Service Description

The grammar school provides according to aptitude and performance pupils pupils who have completed elementary school an in-depth general education, which meets the requirements for admission to university studies or comparable vocational training. The Abitur examination leads to the general higher education entrance qualification certificate.

As of the 2019/20 school year, the nine-year course of education leading to the Abitur will become the norm at grammar schools, starting with the 5th and 6th years. The existing G8 years will be phased out. One of the 99 public grammar schools will continue to offer only the eight-year course of education. Three grammar schools offer both the nine-year and eight-year courses in parallel (so-called Y model).

The state of Schleswig-Holstein supports G8 lunchtime supervision and open all-day schools at grammar schools.
