Hermes, Year 8: "Meine Schule ist bunt durchmischt: was den Charakter sowohl der Schüler als auch der Lehrer betrifft."
The secondary school is part of the Phorms Frankfurt Taunus Campus. The premises are shared with the day care centre and the primary school with reception. This allows all students to benefit from learning together with older and younger students.
Our goal at the secondary school is that every student who leaves with the German Abitur and optional certificates of the Advanced Placement Program (AP) is fully prepared to undertake and complete challenging vocational training or tertiary studies anywhere in the world in order to pursue his or her chosen career. The Phorms bilingual secondary school in Frankfurt is conceived as a comprehensive educational institution. We provide students with optimal preparation for the style of work that we expect to see increase in the near future, when changing careers several times and surviving in international society will be regarded as a matter of course.
Every day, the students at Phorms are part of a multilingual school community. Our educators are German and English native speakers. Language acquisition is key to the Phorms concept and our bilingual primary school attaches great importance to providing a high degree of support in both German and English.
Our policy in all of our schools is “performance with passion”. We consistently endeavour to lead our students to become independent and to become better at solving problems by learning to think for themselves – and we want them to enjoy the learning process. At the same time, we are also aware of the interests of young people between the ages of 10 to 18, and together with their parents and teachers, we take an empathetic approach as we accompany them on their educational journey.
