Introducing – The Veit-Höser-Gymnasium - Our school

The VHG is a Bavarian "Gymnasium", a school form that takes children aged ten or eleven to the highest level of general education – the "Abitur", equivalent of A-levels or graduation – within eight school years. Our school counts about 660 students (in 2015) and is one of 6 equivalent schools in the Straubing-Bogen area. Our school’s premises are situated on a small hill, overlooking the Danube basin to the west. The students and teachers of this school are dedicated to the ideas of sustainable development and preservation. As a result, our school has won numerous awards for our commitment to environmental and ecological awareness. Our school was built between 1970 and 1973. Its name, "Veit-Höser-Gymnasium", was chosen in 1977. The year 1979 saw the first students graduating from our school and being handed over their "Abitur" certificates. Between 1995 and 1996 the building underwent a substantial renovation period and has been modernized continuously over the past two decades. Since 1995 the VHG has been an UNESCO-associated school, becoming part of a global network of more than 10,000 educational institutions in over 180 countries. These schools are particularly dedicated to the values and ideals of promoting cultural dialogue, sustainable development and international understanding and peace.
