boarding school Hohenwehrda

The Hohenwehrda boarding school in Hesse educates students from the 5th class of a secondary school and grammar school, and takes them through to a General Certificate of Secondary Education. The 5th and 6th class are conducted as an orientation level. We attach particular value to transparency within the school models. 

The preconditions are created and met in the 6th class itself. The objective is to also give secondary school students the option to be able to go to the higher level secondary school in Haubinda or Bieberstein. There are dormitory buildings grouped around the erstwhile hunting lodge, in which 120 children and youth live and learn together. Hohenwehrda distinguishes itself as a pure boarding school. 

We look upon our school as a social network which, in these times of continuing individualisation, represents an offering to foster and stimulate children on their path of self-discovery in the framework of a holistic upbringing. Our 13 boarding families each comprise six to ten girls or boys, for each of which two teachers are responsible.
