Programme Languages:

The Gymnase accepts students whose levels of English language fluency enables them to access the programme they choose through mainstream classes supported by a normal degree of differentiation by the classroom teacher (estimated at a minimum C1 level as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages or its equivalent). The on site evaluation is composed of two elements:
  1. A group evaluation
  2. A personal interview: The purpose of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme interview is to allow the admissions committee to help the student understand the academic and service requirements of the curriculum, to inform students of their future commitment to the Diploma Programme, and to get to know each applicant. The ideal IB student can communicate clearly and honestly, can demonstrate a sense of who he/she is, and can verbalize why he/she wants to be in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
