Results are in and we would like to congratulate the graduates on a job well done! 84% of NMS students received the diploma and the average score was 32 points. This keeps us above the world average of 80% and 30 points. The students that did not receive the diploma are already registered for retakes and I am confident, just as in years past, that they will successfully complete their exams. This was the case last year as well. The retakers received their diplomas giving the class of 2015 a passing rate of 95%!
The challenge now goes to the current students to keep the tradition going and the bar high. You can do it!
On Saturday we welcomed the new Flex pupils into the school. It was lovely to see so many proud children marching on stage, to meet new families, and to welcome familiar faces once again. Welcome to the NMS community!!
A big "thank you" goes to the children who performed on stage, to the teachers, and to the volunteers who helped making this day a special one.
Do you have more pictures of the Einschulung that you'd like to share? Send them to buzz@... We will publish them on the website.

Dear Parents, dear Students, dear Colleagues,
the first week of school has already flown by, and we think you would appreciate an up-date on how things are going at the NMS School.
The start of school ceremony – or Einschulung – for first graders was touching. We hope that all who attended enjoyed the festivities on Saturday, 10 September. The school team extends a warm welcome to all the new members. We are looking forward to working closeley with all of you to ensure the best possible educational experience for our students.
A word on the management: most of you are aware that the school director and deputy positions have yet to be confirmed. NMS and the Berlin school administration have established an interim team under the leadership of Matthias Rösner, head of Sportschule im Olympiapark, with Lutz Mannes as upper secondary coordinator, Sarah Dent as middle school coordinator and Ina Claussen as primary school principal. They are supported by Dr. Cordelia Premkumar and Charles Spiller for the IB program.
Furthermore the GEV representatives are available to answer any particular questions you might have. You can reach them by telephone or e-mail.
We are looking forward to a wonderful Festival of Nations, at which we hope to meet and welcome you more personally, as we celebrate the truly international spirit of our school.
Best wishes from all of us,
Sarah Dent, Lutz Mannes & Ina Claussen
