Every year our Lower Secondary School students in Year 8 participate in the national standardized test (VERA 8) in the subjects German, English, and Mathematics. As part of their course work, all students in Year 10 take part in the examinations for the Intermediate Secondary School Certificate (MSA). Our Year 12 students receive, after successfully completing all their course work and exams, the Upper Secondary School Certificate (Abitur). It is the highest qualification we offer our students. In addition, students in their final two years at Phorms may also study and prepare for the AP (Advanced Placement Program). As part of this, students complete courses and examinations at college level. The AP prepares students for international universities and is also offered at American and Canadian High Schools.
