Stiftung Private Kant-Schulen gGmbH: Sapere aude, incipe – Have the courage to use your own understanding

The school’s governing body, Stiftung Private Kant-Schulen gGmbH has exemplified the philosophy of Immanuel Kant since 1959.

Following the fall of the Berlin Wall, the establishment of the Berlin International School in 1998 was a logical step towards Berlin becoming a metropolis that met the needs of its global comunity.

What distinguishes suc­­cessful global citizens in the 21st century? They are curious, competent, knowledgeable, sophisticated, insightful, courageous, prepared to compromise, considerate, of strong character and even-tempered. They have their eyes on the big picture and are forth­­coming. These and other learning goals have been formulated and are promoted by the internationally-recognised International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme, which is used to educate global citizens at Berlin International School – a multicultural school community, united by a common world-view.
