Reflecting our bilingual profile, we provide our students with skills that go beyond the requirements of a 'G8 Gymnasium'. At the end of year 10, the testing modules of the Cambridge Programme serve as one of the benchmarks for student achievement.
In year 8, students participate in the testing programme of the state of Hesse. By taking the IGCSE exams at the end of year 10, students lay important foundations for their further international education.
Towards the end of the qualifying phase in year 12 the students take their Abitur exams. Our students take the state Abitur exams in German or English. Depending on the selection of examination subjects, the Hessian international Abitur can also be taken.
In addition, students in years 10-12 have the opportunity to take part in the Advanced Placement Programme. This is a programme of exams with up to six examination modules that can be taken cumulatively in the six half-years of the upper secondary level. This certificate is recognised worldwide and facilitates access to international universities. Upon presentation of the certificate in conjunction with the Abitur, many universities recognise the credit points (which correspond to an undergraduate year) and forego the otherwise mandatory entrance exams. This saves time and study fees.
