Our school is based on Maria Montessori's science of education. Montessori observed that every healthy child is interested in the matters of the world and strives to learn. The development of the child follows an inner construction plan, what means that there are individually timed phases of sensitivity for certain contents. In a prepared and thus challenging environment the child will choose a material to work with what is adequate. The teacher has the role to only support and observe this process.
Our students can attain the following certificates:
Montessori-Abschluss (Montessori certificate; practical work with a theoretical part, presented on stage in front of public, year 9) Erfolgreicher Hauptschulabschluss (successful termination of secondary school - with sufficient grade point average; after year 9) Qualifizierender Hauptschulabschluss (qualifiing secondary school termination; students taking a special test at our neighbour school; end of year 9) Mittlerer Bildungsabschluss (middle qualification; students taking a special test at our neighbouring school; end of year 10)
