Saturday Language School

10th January 2015

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.
The educational provision and the child care services are geared towards children from age 1 ½ to 18 and they range from Early Years to Primary and Secondary School to international qualifications.
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, the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) followed by the International Baccalaureate (IB).
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.

An international School in Western Berlin

for children from age 2 to 18

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 spacious grounds offer ample space for various sports activities, school performances and events. In addition to the historic Villa Amalienhof, the campus houses an art and music studio, as well as a cafeteria, two libraries, a science laboratory and computer rooms.
The international school provides your child with an optimum setting for learning with comprehensive educational opportunities such as ISVA Summer Camp, Saturday Language School and well-equipped modern facilities embedded in green surroundings. Our experienced teachers strive to meet the individual needs of each child to ensure the best education possible.

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.
