Questions and answers for starting secondary school

We have prepared some questions and answers for you to consider when transferring to our secondary school. If you have further questions please contact our Admissions-Team.

FAQs

... Phorms makes the difference.

Can my child transfer from a public school to you at any time?

Yes, we teach according to the Hessen framework curriculum, so that a change in one or the other direction is possible at any time, depending on language skills.

How many students are in each class?

Our guideline is 24 children in secondary school. 

Will my child be able to keep up in a bilingual school?

The change from a state elementary school to our bilingual secondary school is quite simple. Many years of experience at various internationally oriented schools show that children's language competence usually develops very quickly when English and German are both learning and conversational languages. Students who are exposed to such a language bath often succeed in catching up with their classmates within a few months and achieve very good results, provided they are motivated to do so.

Which foreign languages are teached?

Besides English, we also offer other languages, such as Spanish, French, Chinese and others.

Which degrees are offered?

We are a state-approved school and therefore offer the secondary school graduation as the highest school qualification.

Can children with special needs also be admitted?

Our concept provides a very individualized attention to our school children. Please contact our team for a more detailed consultation about the optimal needs of your child.
