A strong community
The ability for teamwork is one of the key skills of our time. Anyone who has learned how to work together in international groups and adapt to diversity of human beings will succeed. And feel comfortable everywhere in the world.

On the move
Natural "brain doping" that increases concentration and performance, is healthy and trains endurance and team spirit? Of this, children should get a lot!

A place to feel good
It's simple: If you like the place you are, find good facilities and people who support you, feel secure and accepted, you learn better.

It’s all about being creative
Activating both halves of the brain boosts learning results. Being able to think creatively gives humans a competitive advantage over computers. Those who can express themselves artistically lead a more fulfilled life. A special focus at our school is music.

Languages and communication
Fluency on native speaker level in English and German, certificated knowledge of additional languages strong written and oral communication skills - our students are prepared for the age of international communication.

Research the future
No curriculum can cover everything children need to know for their future anymore. They will have to find and critically evaluate information throughout their lives. Their future - and ours - depend on their ability to find creative solutions.
