The Ayb School adopted a 100-point evaluation discipline. As well as giving marks, the teachers have to submit assessment reports with detailed information about the student’s progress. There are no gradebooks and academic diaries. Instead, each student’s progress is uploaded in a separate portfolio to Moodle system.
The extra-curricular activities depend on what subjects the students are most interested in. These could include German studies, science hobby groups, homework, etc.
The school doesn’t have limited focus areas. Instead, it provides all-round education, where all subjects are equally important. At the same time, the High School students (grades 10-12) have the right to draw their timetable by themselves, basing on their career interests. When choosing the subjects, they should nevertheless choose at least one subject from each subject group. Thus, if a student wants to become a doctor and focuses on natural sciences, he/she still should pick a subject from the arts subject group.
Each High School student has its own educational package that includes mandatory and optional subjects. Mandatory subjects have both standard and advanced levels.
