Academics at Berlin Metropolitan School centers on delivering the best quality school curriculum. To this end, 7th-8th grade BMS students study a uniquely designed program that draws from the best curricula around the world as well as the Berlin Framework Curriculum, focusing on skills rather than content alone.
Students are prepared for the international curricula programs in the more senior years and become well-versed in both the content and structure of the Berlin Framework Curriculum. Subject-specific skills, transdisciplinary skills as well as well-structured learning techniques are explicitly taught, ensuring students develop an effective tool-box of strategies needed for the Mittlerer Schulabschluss (Berlin State Grade 10 Leaving Certificate),
the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) in Grades 9-10, as well as the rigorous DP (Diploma Programme) from the International Baccalaureate Organisation in Grades 11-12. Our school schedule, curriculum, assessment, support structures, as well as our overall school educational philosophy, are built around the expectations required to succeed in the curriculum programs outlined above.
Pathways to success are found along the trajectory of our school programs and each program succinctly prepares students for all subsequent demands and expectations. In doing so, we prepare our students for success at each stage and in essence, prepare them for successful educational attainment at its core.
