confusion. Actually a good system, but poorly and poorly implemented.

Falan Falanov: The admission protocol wants to know more than you know about yourself. but it's mainly about who you are, how much money you earn so that the rich keep to themselves and the normal mortals keep to themselves =) everyone has the same chance in Germany.

guersel ahmad: Best decision to give our kids on this school. Have great development and learning self-taught great. My daughter, who now studies medicine in Munich, has a lot of advantages in uni because she learns independently and therefore comes along very well !!!

Merihan: Best decision been !! Especially for the children, who not only wait for the decisions of others to fall into their mouths, but also learn to take responsibility for their own decisions for their own lives at an early age. What better way to get your child "fit" for life outside?

noga atiya: Besides, I and another girl are in this school and we learned a lot of English, the teachers are fluent and explain, the school provides classes and there is a band and a talent contest, this school is just perfect! I write in Hebrew so that Israeli men and women will join the school and thus we will expand the *Israeli* community in the school!

Alida Rienecker: Child is happy, reads in both languages, loves the teachers and educators and we as parents are noticed.

International School Berlin: what do users think?


M S: Our experience with this school is not great. About bullying from the kid, we raised our concern multiple times but no reply even multiple times. Once we received reply that they cannot do much. Being non-native german speaker we asked for additional german classes that were provided in other sections of the same grade but not to our kid. In the end, when we got opportunity from other school and informed in June about leaving the school, school demanded us to pay for next whole year where our kid would be in another school without even considering their support level. Quality of support and education vary per class basis a lot, beware of possibility of poor quality support as well.

Lemon Plays Productions: Inadequate resources, many of the staff are disrespectful and unhelpful. Similarly students are disrespectful and annoying. The school lunches are part of the worst foods I have ever had. Uncooked noodles, bland eggs and overcooked potatoes. The rice looks like maggots on a plate, and maggots probably taste better as well. My experience in this school was not great. Also food for class trips are a joke.

Enzo Piro: Great school. Great Dealing with children and very nice atmosphere

Özlem Akcay: A great school with a high level of education. Strong language promotion.

Berlin Bilingual Secondary School: what do users think?


Willem Vladimir: The organization is horrible, they let students wait for hours just to tell them that the teacher they have been waiting for is absent. The school doesn't have real school building, currently only temporary ones which are barely suitable for education and the amount of students. Teachers have been fired in the middle of abitur and left students without teachers. I would not recommend this school to anyone who values education, unless you insist on a bilingual education and can't afford other, more expensive, bilingual schools.

Boyan Manchev: A bilingual co-educational secondary school in Pankow offering both the lower secondary (Sekundarstufe I), as well as the upper secondary (Oberstufe) level of education. International team of teachers. Small group of students per classroom, providing opportunities for individualised approach to teaching.

Evan: I mean it's not bad.

Christa Schwarz: Highly recommend this school. Our kids love going. It’s a very inclusive environment and all staff, starting from the principal to teachers to administration staff are incredible helpful and approachable. Everybody has an open ear and is friendly. Communications on all levels work perfect. We couldn’t be happier.

Edda Ostertag: Very disappointing application process. Teacher and Erzieher seems to miss the basic ability how to make a visiting primary kid feel comfortable. On the other side very fast judgement of primary kids.Should your kid not match the the imagined standard profile don’t bother to apply! Non inclusive school!
Response: Dear Ms Ostertag, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you found the application process disappointing. Please be assured that we are aware of our responsibility in checking whether our educational approach fits the children as we want to avoid them having a bad experience at school. As we always strive to do our best in assessing new students, your opinion is important to us and enables us to further develop and improve our work. Please contact us if you would like to give us more details about your experience (berlin-mitte@phorms.de). Your feedback will of course be treated confidentially. Best regards, The Phorms Team

Wenbing Li: The head of kinder is not responsible and arrogant. If you are not German avoid sending your little ones there since she is very judgmental and quite rude. The turnover rate is very high as teachers were complaining how bad her management is.
Response: Dear Mr Li, Thank you for your feedback. We choose our teachers and educators carefully and put high emphasis on excellent professional and educational standards and competencies. We are therefore very sorry to hear that you have had a negative experience. Your opinion is important to us and enables us to further develop and improve our work.Please contact us if you would like to give us more details about your experience (berlin-mitte@phorms.de). Your feedback will of course be treated confidentially. Best regards, The Phorms Team

Levi Sacher: I attend the Oberstufe of this school and have been part of it since grade 1. My english is basically on the level of any native english speaker. The best part about the school is easily how amazing the teachers are, people from all around the world that not only know more than any normal person could ever even dream of, but are also happy to share that knowledge with their students. School is actually something that I look forward to every single day, and really, what could be better than that, coming from a sixteen year old boy?

Beny Yz: Few weeks ago I just wanted to get some information about the kindergarten (kita) and went there. I went on purpose to see everyting from my own eyes. The lady there was not really willing to give some information and she was not nice. She did not really know details and called someone for details. If you sit there you should know the basic details and you can also read your own website which she recommended to me. I was on that day on vacation thus, was casually dressed. I think she wants to answer the questions of people that come there in a suit and upper class car. I must have also paid the maximum fee for the school but now your school is not among our choices....

Balthasar Duisberg: As a parent it has been a frustrating and disappointing experience to send my son to the Phorms primary school.
Response: Dear Balthasar Times, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you weren´t happy with our school and would appreciate it if you provided us with more details. Our parents´ opinion is important to us. Therefore, we conduct an annual parent survey which parents can take part in over a two week span. We focus on the parents´ feedback since it is important to our pedagogical work with the children and enables us to reflect on, improve and further develop our work. Please get in touch with us (berlin-mitte@phorms.de), and be sure that we will treat your feedback as confidential. Best regards, the Phorms Team

A.B.: My children go to this school and we have had really positive experiences. I really like the combination of teaching values, a high level of teaching and communication with the parents. I am very grateful that this school welcomed us with open arms and that my children already speak English so well. This school is demanding, but not elitist, and also stands out positively through numerous social activities. My children love going here.

Juliane Kaiser: Very good bilingual school. Recommended, open-minded and conscientious. For the past six years, I've experienced neither lust for money nor superficiality. On the contrary. Absolutely recommendable and no comparison to the brittle, unmodern state schools.

Bistro Les Amis: Disappointing. high expenditure of time due to a long school day, subsequent HA, still very bad grades, unacceptable cooperation between the children, no serious search for a solution. Very high student turnover. Individual points of light in after-school care and administration. A lot of catching up to do at the new school, good improvement now after 6 months.
Response: Dear Café-Bistro Les Amis, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We very much regret your negative experiences regarding everyday school life. Your opinion is important to us and enables us to further develop and improve our educational work. We would like to address a few points of your feedback at this point. As an all-day facility, we not only want to be a place to learn, but also to be a living space for our children and young people. In the close school community, which also spends a lot of time together outside of the classroom, the children have the opportunity to discover their talents, to interact in the group, to share and to prove themselves. Thanks to small classes and a good supervision ratio, the teachers are in close contact with the children and young people to enable them to have an optimal learning experience and development. We are sorry to hear that you had a different experience of the care and cooperation on campus. You raised other points in your review that we take very seriously and will discuss internally. If you have any questions or suggestions, we would be very happy if you contact us (berlin-mitte@phorms.de). We will of course treat your feedback confidentially. Regards, Your Phorms team

Alexandra Lindblad: great school, great teachers, students motivated to learn and a top school building. I can only recommend this school to anyone who wants to raise their child bilingually.

Nelson Mandela School: what do users think?


Priiya Rao: So grateful for the experience at this school. Amazing teachers and out of the world IB coordinators who understand a parents point of view completely. My son in IB12 is getting an immersion into studies like never before. Thanks NMS for creating this exhilarating learning environment ⭐️🌟

Konstantin Lutz: Cool school i like it lolGive me better grades tho 💀

Aidan Douglas: This school scarred me for life. I had a terrible time there that started with the headmaster telling me he didn't want me in his school. I was seen as a bad kid and was constantly accused of things I hadn't done. All teachers thought I was some kind of junky even though I was one of the few people in the school who didn't take anything. Instead of trying to find out why I wasn't good in class or disruptive I was constantly punished. The social workers would warn other parents to tell their kids to stay away from me. I had a very difficult childhood with neither of my parents being very good and now have been diagnosed with ADD. How did nobody in the entire school ever think to ask if I was okay?

Constantin Zhang: Most teacher are really helpful and nice, but some are, unfortunately, even though their intentions are good, incompetent of teaching. So you are basically on your own in those circumstances. This school is very liberal, that is, it’s totally up to you wether you show up to class, do your HW, or don’t do anything. There are no teachers who will push you, and ask you if you understood, or submitted your assignments. This is great for independent students who have a lot of self-discipline. The school is very chaotic though. This became even more obvious during the corona pandemic. Nevertheless, for Berlin standards, the school is good. Again, the school is great for proactive, disciplined, independent students.

carag goldeneye: really good school came to 3 grade their classmates were not very open last year now I'm in fifth grade and the teacher team is very encouraging. In homeschooling times in 5th grade they made a great effort for my classmates and me to have regular scheduled calls and offered online support and more . A horray to the 5a and 4c teacher team . 😁

Kerstin Rome: Best school ever!!!I’m miss it so much😭Very friendly kids and good education.

angelina hammes: The admissions person is incompetent. Instead of being welcoming and listening to the questions I had she did not want to listen and told me that they only offer places to students with 'highly mobile' parents. If she had listened then she would have known my situation fit this profile. This school is a joke and is unprofessional.

Alperen Ergur: I learned this place is self-contradictory: schools' target is highly mobile international families, BUT the school only admits students whose mother tongue is German or English.

Nwhww Shshs: Please jow can i contackt the school by email i am from iraq and i want to study in this school if the scool can send an invite to me i would love to study in thes school and i am from a rich high class familly and thes is my email please send me a replay to my email masifiahmad@gmail.com

K Junghans: Simply the best international school in Berlin.
