Celebrating our long-standing connection with the Kleinmachnow community

BBIS Berlin Brandenburg International School has proudly been part of the Kleinmachnow community since 2001, when we found our home on the Seeberg. Starting with just over 200 students, BBIS now welcomes over 900 students from more than 70 nations, reflecting our commitment to inclusion, innovation and action. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we offer three IB programmes, teaching in English while ensuring our students also learn German from Early Education onwards.

Our journey began in Potsdam on 2 October 1990, shortly before German reunification. After an unsuccessful expansion attempt in Potsdam, the school secured a future in Kleinmachnow, moving to the Seeberg campus. In December 2005, we proudly acquired the site and developed a zoning plan with the municipality of Kleinmachnow, marking a significant milestone in our school's history.

Since then, BBIS has achieved numerous milestones on this campus. We have built a state-of-the-art Sports Hall and Sports Field, enjoyed both by the Kleinmachnow community and the many local sports clubs. Additionnally, BBIS renovated Houses 1 and 5, and constructed a modular primary school building, House 11. This summer, we are excited to reopen the newly renovated House 2, where our journey on the Seeberg campus began.

Since becoming part of the Kleinmachnow community, we have maintained a close partnership with the Heimat- und Kulturverein Kleinmachnow e. V. In March 2021, we proudly contributed a collection of historic documents and artefacts from the "Karl Marx" Party School era found within our school buildings. During the campus development, we also secured the Karl Marx bronze plaque, which was once part of a memorial stone erected in 1953.

At a special ceremony, BBIS Business Director Burkhard Dolata presented the Karl Marx plaque to Christiane Heilmann, Chairwoman of the Heimat- und Kulturverein Kleinmachnow e. V., in the presence of distinguished guests including Kleinmachnow Mayor Michael Grubert. Burkhard Dolata expressed sincere gratitude to the Kleinmachnow community. BBIS looks forward to continuing the successful collaboration with the community of Kleinmachnow for many more years to come.
