3. Please mention what steps are you taking beyond the traditional curriculum to ensure overall development of the students.
Schloss Krumbach International School is a unique combination of academic excellence, physical development, extracurricular diversity and a true family environment for students to grow and prosper.
First of all, there is friendship. At SKIS, everybody is friends with everybody. And yes, this is not an exaggeration. Students quickly learn to appreciate and respect their peers, sharing rooms, working on student leadership together, organizing events and creative projects. Then there is support. We believe in the talents and potential of our students, even if they themselves are not as confident yet. Apart from setting our eyes on world’s top notch universities and academic achievements, we offer a range of after-school activities to track and nurture unique sides of the students’ characters. Whatever they choose to focus on, we make sure they become the best of the best.

4. What steps does the school take to motivate and develop the students’ interest towards education?
Schloss Krumbach International School provides more than education in the main subjects. Outside of school hours, students can pursue their interests in clubs that give them the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and engage in real practice.
For example, our system of supervised homework time. Also, as a school that successfully provides bilingual education throughout the whole middle school period, we believe in and work with innovative teaching methods. This includes a concept developed exclusively by our school – so-called supervised homework time. What does this mean? In accordance with a specially designed schedule, all of our teachers are assigned a supervised homework duty every week. Basically, on-duty teachers stay at school after the end of the classes and spend time with the students at the classrooms to respond to any questions students might have. In a way, this concept is a form of an after-school program, a kind of extra learning mode because students do their homework with access to teachers, even beyond the school day time.
5. What are the career opportunities available to the students after completion of their courses?
At Schloss Krumbach International School, we believe a child’s school years should be a time when they identify passions that can lead to a future profession. The school’s teachers and staff are there to help students find their professional calling. After graduating from Schloss Krumbach, students may apply to universities around the world. SKIS Career Counseling Team helps students explore the potential college venues to facilitate their choice of the Diploma subjects or A – Level subjects. Both programmes provide high-quality international education in English language and are recognised by the universities worldwide. We are happy to assist you in deciding on which of the two programmes suits you the best.
