It is our mission to educate our students to become independent global citizens and empathetic decision makers. We inspire our students to use their power of imagination to shape their future responsibly.
Our complex and increasingly dynamic world confronts us and the new generation with a multitude of issues, questions, problems and opportunities. Only if we address these creatively - individually, but also in cooperation with others - will we be able to maintain a world worth living in and shape a sustainable one.
We give our students the tools they need to achieve their goals. These include, among others:
Creativity and constructivism are central elements of our BAUHAUS model, which runs programmatically through our educational work at all age levels.
As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, we follow the acclaimed IB curriculum. The IB Diploma is the most widely accepted entrance certificate to universities worldwide, including Germany.
