Staatliche Europa-Schule Berlin - nächste Runde!

Im Schuljahr 2021/22 begann das Dreilinden-Gymnasium mit der ersten 7. Klasse als Staatliche Europa-Schule Berlin mit den Partnersprachen Englisch und Deutsch. Der Abschluss ist das Abitur mit Zusatzzertifikat.

Der Unterricht findet zu jeweils 50% in den Partnersprachen Englisch und Deutsch auf muttersprachlichem Niveau statt. Die Fremdsprache ist Französisch und wurde in der 5. Klasse begonnen. Alternativ ist für Quereinsteiger auch Französisch ab Klasse 7 möglich.

Für die Aufnahme in die Staatliche Europa-Schule gibt es besondere Voraussetzungen (siehe unten).

Des Weiteren spielt die interkulturelle Integration insbesondere auf europäischer, aber auch auf globaler Ebene eine herausragende Rolle.

Welcome to the State Europe School Berlin (SESB)

This unique programme offers language and cultural learning with native speakers in both languages (English and German). The concept starts with Pre-school and ends with the German Abitur in German and English at the Dreilinden-Gymnasium, but also offers a qualification at the end of 10th grade (Mittlerer Schulabschluss).

For further information check the website of the educational department Berlin.

What is special about the SESB?

  • the subjects Biology, History, Politics and English are taught by native English-speaking teachers
  • native and partner language are taught separately in grades 7 and 8
  • special language classes for second language learners
  • electives from year 8

Possible subjects: Latin, Science, English/German as a second language, IT, Drama, Politics

  • French, begun in year 5, is continued (students who do not come from a SESB Primary School and did not learn French will join a French beginner class with students from the other branches)
  • exchange programmes on a European level (France, the Netherlands, Spain)

Entrance Requirements

There are three SESB-Primary Schools in Berlin (Quentin-Blake-Primary-School, Charles-Dickens-Primary-School, Galilei-Primary-School) and a fourth one is planned starting soon (Dreilinden-Primary-School). Pupils from these schools who have good or very good marks in both English and German are accepted to the SESB programme on a space-available basis. Other pupils starting with the SESB programme must take an English and/or German test to evaluate their language abilities/levels and suitability for the dual-language programme. This test consists of tasks in reading, writing and communication and lasts about 60 minutes.
