And where else, if not in a functioning education system, in a good school, can we succeed in making the next generation, young people, fit in the sense of fit for the future for the changing demands of working life. Based on this conviction and against the background of the rapidly changing circumstances after the political turnaround in 1989, Rüdiger School and Dr. Horst Jähnert founded the European Primary School Glauchau in 2003: A new type of school, which on the one hand was to be forward-looking, cosmopolitan, foreign language oriented and geared to the increasing challenges of the working world. On the other hand, values and norms were to play a major role in teaching.
The success of the first school proved the founders right, and so between 2005 and 2009 further schools were founded - in July 2009 the Saxony International School was then born, and all existing schools were transferred to the sponsor SIS. Finally, on August 17 of the same year, the school's sponsor was ceremoniously given the name of Carl Hahn, the well-known automobile manager, citizen of the world and native of Chemnitz.
Based on internationally successful concepts and oriented to the Saxon curricula, we offer a continuous, holistic educational program that starts at an early age. Solid technical knowledge, foreign language, media and business skills, social skills and orientation to the values and norms of our society are the pillars of our educational concept.
The schools of the SIS network are places where first-class knowledge acquisition takes place in small classes and through individual support. Team spirit and a pleasant learning atmosphere contribute to sustainable learning success. The latest scientific findings are always incorporated into the instructional design. Regular further training of our teachers in subject-specific science as well as in methodological-didactic areas ensures the high quality of teaching at our schools.
We want our lessons to provide an impetus for lifelong learning. Learning processes are therefore designed in such a way that content is not passively absorbed, but actively, independently and creatively acquired. We attach great importance to individual, age-appropriate and sequential teaching of knowledge and skills. Uniform school uniforms are worn at our schools because we consider it important to emphasize what unites us and to prevent exclusion.
We are convinced that every student is entitled to good teaching and must be developed, strengthened and supported in the sense of a holistic personality. We focus on holistic learning with head, heart and hand, want each individual to develop the willingness to take responsibility for themselves and others and thus be able to stand up for social justice in our society and to work honestly and independently. We see mutual respect, openness, respect, self-reflection, the ability to work in a team and the development of empathy, tolerance and social values as the cornerstones of our actions. Global thinking and awareness of sustainability also guide our actions.
For this reason, we cannot guarantee a perfect and error-free translation.
