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.

Native speaking teachers (in language of instruction)

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 the school's language of instruction

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.

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 each students will complete their homework in study hall each day. In grades 5 to 7 however most of the time this is the case.
