In recent years, numerous college preparatory German secondary schools, or Gymnasiums, have widened their curriculum to include advanced-level core courses in English. Many of these English language courses are part of a learning track leading to dual certification - the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma as well as the highest German school-leaving certificate, the Abitur. The chief advantage is financial; because the German public schools are state-funded and do not charge tuition, students enrolled in these types of schools enjoy the opportunity to earn an IB Diploma, a certificate that can otherwise cost them tens of thousands of euros. Students must, however, have an excellent (native speaker level) command of the German language. What follows is a list of Gymnasiums (grades 5-12) in the Rhine-Ruhr region that offer the IB Diploma Program in English.
