In our secondary school (college), students complete the general higher education entrance qualification after the 13th (G9) school year. From our point of view, the following reasons speak for this.
More solid education:
a) Our students gain about 200 hours per subject in German, Mathematics and English.
b) The G9 system allows for more time to prepare students for university and professional life.
c) Mature young adults: Many years of experience show that students with a shortened secondary school career are often overburdened with the choice of studies or career after the secondary school graduation.
d) More time for life: In addition to learning at school, leisure time, hobbies and interests are also part of the holistic development and education of young people.
The G9 system therefore offers significantly greater opportunities for self-development during school time.
