A Dynamic Time of Transition

Students in Grades 6 - 8 follow a programme of learning that supports the transition from the inquiry-based IB Primary Years Programme to the more structured syllabus of the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) in grades 9 - 10. Students are supported with a homeroom teacher in each grade level, who oversees the daily homeroom times. We continue to support the development of the whole student and to extend the PYP learner profile to help students through this time of great growth and possibility.

The core curriculum framework is based on the Cambridge Secondary 1 Programme. All students follow the same continuous three-year curriculum. They have the option of choosing French or Spanish as a third language. The curriculum for German in the middle school is modelled on the Thuringia State curriculum.
