Our offer

Not for school, for life we learn!

Chuckling children's laughter, movement, hustle and bustle, friendship and pure joy. When students run into school laughing, when parents carefree hand their charges over to our care - then there is much more behind it than just modern equipped classrooms and home-cooked lunch.

Dedicated educators, green outdoor classrooms, holistic all-around care and much more contribute daily to making students feel in the best of hands at our facilities. The joy of learning and the spirit of research thrive here.

We place special emphasis on bilingual education with our native speakers from over 20 nations. With passion from the most diverse cultural backgrounds, students are optimally prepared for the challenges of the global and regional job market.


The intensive cooperation between parents and students, education providers and school administrators, partners, local authorities and sponsors enables school education at the highest level. This is impressively demonstrated by the many awards, certifications and seals of approval.

Notebook project

Our schools score with digital infrastructure, digital curricula and digitally competent teachers. Through digitization and the development of artificial intelligence, we will find ourselves in a constant process of transformation.

We would like to provide each and every one of our students from grade 2 onwards with their own notebook at a reasonable price, which will be their personal work device. We have opted for a uniform, universally usable 2-in-1 device (laptop and tablet), which meets all the requirements of a modern digital everyday classroom. A notebook that can be used for writing both electronically and with a pen, which contains electronic textbooks, has access to the school cloud (LernSax) and contains all the applications that are necessary in everyday school life. Families with several children or limited financial resources will receive special support for the purchase!
