About Charles Dickens Primary School Berlin

Charles-Dickens Elementary School was opened in 1971. In the 1992 school year the Europe School branch was added. The school is named after the famous author and philanthropist Charles John Huffam Dickens (1821 – 1870). Charles-Dickens-Grundschule has both an English-German Europe Branch and a regular German Branch.

The school is located between the Olympic Stadium and Berlin's Grunewald forest, with very convenient connections to the public transportation system. A third building was added to the spacious school grounds in 2007. The 450 students at Charles-Dickens-GS have access to a well-stocked English-German library, 2 well-equipped computer rooms, a students’ kitchen, a large cafeteria and a huge green playground.

Avoid this school if your child needs any kind of extra support. The staff have no understanding of pastoral care. They failed our child in her native language in admission to the in first year, because of her hearing loss. Then they proceeded to talk in front of a five year old to tell her that she’d failed.

This school is a mess or at least it was. I have visited this school from 2004 to 2010. At this time the teachers were poorly educated. There were two teachers (which I won't name (one with red hair)) which stood out. Especially with there lack of intelligence and ignorance. Some of them were pedagogically irresponsible. The teachers have not even managed to settle a conflict, directed against Jews. In the end, the Jews left the school because the teachers couldn't help them. I can't recommend this school at all.

Ich kann diese Schule leider nicht empfehlen wenn man einen Sohn hat.Nicht nur aus eigener Erfahrung kann ich dies behaupten sondern auch durch den Austausch mit anderen Eltern, deren Söhne diese Grundschule besuchen/besucht haben. Die Schule hätte am liebsten Jungs die sich wie Mädchen benehmen....aber dies ist mittlerweile nicht nur eine unangenehme Einstellung der Schule sonder auch ein großer Teil der Gesellschaft...Es gibt einige engagierte Lehrer, jedoch auch welche, die einfach nicht hätten Lehrer werden dürfen (Inkompetenz ggü. Schülern und Eltern). Haben Sie ein lebendigen Sohn, dann empfehle ich Ihnen eine Grundschule, wo Jungs auch Jungs sein dürfen..
