The Nelson Mandela School is a public international school in Berlin, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf.Classes are taught both in German and English. Primary school is from class 1 - 6, secondary school is from class 7 - 12 or 13. After year 10, students take the middle school exams, after which the students have the freedom to choose between the German bilingual Abitur or the International Baccalaureate.HistoryThe Nelson Mandela School was founded in 2000 by the Berlin senate. At this time, the school was still in Lichterfelde and only housed three or four classes. It then moved to Pfalzburger Str. 23 where it stayed for one year before the secondary relocated to Kastanienallee in 2003. The primary remained at Pfalzburger Str. 23. An extension for the primary—a new building directly adjacent to the old one—was constructed in 2007. The school grew rapidly until the secondary saw the need to move again, this time to Pfalzburger Str. 30, just down the road from the primary. This happened in 2011. Until this day, construction on the secondary school yard has not completely ceased.In 2013, an extension of the school, called the NMS-NEO, was founded and moved into a building in another district. This school has only a few classes and officially belongs to the Nelson Mandela, however the purpose of it is to eventually become a different state international and bilingual school.As the old head retired in 2011, 2013 saw the introduction of a new one.ManagementBoth the primary and the secondary school have a head. The primary has a sub-head just for that school. The secondary on the other hand has a deputy head. Otherwise, the management consists of engaged teachers who do this along with teaching (they are paid).TimetablePrimaryPrimary classes commence at 8 a.m. and cease at 4 p.m. Exceptions are Fridays, on which classes generally cease at an earlier time. There is a morning break and a lunch break as well as free-time and SAS lessons (supervised lessons for working independently). Lessons are taught in either German or English, depending on the teacher.
