Secondary School (grades 5-12)

Secondary School (grades 5-12)


How does the enrolment for the classes 5 to 12 work?

Please send us the following documents if you want to enrol your child (the documents are written in German):

If your child enters the school, you have to hand in the report card of the last school two weeks before the beginning at the school year at the latest. If the entrance is during the school year, the transfer report card of the last school and a list of achieved accomplishments have to be handed in before changing to the DSTY. Before entering the school there will be a personal conversation with the school principal. The conversation should be carried out as soon as possible (at least before the first day at school).

Can Hauptschule and Realschule-junior high school students enter?
Haupt- and Realschule-students can enter the school and acquire the matching graduation (Hauptschulabschluss or Realschulabschluss). Since there are only a small number of Haupt- and Realschule-students, they are taught together with the grammar school (Gymnasium) students. They are separated by ability, so that they may all be able to achieve their final examinations. They can choose between economy or second foreign language as a subject. There is also a special tuition.

Who can enter the FOS and when can it be set up?
The FOS (higher secondary vocational school with emphasis on economy and administration) can be set up if there is at least a number of six students who register for it. In school year 2008/2009 the first FOS was set up at the DSTY.
The education in FOS lasts for two years. In class 11 an internship all year round is the main part of the school year. The students will only spend a third of their school year in school and the rest working at their internship.
In class 12 there are going to be full-time lessons at the school again which also include vocational subjects such as business studies/accounting, economics, business information technology and law.
With a graduation from FOS you will gain the Fachhochschulreifeprüfung which allows students to get into more than 150 Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts (Fachhochschule) in Germany. For entering the FOS the student has to have the "Mittlere Reife" (a graduation from Realschule oder for high school students who are entering class 11).

Please contact Ms. Klein for the registration.
