SIS Ingolstadt Secondary School prepares the students for two attractive school-leaving certificates – the German Abitur and, if desired, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. With the German Abitur and the IB Diploma, there is no limit to the educational opportunities our students can pursue.
We teach according to the Bavarian curriculum for nine-year secondary schools with a focus on the sciences.
In the interest of a solid and multi-faceted education, we focus not only on bilingualism, but also on mathematics and the natural sciences. We conduct science projects on a regular basis, both as a part of normal lessons as well as at off-campus locations.
Starting from Year 6, we teach French as a second foreign language.
At SIS Ingolstadt English and German are given equal importance, both as languages of instruction and interaction. Each subject is usually taught in one language – either in English or in German – for the duration of one school year. However, great care is taken to ensure that our students acquire subject specific terminology in both languages and that the subjects are taught equally in German and English as far as possible.
In addition to the ability to intuitively participate in multilingual lessons, our students also acquire solid and hands-on IT skills.
Art, music and athletics are also an integral part of our private school. Our art room provides the space where imaginative works of art are created and then exhibited on school grounds; various ball sports can be played and practised on our sports field.
Our students graduate with the Bavarian Abitur. However, as a recognised IB World School, we also provide the opportunity to simultaneously acquire the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. In Years 12 and 13, students follow an integrated programme, that prepares them for both sets of exams.
The academically challenging combination of Abitur and IB Diploma is only offered at a handful of German schools, making it one of the distinct benefits of attending SIS.
Our students take national and international benchmarking tests in mathematics, German and English on a regular basis. The test results facilitate teachers in the performance analysis and enable management to benchmark our school against other institutions. Students also participate in international competitions in mathematics, history and other subjects.
The secondary school at SIS Ingolstadt is a state-approved private school.
Spaces that Invite Learning and Activities that Unterpin Our Culture of Learning
We are convinced that the place where students learn has a decisive influence on how they learn. We therefore place great importance on an open school space that provides a welcoming atmosphere to students, staff, parents and guests alike, thus creating a pleasant overall environment. We cultivate multiple signature school events and regularly participate in activities that involve all SIS schools around the globe.
