The Rudolf Hildebrand Primary School (formerly Mariendorf Community School) is a school in the Berlin district of Mariendorf ( Tempelhof-Schöneberg district ). The school building is listed as a monument by the city of Berlin .

Building history

Since the 17th century at the latest, Mariendorf children have been taught religion and reading by the local sexton . Lessons took place in the sexton's workshop, which became too small in the course of the 19th century. In 1873 the former community school in Mariendorf moved into a significantly larger building on today's Alt-Mariendorf street (this building is now home to the Leon Kestenberg music school and the Mariendorf local history museum). Since the population of Mariendorf increased sharply around 1900, a larger building was needed again. This was built in 1907/1908 according to plans by the architect Otto Kerwien .

The five-storey brick building is based on older Berlin school buildings designed by Ludwig Hoffmann, the city councilor, and is an example of what is known as reform architecture . The smooth brick facade was structured by light sandstone cornices and small lattice windows. The facade design, as well as the side gables adorned with volutes and obelisks, point to North German models from the 17th century. The roof of the building is crowned in the middle wing by a raised hipped roof with a clock tower. The five-storey main wing is followed by a three-story side wing that connects to the lower neighboring buildings. Between 1952 and 1954 the building was expanded to include a gymnasium, this extension is architecturally based on the old building.

Todays use

The building still houses a school that has been named after the Germanist Rudolf Hildebrand since 1956 . It is an all-day school with three to four courses (classes per year) . As usual in the federal states of Berlin and Brandenburg, students in grades 1 to 6 attend school.

The college consists of around 30 teachers and around 15 educators. Many students have a migration background, so that almost 40 different nationalities learn together under the motto 'We live a community'.
