SIS Regensburg 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.
At our bilingual private secondary school at SIS Regensburg, we teach according to the Bavarian state curriculum for nine-year secondary schools with a focus on languages.
As a school with a language profile, we offer, apart from German and English as the languages of instruction, French as a second foreign language from Year 6 and Spanish from Year 8.
At SIS Regensburg 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 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 to the accompaniment of music and dance. A highlight is the annual Night of Poetry and Recital, which always attracts a large audience.
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 Regensburg 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.
