The International School Villa Amalienhof is a multicultural learning community that provides a quality education for young learners. We encourage our students to be reflective and critical thinkers, to be internationally-minded, life-long learners in a changing world. Our dedicated team of teachers foster a shared sense of responsibility, community, and respect, while helping students realise their strengths and develop their individual abilities to be the best they can be.
The International School Villa Amalienhof (ISVA) provides children of various nationalities with an optimal environment to learn and grow together. We aim to foster your child by assuring a high quality of teaching in a safe and protected environment. We also instil a sense of responsibility and appreciation, and of course an excellent education. We place great importance on a close cooperative exchange between our pupils, parents and educators.
The curriculum at our international school is based on the bilingual concept and the implementation of valuable suggestions of the English education system.
Since 2012, ISVA is run as a substitution school in Berlin offering pupils the opportunity to obtain all qualifications available in Berlin, from MSA to bilingual Abitur and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). Subject to authorisation, ISVA is aiming to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) in September 2016.
Many of our former pupils continue their education at renowned universities. Our highly qualified and seasoned teachers and the excellent work of our international team create a unique learning environment for the pupils at our international school. Once a year, pupils have the opportunity to participate in a school trip to England to experience the English culture and to visit local universities such as Cambridge, Oxford and London.
We foster our pupils individually and respond to their varying degrees of language proficiency and learning levels taking into account their nationality, religion and origin.
We motivate our pupils to become more independent and to take organizational ownership in order to pass the MSA exams successfully.
Our teachers are always available and dedicated to support, advise and prepare our pupils for a successful graduation.
We prepare our Sixth Form pupils for international qualifications (IB and bilingual Abitur), a prerequisite to access universities worldwide.
The school entrance is located at Reimerweg 11.
Sufficient parking spaces are available. You will reach our school via BVG bus lines M49, X49, M37. Located in immediate proximity to the Brandenburg districts Falkensee and Dallgow-Döberitz, our all-day school is also accessible via the public VBB transportation system.
From Berlin Mitte via A100 and B2/B5 to Heerstraße 465.
ISVA continues to enrich the diverse educational opportunities in Spandau. I am delighted that the school can enrol more pupils with different cultural and social backgrounds thanks to their numerous expansion measures.
I have been repeatedly surprised, and touched even, by the dedication, infectious enthusiasm and caring attitude displayed by all the staff here at ISVA. Their commitment creates the warm atmosphere which contrasts markedly with that at far too many other schools.
A great school! Congratulations!
Located in the western part of Berlin, the Campus of the International School Villa Amalienhof is surrounded by 60.000 m² of wooded parkland.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) will replace the current English Abitur (A-Level) at the beginning of the upcoming school year 2015/2016. After introducing bilingualism in 2012, our pupils will have the choice to obtain the bilingual (German-English) Abitur, the International Baccalaureate or both.
The educational services of the all day school are aimed at pupils from the catchment area of the metropolis of Berlin, as well as highly mobile families wanting to provide their child with an excellent education in an international environment.
