Orientation Level

Grade 5 is considered an orientation level and functions as a transition from elementary school to the different forms of the secondary school (i.e. Gymnasium, Realschule or Hauptschule). The focus of this level is cooperative learning as well as the facilitation of students according to their talents and strengths. At the end of this orientation level, the parents receive a recommendation for the future school form of their child. This recommendation is based on clear defined criteria including grades in the core subjects but also the evaluation of the student's learning and working abilities.

A big advantage of cooperative learning lies in the fact that students with different talents, interests and strengths can learn from and with each other. This strengthens their ability to live and work closely with others as well as feeling considerate for other students. Open forms of classroom instruction make it possible for teachers to apply various tools such as:

  • different difficulty levels 
  • different materials and media
  • individual help from fellow students and teachers
  • additional exercises 
  • individual working time
  • additional special needs support 


Liebe Eltern, liebe Erziehungsberechtigte, Mobbing ist ein Begriff, der in aller Munde ist. Er wird gern und häufig für alle möglichen Verhaltensweisen gebraucht, die uns nicht gefallen; für Streitigkeiten unter Kindern, Provokationen, Necken, aber auch für Schikanen, Übergriffe, Erpressung. Mobbing ist ein ernst zu nehmendes Thema. Nur mit der Unterstützung möglichst vieler Helfer kann diese Form von Gewalt bekämpft und das Opfer wirksam unterstützt werden.
Ab sofort ist
Frau Doris Johnson sozialpaedagogin(at)dbsaa.de ihre Ansprechparterin zu diesem Thema.

Dear parents, dear legal guardians, mobbing is a term that is on everyone's minds. It is used frequently for all kinds of behaviour which we do not like; for disputes among children, provocations, teasing, but also for harassment, assaults, blackmail. Bullying is a serious matter. Only with the support of as many helpers as possible can this form of violence be combated and the victim effectively supported.
As of now
