Education

What does socially responsible mean?

It means that we want all children to have access to our school and we want our school to make decisions based on sustainable principles that will benefit our society. Therefore we offer places to children from all socio economic and ethnic backgrounds and we try as much as possible to make ‘green’ decisions in our everyday running of the school.

Foundation School

In our Foundation School students are given their “learning foundation”. This is not limited to purely acquiring knowledge and facts, but includes the capability to organize, reflect and feeling self-confident, abilities crucial for their future learning development.

  • Grades 1-4 (combined classes: 1./2. and 3./4. grade)
  • Based on the Bavarian school curriculum, however enhanced with a more modern, global outlook, bilingual-lessons are being taught in English or German rotating on a weekly basis. This way we are able to assure concepts are understood and vocabulary skills in both languages are solid
  • Information- and communication technology is incorporated into the curriculum, starting in first grade
  • Class size is approx. 12 students
  • Classes from 10 am to 4 pm

High School

High School is preparing students for the IGCSE exams, the internationally acknowledged equivalent to the German ‘Mittlerer Schulabschluss’, recognized also in Germany. After that students may visit our ‘College’ in order to prepare for their A-Levels, granting worldwide admission to universities.

  • Grades 5-9
  • Based on the Bavarian school curriculum, supplemented with elements of other international curricula such as CIE, NAACE
  • The curriculum is predominantly being taught using Project Based Learning (PBL)
  • All classes are taught in English or German
  • At the end of High School, students complete the IGCSE exams, the internationally acknowledged equivalent to the German ‘Mittlerer Schulabschluss’
  • Classes are from 10 am to 4 pm, additional English lessons are offered from 8:45 am

College

Starting College our students have a clear understanding how to apply and enrich their knowledge as well as being able to critically analyze and question facts. The College years serve as preparation for the A-Levels including the realization of a personal project.

  • College prepares students for the A-Levels, internationally acknowledged exams comparable to the ‘Allgemeine Hochschulreife’. College structure is similar to university, giving students the opportunity to choose subjects according to their desired degree.
  • Some courses are mandatory A-Level exam subjects. Optional courses can be chosen according to the student’s personal interest
  • Each student is assigned a personal mentor for individual assistance with school work or the organization of projects etc.

Qualifications

We want to guarantee a wide array of possibilities for our students at home and abroad. The qualifications we offer reflect this. We are a recognised Cambridge CIE School. Cambridge CIE offers qualifications which are accepted world-wide.

  • Students will sit for their IGCSE at the end of High School
  • Students can graduate from College with the Cambridge International A-levels, which will allow them to study in Germany and abroad

„Create Schools shows that there is a way to educate so that the love for learning is ignited in each and every child.”
