1600 students, 5-19 yrs.

The Kennedy School is bilingual, binational and bicultural in nature. Berlin provides the major funding. Tuition is free. It is supervised by a board of US and German officials and German and American parents.

The elementary program provides a general education which prepares children for continuation at JFKS and re-entry into German, State-side or overseas schools. Instruction is conducted in both languages continuously. The high school program leads to the German Abitur and the high school diploma, allowing students to attend German or North American universities. JFKS offers a full range of academic courses, including many electives.

Teachers (57% German, 43% American) are all certified. About 80% hold MA degrees or the equivalent; average experience is seven years. US teachers stay an average of three years, the Germans much longer.

The student body is 60% German, 30% American and 10% international. German turnover is slight, while 70% of the Americans stay two to three years. About 80% of the graduates go on to some sort of higher education.

The school calendar conforms to the German system. All German holidays and major American holidays are observed. The school day is 08:00 to 15:00 for Grades 7-12; 08:00 to 14:00 for Grades 3-6; 08:00 to 13:00 for Grades 1 and 2, and 09:00-13:00 for Vorschule.

Located in Zehlendorf, a south-western, wooded residential area of Berlin, the school's six buildings house an integrated elementary and high school. The school has 135 classrooms, nine science labs, two library-media centres, three computer labs, modern sports facilities, a fine arts and drama annex and a cafeteria.
