The High School offers their students a large variety of extracurricular activities (e.g. clubs, academic, athletic and performance groups). These activities promote German-American relations and enable students to learn, refine and demonstrate their talents and skills outside the classroom. They play an instrumental role in the integration of German and American students.
Due to Covid-19 hygiene measures, many of these activities have moved meetings online. Please contact the advisors for more information.

Inclusion. Diversity. Empathy. Awareness. Service. The IDEAS Club at the John F. Kennedy School in Berlin, Germany was born of the demand that in our time of crises, in our Age of Anxiety, when democracy is fragile, when intolerance is increasingly tolerated, we must intensify our efforts to create a safe but challenging space to discuss and celebrate diversity. IDEAS is about challenging stereotypes, grappling with our biases, and tackling tough issues.
We have weekly meetings to discuss these tough issues, we visit classrooms to teach empathy and awareness, we have a quarterly journal and a JFKS IDEAS podcast (available on Apple, Google, Spotify, et al.).
