The IDEALS in our school

As a Kurt Hahn school, the Round Square IDEALS are deeply embedded in Birklehof’s values, ideals and structures. Everything we do at Birklehof “is” Round Square, academically as well as in our extracurricular activities.

Though conducting our classes in German, leading our students to the German diploma called the Abitur qualifying them for university study or for dual academic and vocational courses, we do have an international student body. Students are encouraged to live the IDEALS every day inside and outside the classroom; on field trips covering the IDEALS; in their compulsory service; in outdoor education or the student council.

What being a Round Square school means to us

We pay special attention to the personal development of each individual student. To prepare them for the challenges of modern life, we want our students to be committed, responsible and active members of a community. Being a RS School and following the IDEALS is an integral part of this mission.
