In-depth general education and scientific work promote the ability to work in a team and independent learning; this is where we want to accompany and exploit the potential. Our family-like school community and fair dealings with each other promote our pupils’ self-confidence and cooperation with each other.

In our teaching, we impart specialist knowledge at the highest level; at the same time, we place particular emphasis on training social and practical skills. Both aspects are important for successfully mastering studies and entering professional life. This includes that our pupils learning to organise their tasks, research independently, work in a team or give presentations.

Even though group work is an important aspect of teaching in secondary school, we make sure to create an individual learning situation for each pupil. In order to be able to learn successfully, it is crucial to know your own learning speed and which methods you use to learn best. In this way, we succeed in building on personal strengths in a targeted manner. This not only leads to more fun in learning, but also to optimal performance.

Cross-curricular programmes and project-based teaching encourage a broader view of the subject matter. In addition, the international and cosmopolitan climate at DISDH offers our pupils plenty of inspiration to look beyond their own horizons.

In addition, we offer each pupil an individually tailored support programme which corresponds to their personal abilities and helps them to develop these further in a targeted manner. Your child has the opportunity to participate in the “Pupils Helping Pupils” programme. Alternatively, we offer individual support measures such as “German as a Foreign Language (DaF)”. And also support your child with dyslexia and psychomotor skills. If intensive support is necessary, we will be happy to advise you.

As an international school, we place particular emphasis on sound language training. In secondary school, our pupils can choose Dutch in addition to the most important European lingua franca, English and French. Our school maintains regular exchanges with other international schools, e.g. a 14-day stay at another German school abroad in north-west Europe in grade 11 or the opportunity to spend some time – up to a year -abroud in grade 10. In this way, our pupils develop strong language skills and a lively connection to foreign languages.

In addition, we offer our pupils the opportunity to acquire internationally recognised certificates such as the Cambridge Exams for English or DELF for French.

DISDH working groups stand for fun, games, languages, music, sports and lots of good humour. This is exactly what we want our pupils to enjoy, lesson after lesson, in the DISDH working groups.

Our programme offers something for everyone and is full of variety. With an age-appropriate offer and pedagogical concepts, we cordially invite you to join us.
