Technical High School / Grammar School
Our Technical High School/Grammar School (Technisches Gymnasium) approaches young people ambitious of getting their high-school diploma/A-levels. This secondary education (grades 11 - 13) focuses on occupation on the one hand (Building Construction, Electrical engineering, and Mechanical Engineering) and on natural sciences, languages, and social sciences on the other hand. Our students are provided with professional competences coupled with literacy (logical thinking, language using, and information technology applying) and civil ability (being responsible, being self-managed, being honest, respecting others, and appreciating various cultures), competences essential for people who live in our knowledge-based society, in a world of international collaboration and intercultural communication in the 21st century. Our modern, dynamic and holistic educational concept aims at competences, decisive for students who want to enrol at a university or start an apprenticeship. After graduation the entrance certificate for higher education (University/ College/University of Applied Science) is obtained.
We are offering bilingual instruction for our students majoring in Building Construction or Mechanical Engineering. Our bilingual students are enabled to apply the content of their bilingual technical lessons not only in their second language (English), but also in their native language. In other words, the specialist terminology is imparted in both languages.
In today's world of globalisation and international cooperation, promotion of language skills must be regarded as a key learning objective.
