Developing the Whole Personality

This includes not only the transfer of knowledge, but also the development of creative talents and social skills. Pupils should develop joy in their ability to accomplish and achieve something.

We help our students, against the background of their own life goals, interests and values, to use their strengths and to set priorities. In addition we offer other advisory options in cooperation with the Telos Institute for Student Counselling and Education Consultancy based in Tübingen.
