About us

Our secondary school, called “Gymnasium”, will open in September 2021. The first Gymnasium grade is the 5th grade. Those future 5th grade students are currently (in February 2019) attending the 2nd grade of our elementary school. Our school grows together with our oldest students. Each year we open the next higher grade for them. Therefore, in June 2029, our first students will graduate from the 12th grade of the Gymnasium with the diploma called “Abitur”. The Abitur gives access to universities worldwide.

Instead of the Abitur we could also imagine offering the International Baccalaureate diploma (IB diploma). The IB program requires that in grades 11 and 12 a minimum of two thirds of the lessons take place in English. The decision on offering the IB will be made at the earliest in 2025 based on parent preference. We could even imagine a situation where half of a class will graduate with the Abitur, while the other half will obtain the IB.
