The Muse International School Berlin will promote a combination of the globally recognised International Baccalaureate programme, project-based learning (PBL) and a diverse range of projects with an international group of artists. English will be the main language of instruction, with all students also taking German.

Anthony Skillicorn, Head of Muse International School Berlin, said, “Our curriculum is holistic and challenging with creativity at its core. We believe that actively engaging students in discovering creative solutions is the most exciting and effective way of learning and best prepares students for life in the 21st century. Our means of instruction focuses on PBL, which challenges students to apply what they have learnt to addressing real-life issues and questions.”

Skillcorn said a key element of the school would be a variety of carefully selected international guests, local artists and creative entrepreneurs from a broad range of disciplines, including visual and media arts, sculpture, architecture, painting, performing arts, music, photography, design and crafts. “In close collaboration with our teachers, each resident artist will initiate a range of artistic projects with Muse students,” he said.

“Our school celebrates creativity, experimentation, engagement and discovery. The Muse curriculum builds connections between academic and artistic disciplines to facilitate meaningful learning and enduring understanding. Teachers will help students reflect on their own learning as part of their formative assessment. As part of the worldwide Nobel Education Network, Muse students will be connected to students and educators around the globe and have meaningful international learning opportunities.”

The Berlin school follows the opening of schools in Oman and Turkey in 2013 and adds to the Nobel Talent Network of locations in Portugal, Vietnam and Austria.

Muse International School Berlin will be open for local and international 7th and 8th grade students from September.
