Photo of International School in Berlin, Germany BBIS is located on nearly 400,000 square metres (100 acres) of forested land, on the shore of Machnower lake. The site, called the Seeberg, is very quiet, away from traffic and congestion, crisscrossed with peaceful foot and bicycle paths. Nearby is the Hakeburg, a castle rebuilt at the turn of the 20th century on the ruins of a medieval fortress.

The school is only a few minutes drive from the residential areas of southwest Berlin and the Brandenburg suburbs, and within short driving distance of Potsdam. It can easily be reached by car and public transport from Berlin and Potsdam.

Landesschule Pforta is a Grade 9-12 German boarding school with a long tradition and special concept of furthering talented students in languages, music and natural sciences. Situated close to the cities of Leipzig and Naumburg in eastern Germany, instruction is through German, and every student has to choose one of three centers of interest: Foreign Languages, Music or Natural Sciences.

At Pforta, about 400 students from all parts of Germany live and learn from the 9th to the 12th grade, i.e. from the age of 14 to 18. Our boarding houses do not offer merely accommodation for those students who live too far away to go home every day, but also a safe and secure living and learning environment.

Conditions of admission include good performances at school, social involvement, and passing the entrance examination. The school-leaving certificate (Abitur) prepares graduates for university study.

The aim of our education program is not the constriction of one-sided specialization, but rather the broadening of general higher education in a field where individual interest and capabilities motivate to additional efforts and higher performances.
