Academic Life

High School (Gr. 9-12)

High School is an important time in a student's life. During this time, they are making lifelong friendships, discovering their talents, learning more advanced material, and preparing themselves for the next chapter of their lives.

Grade 9 is the beginning of the four-year cycle that leads to our external university entrance qualifications and graduation in Grade 12 with the High School Diploma, as well as either the IB Diploma or Advanced Placements (AP®) exams. In grades 10 and 11 students can also choose to take International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE).

Paths to University

All students in grades 9 to 12 follow the SABIS® curriculum leading to a High School Diploma.

In addition to a High School Diploma, students in grades 11 and 12 have the option of two pathways to prepare for admission to universities in Germany and around the world. Students can take Advanced Placement® (AP®) courses set by The College Board or they can choose to enter the IB Diploma Programme. Students taking AP®s also take PSAT and SAT examinations.
