What is the daily schedule for boarding students?

Life at BBIS Boarding balances a structured schedule with free time, fostering a ‘home away from home’ environment in which students have the support they need to feel safe and comfortable.

While every day is different, the scheduled moments offer the security of a routine. Here’s what a typical school day looks like:


Breakfast and room check
8:00am - 2:55pm
School day including a warm midday meal at school
3:00pm - 4:30pm
Extracurricular activities at or outside of school
6:00pm - 6:30pm
Evening meal
7:00pm - 8:30pm
Supervised study session
8:30pm - 10:00pm
Group evening or free time
10:00pm - 10:30pm
Room check and saying "good night"
10:30pm - 06:00am
Nightly quiet time Sundays through Thursday


Weekday afternoons are filled with art, music, drama and sports activities offered at school and in boarding. Our boarders can also access extra language instruction for German.


On weekends, we regularly take the students on excursions to experience Berlin’s diverse institutional, cultural and recreational offerings. We also offer a range of fun activities to keep them engaged.

Four or five evenings a year, we hold a “Culture Night” to celebrate the different cultures represented in boarding school. Students from one country cook a national dish together with the other boarding school students. They also decorate the dining room, choose culturally appropriate music and prepare a presentation and/or an activity for the boarding group.
