We offer Kindergarten and Preschool as well as Primary and Secondary School (German: Gymnasium). Our school, founded in 2004 with its two campuses, is located in Berlin-Mitte in a very quiet area between Alexanderplatz, Monbijou Park, Hackescher Markt & Prenzlauer Berg. Today about 700 students from over 45 countries are enrolled at BCS.

As an International Baccalaureate World School we are authorized to offer the curriculum of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the IB Diploma Programme on the basis of the educational framework of Berlin. After 12 years, students may graduate with the IB Diploma and the German Abitur.

At BCS we encourage students to become active and responsible world citizens. This includes strong academics and multilingualism as well as the development of social and intercultural skills. An individual education together with a good academic, emotional, and physical balance are top priorities at BCS. We prepare students for the future by providing them with a solid foundation of interdisciplinary knowledge and skills, as well as different methods of learning. Students at BCS become life long learners, who gain the knowledge and skills necessary to adjust and succeed in an ever-changing world.

As an all-day school, we offer a unique and diverse Extracurricular Programme with over 50 different clubs, in which students can extend their learning experiences. Currently, students may choose clubs such as Chinese, IT , Cooking, Orchestra, Rock Bands, Digital Music, Skateboarding, 3D-Print, Ballet, Judo, Basketball and Creative Movie Maker – just to mention a few.
