No. The entrance level of a student depends on
- His/her academic performance
- Personal discussions with the student and his/her parents
- Observations and evaluations by the students’ Grade 5 and 6 teachers.
The school recommendation is based on a comprehensive assessment of the individual student’s entire development process and situation. For this, we use indicators such as
- study results
- average grades
- working speed,
- working technique
- social aspects
Yes, we have had many successful Matura graduates from non-German speaking families. Because of the pathway assessment in grade 5 and 6, everyone involved will have a good idea if a student has the potential and capabilities to succeed at the Matura. However, due to the small classes and individual support, some students actually improve their performance so much that they can be “upgraded” to the Matura pathway, too. We can proudly say that we haven’t had any Matura graduate fails in the last 7 years!
Those students whose grades do not allow for grade 11/12 admission can either apply at other international high schools (e.g. RIS) or commence their tertiary education at vocational or technical colleges in Germany and Switzerland.
When children have reached the language level required to be accepted to class, the school’s level-adjusted subject classes and additional DaF (German as a foreign language) classes will provide the necessary support. Parents can additionally choose to support their children by registering them in German-language focused afternoon classes at the school or private tutors.
Yes. Kindergarten students enjoy their first weekly play-based English lessons, and in Basis Level, bilingual English elements in selected subjects (e.g., social studies) will be added for enrichment. This process is followed throughout Primary School, finishing the years 5 and 6 with bilingual Biology classes with a strong emphasis on English. The path to diverse language acquisition will be further strengthened in the Secondary School on the way to the bilingual Maturity, where up to the half of the subjects can be taken in English.
The school fees will not increase to cover any construction costs of the new building. This was explicitly confirmed by the school board at the annual general meetings of the past. Fee increases to adjust to the inflation rate, on the other hand, cannot be ruled out in the future.
Afternoon courses are entirely voluntary and available for students from Kindergarten to Grade 7. The courses are offered by our teachers and cover a wide range of extracurricular subjects and activities in accordance with popular demand.
