Senior High School comprises of year groups K10 – K12. K10 has a dual function. It serves as the introductory phase leading to the upper level of Gymnasium as well as being the final class of the lower level. K11 and K12 constitute the qualifying phase. Academic performance in these four terms counts towards Abitur assessment.

Throughout Senior High School, students are taught as a unit.


In the German Stream, the exit qualification is the German International Abitur Examination (DIAP). In addition to the compulsory written examination subject of German, students must choose two further subjects as written and/or oral examination subjects at the beginning of K12.

A detailed description of options, the timetable and the assessment of academic performance for the Abitur can be found under Senior High School Guidelines.
