The classic Path to Middle Graduation (O-levels)

There are many ways to reach the O-levels but the classic path to this day (in Germany) is the “Realschule” [similar to junior high school]. In order to best support our students on this educational path, the Zinzendorf Realschule exhaust all possibilities of modern and multi-facetted teaching.

In the orientation levels 5 and 6 we lead the students to independent studying so they can acquire contents on their own. We accompany them with diverse teaching opportunities and give them much free time for practical projects. In grade 7 students can choose electives to complement their curriculum. They can choose ‘daily routine, nutrition and social affairs’ (AES) or engineering. Unfortunately, we do not offer French.

From grade 8, career orientation gains a growing importance. With various opportunities, sit-ins in industrial companies, internships and our career finding fair JOBwärts! we strive to prepare our students for the career finding process step-by-step. Starting point for a specific career consultation is a previously conducted and evaluated analysis of competencies that can be a helpful tool for a later career choice. Economic and social projects help our students additionally to find and strengthen their interests. From grade 9 the subject Economics is also taught.

Of course there are also field trips: fixed part of the curriculum are a Ski trip on the Feldberg, highest mountain in the Black Forest, in grade 7, and a trip to the monastery Schöntal in grade 8.
