Gymnaisum (G9) (nine-year high school pathway)
Gives students an extra year
In addition to the eight-year high school pathway (G8), the Zinzendorf Schools also offer the nine-year high school pathway (G9), making it the only general education high school in the region to offer the possibility of obtaining a general university entrance qualification in nine years.
The nine-year high school pathway (G9) is taught according to the curriculum of the general high school. In the G9, the fifth and sixth grade orientation level is followed by a seven-year high school program starting in the seventh grade. This gives the G9 high school students an extra year to master the school subjects. The students of the 8-year and 9-year pathway attend the last two years of high school (course level year 1 and 2) together and then go on to take the same high school leaving examination.
The language sequence is English from grade 5 and French from grade 6.
From grade 9 onwards, students can choose one of three profiles:
- Spanish (as a third foreign language) or
- NwT (Science and Technology) or
- Fine arts and design
A wide range of subjects is available in the course levels.
A 14-day internship in grade 10 and grade 11 opens up the opportunity to explore later career fields.
More than school!
We put special emphasis on musical, artistic and theater educational offers as well as social projects. The nine-year high school (G9) offers the best conditions for integrating these into everyday school life.
A well-chosen offer of extracurricular events and class trips complements the education.
We maintain student exchange programs with schools from France and Spain.
The concept of transferability
In our schools, each student can follow his or her own individual path to their goal. Students have the opportunity to transfer to the vocational schools, the business high school and the social science high school or to the educator training program, in order to obtain a qualified educational qualification in accordance with their current school situation.
