Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The International School OWL combines the high standard of a German boarding school with a globally oriented education and a world-wide recognised diploma. OWL's students can expect an excellent education, consisting of full-time supervision in a multinational environment and a curriculum at a top international level!

Teaching approach of the school

With their two to three-year school education (grades 10-12) at the International School OWL in Paderborn, OWL's students earn the German Baccalaureate; a combination of an International A-Level diploma with additional German language courses. Similar to the International Baccalaureate (IB Diploma), the German Baccalaureate is internationally focused and can therefore open the way to study at top international universities. In addition, OWL's international students learn German from the very beginning and finally reach the level C1, which is required for studying in Germany. Classes are otherwise held in English.
