At our bilingual private Secondary School at SIS Regensburg, we teach according to the Bavarian state curriculum for eight-year secondary schools with a focus on languages. English and German are equally important, both as languages of instruction and in other parts of daily school life. Each subject is typically taught in one of the school's two teaching languages for the duration of one school year.
German- and English-speaking teachers – who are usually native speakers – teach at our Secondary School. All teachers are state approved and either completed their teacher training in Germany or have an equivalent qualification.
Creative Activities in Daily School Life
Art and music, in particular the performing arts, are an integral part of our private school. Performing arts is a required subject from grades 5 to 7. The students learn German and English poetry and plays and stage them using music and dance. The annual Night of Poetry and Recital attracts a large audience and is always a highlight.
Certificates: Abitur and IB
Our students graduate with the Bavarian Abitur. However, as a recognised IB World School, we also offer them the opportunity to simultaneously obtain the International Baccalaureate (IB). In grades 11 and 12, students follow an integrated programme that prepares them for both sets of exams. The academically challenging combination of Abitur and IB is only offered at a handful of German schools, making it one of the distinct benefits of attending SIS.
Access to Universities across the World
With the International Baccalaureate (IB), your children earn a university entrance qualification that prepares them superbly for university studies, especially in the English-speaking world. The Diploma Programme is characterised by three distinctive features. The subject area Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) gives students the opportunity to engage actively in arts, sports and community service activities. The theory of knowledge course teaches students to develop independent and critical thinking skills. And by crafting the extended essay, they practise the methods of academic work extensively.
The secondary school at SIS Regensburg is a state approved private school. Please take note of this important information on the school's status.
