Have we already got used to the fact that the children at IMS do very well in the Year 3 comparative tests every year? No. We are very pleased!

Background: All over Germany, scientific institutes survey the learning level in grade 3 for reading, spelling, and mathematics on behalf of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic of Germany. In addition to all state schools, some independent schools also participate voluntarily, including IMS. We want to know how successfully the children learn with us.

In 2022, our pupils have solved the tasks in the discipline “reading” 18 percent more often than the average pupil in Germany. We know from research that children growing up bilingually master spelling later than monolingual children. Nevertheless, our children’s spelling skills are at the average level. Our children solved the mathematical tasks 24 percent more often than the comparison group of the same age. We are happy for the children and thank the teachers for their successful work with the pupils.
