Lessons

Development means change. Pupils naturally experience this especially intensely. The goal of our lessons is to give them orientation and security. The teaching of learning techniques and common training routines are an integral part of this. We do not, however, believe in surprise tests or oral quizzes. But successful learning requires, above all, good interaction with one another. Our house rules and school dress code provide a framework in which learning is fun.

For grades 5-10, classes begin at 8:15 am and end at 2:05 pm. A delicious lunch is always part of the morning program.

A team of two classroom teachers guide each student throughout the school year.

No one likes to jump in at the deep end. We prefer to take our time at the start of high school: with additional revision lessons in mathematics, English, and Latin. This also includes studying vocabulary together.

In grades 5 and 6, a 40-minute daily sports session keeps students focused. And during the big break, there is time for outdoor games, together with the auxiliary teacher.

14 subjects in 5 days – that’s a tall order, but doable if some subjects are taught in bundles. Every Thursday the morning is reserved for 1-2 subjects: Time to experiment, explore or debate.

Learning thrives on routine. Every week we concentrate on mathematics, English and German in additional hours devoted to these subjects.

To keep the mind free for these subjects, there is no oral or written homework in the minor subjects, except for exam preparation.

A good start to the homestretch: the senior classes begin with a three-day training program “Fit for the senior classes”. Students revise essential basics in mathematics, physics and biology learned in middle school. Source research, media analysis and methods for solving problems in a structured way are also part of the program.

Most subjects are taught in the class setting.

Students can discuss individual questions in detail with the subject teacher during consultation hours. They are offered weekly: for Q 11 in the subjects mathematics, German, English and for Q 12 in all Abitur subjects.

A subject teacher accompanies students during study periods with quiet work atmosphere.

In the last weeks before the Abitur, we revise material covered by the examination subjects. The goal is to develop a routine in solving Abitur tasks.

The joint lunch is a highlight every day – for students and teachers alike. Our kitchen prepares fresh meals every day. The class eats together with the two class teachers. Younger students are read a short story while they eat.
