Our aim is that the pupils of the Alsterpalais school develop into self-determined, compassionate, critical thinking and cooperative young people. They will be the responsible global citizens of tomorrow – no matter what school qualification they complete.
No family at the Alsterpalais is forced to choose which school qualification they would like to pursue after Year four. The children simply continue to attend our school and decide in due course which school qualification is the right one for them.
Since we are an independently operated school, our pupils take their final exams externally. In our experience, this is a challenge that they can master competently and confidently from Year 9 onwards. Exam preparation also follows our school concept. The topics relevant to the examination are taught – when possible – across subjects and years. In addition, our educators continue to accompany pupils intensively and very individually throughout these years.
ESA – Erster allgemeinbildender Schulabschluss (external)
MSA – Mittlerer Schulabschluss (extern)
Abitur – Allgemeine Hochschulreife (zukünftig, extern)
