Homer Elementary School – a Greek/German School
The Homer Elementary School is special because pupils are taught by both Greek and German teachers. Ancient Greek is part of the curriculum, alongside other, traditional subjects. This intercultural technique is an optimal way to bridge the culture gap and allow for intercultural understanding and tolerance.

Former Situation
The Homer Elementary School is located on a historic preservation site called the Ludwig Hoffmann building, Pasteurstrasse 10-12 in Prenzlauer Berg. The outside grounds hold no historic significance, and only two old trees remain from the original outdoor design. The main building is closed on three sides and opens to a courtyard. On the opposite side of the courtyard there is a gymnasium, and living quarters close the remaining open space.
