The school is on its way to new pedagogical and room concepts because of getting an entire new school building. The new cluster system will go hand in hand with alternative teaching methods and didactics alongside with traditional ways of teaching. Having a teacher training seminar, all of the teachers are in permanent contact with new ideas, new methods and ways to enhance and evaluate teaching and giving feedback to students and student teachers alike.
