Leaving certificates

Here, all students do the same thing:
obtain a diploma.

Those who have their child educated at a private school usually expect something more. More from their child, but above all from the school. The Montessori School Herzogenaurach is a private, state-approved school. For many years we have been successfully preparing our students for the state school-leaving qualifications. After the qualifying secondary school leaving certificate and the Mittlere Reife, our students successfully enter the profession or they continue their way at our Montessori Fachoberschule in Nuremberg up to the Abitur.

Admission to secondary schools

Students who wish to continue their education at a state secondary school (Realschule) or a state grammar school (Gymnasium) must take part in an entrance examination, the so-called trial lesson. In intensive counselling sessions from the 3rd grade onwards, we discuss the further school career of the child in order to gain clarity about the further career at an early stage.
