Sometimes during the admissions process I have the opportunity to talk with new parents about their expectations, and often the question of teacher qualification does come up. Of course, all our teachers have to be certified and go through a thorough recognition check by the German authorities. Equally (or more) important is what happens to teacher professional development once they are employed.
Three weeks into the school and trip week on the horizon make us hope that the beautiful weather just continues until end September! When your children go away with their teachers, they have a unique opportunity for both outdoor learning and social development as part of a group. This is why we insist that all students must participate – although as a parent it is not always easy to let them go.
