IB preface

The DSL offers dual qualification—the German Abitur in conjunction with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Lessons in year 11 and 12 prepare for both examinations. This is possible due to the consistent efforts of teachers to coordinate both curricula.

Following a scheduled authorization visit by IB representatives, the DSL was recognised as an IB World School in October 2010:

„These are schools that share a common philosophy – a commitment to a high-quality, challenging, international education.”
(IBO authorization, Oct. 2010)


This year, students will receive dual qualification for the first time.

Students are working hard and managing their time extremely well. The photos below show the first IB Class and the IBDP Coordinator, Dr. Cannon.
