Internationales Abitur am SGO

Dear students,
dear parents,

we are pleased about your interest in this unique regional offer of the International Baccalaureate at our school. The Diploma Programme (IB DP, International Baccalaureate) has been offered worldwide since 1968 and is an internationally recognised educational qualification which is awarded by the International Baccalaureate Organisation based in Switzerland.

The IB Diploma is recognised as a university entrance qualification in many countries worldwide and is proof of special commitment when applying for a job.

Städtisches Gymnasium Olpe (SGO) will students offer the opportunity to get an IB Diploma in a two-year dual course of education which prepares students for the double qualification IB and Abitur (years 11 and 12 with G8). Thanks to the active support of our sponsoring association „Verein zur Unterstützung der Internationalen Schule Südwestfalen am SGO“ , this will be a free additional course which can be taken voluntarily by students who meet the requirements. We hope you enjoy reading!

Städtisches Gymnasium Olpe is a Candidate School* for the IB Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Städtisches Gymnasium Olpe believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP).  Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
