Let's try to answer some of the most basic and important questions of anybody not familiar with the German school system and Einstein Gymnasium in particular.
We are a secondary state school for girls and boys at the age of about 10 to 18 years and about 1000 students and about 90 teachers learn and teach here.
In Germany’s school system attending a “Gymnasium” is first and foremost meant for the more talented and motivated students. However, if students struggle in school or if things do not go the way they should in their private lives, we offer support. Click on “Beratung“ to learn more about our help and advisory system.
The school leaving certificate (German “Abitur”) is a Certification of General University Entrance Qualification at the same time.
As all German schools, we teach the “Hauptfächer“ (main subjects) Math, German, English and Latin/French (students can choose one of the two in year 6). In those main subjects students have to take class tests on a regular basis. Additionally, we have so called “Nebenfächer“ (minor subjects), for instance Physics, Chemistry, Music (see “Unterricht“ and “Fächer“).
Moreover, we offer German-English bilingual clubs, projects and lessons in many subjects. For instance, in year six, students may choose a bilingual class, such as Shakespeare for beginners, Cooking, Drawing, Reading and many more. Those classes are taught entirely in English.
Apart from English, Latin and French, we teach Chinese and Spanish. Click on “Unterricht“ and “Projekte“ to find out more.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
