Ratio of local students to international students

In total about 85% of our students are local. Many of our students however have spent a considerable time abroad. In the bilingual track the ratio is approximately two thirds local to one third international.

Native English and German speaking teachers

All our teaching assistants in bilingual classes are either native speakers or on a native level due to university studies and / or considerable time spent in English speaking countries.

Language support for students not fluent in English and German

As we are a bilingual school, both German and English are languages of instruction. For students who have just moved to Germany we offer individual training (German as a foreign language) for them to catch up as fast as possible. Nevertheless it is important to state that a basic knowledge of the German language is important to be enrolled.
English is taught in the CLIL subjects as well as in the regular English course. Moreover are students are taught Business English as an additional subject starting in grade 9.

Additional language classes offered by the school

- Business English
- French

- Spanish (extracurricular)

Does the school employ teaching assistants?

Yes we do. Each class has their personal teaching assistant who is with them in various subjects. The teaching assistant therefore is the best person to contact about anything going on in the class.

Use of technology in the classroom

We have a computer and smartboard in each classroom.
Our classes can use ipads and chrome books.
Moreover we have an IT-room for computer-based courses.

Is the school ready to use virtual classrooms when needed? (e.g. teaching lessons online if the school is closed, e.g. during COVID-19 closures)

All our students and teachers are provided with a Microsoft Office 365 account.
We want our students not to lose the IT competences they gained during quarantine and lockdown and therefore conduct three to five days per year as online days on wich all lessons are held via Microsoft Teams.

Do students practice religion at the school? What religion?

Following the Bavarian curriculum our students attend relgious education courses in either the catholic or the lutherian faith.

How does the school accommodate non-religious students or students of a different religion?

For these students we have ethics / philosophy courses. Of course students who theoretically are catholic or lutherian, but still prefer ethics over religion are also welcome in these courses.

External examinations or assessments available

- ABIplus, a modular vocational education programme that offers three vocational pathways: Accounting Data Entry Clerk, Business Assistent and Multimedia Assistent
- Cambridge Certificate

Results in these examinations

Generally good results.

Do teachers assign homework to their students?

Yes they do. We however have "study hall" as an integrated part of every day. This means that students have the chance to do their homework while being supervised and if necessary supported by their teaching assistant.

Approximate hours of homework given

As mentioned above, by the time they come home, they have already had the chance to do their homework. Of course it is not possible to guarantee that all students will complete their homework in study hall each day. In grades 5 to 7 however this usually is the case.

Percentage of students who pursue further education post-graduation

All our graduates have the possibility to attend a higher educational institution. The vast majority does so either right away or after a gap year.

Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

Yes we do.

Learning support offered

We have an on-site team of school psychologists.
Moreover our teachers are continually updated on how to include and support children with special learning needs in workshops led by experts on this topic.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Our teachers are encouraged to provide students who finish their assignments faster and better than others with additional exercises or projects that stimulate their abilities.

Student access to education psychologist

As mentioned above, we have an on-site team of school psychologists. Their doors are always open for our students.

Entry evaluation for students

This depends on the school a new student has attended before.

Brief description of entry evaluation required

As stated above, this question cannot be answered generally as it depends on the school new students come from. Feel free to contact us about this issue so that we can sort out what exams (if any) are required in your child's case.

Waiting list

There is one for some classes.

Deadline for registration (new academic year)

There is no set deadline. As we are often fully booked pretty early it however makes sense to contact us as soon as you know that you will be looking for a school in Munich for the new academic year.

Students can join after academic year begins

Yes we do. Provided there is an open place in the respective class, this is not a problem.

School start time

Supervised care before/after school

Yes we do. Students can stay on site until 5 pm. During this time they can either attend extracurricular activities or be supervised to study.

Food alternatives for special dietary needs (ie. vegan, kosher, halal etc)

We offer two options for lunch every day. One of them always is vegetarian.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

We are a small school and therefore like a family in which everybody knows and supports each other. It really is the one thing that most of our students and teachers like best about Obermenzinger Gymnasium that nobody is anonymous as it is often the case in the big state schools.

Teaching approach of the school

We motivate our students to think outside of the box. It is our goal to provide them not only with the knowledge but also with the skills they need in life. Moreover we see PBIS (Positive Behavior Instruction and Support) as an integral part of our philosophy. This means we avoid telling our students what they should not do, but always tell them what they are expected and / or allowed to do instead.
