More than 10 years ago, a small group of young enterprising parents embarked on the adventure to found a school for their children, because they wanted them to learn in both German and English, the languages they were speaking at home.
At that time, there was no bilingual school in the East part of Berlin, and so these parents formed an association and in 2007 joined with Pfefferwerk Stadtkultur gGmbH to establish a bilingual primary school. They located a former East German school building, which had been abandoned for five years and went to work on a courtyard knee-deep in weeds...
