I am the year mascot Trixi. Every child at the IGS knows me. You can also call me Trixi Traube (Trixi Grape), because this is my real name.

I'm sure now you would like to know what IGS means. It is an abbreviation for the German term "Integrierte Geamtschule" (the German form of the comprehensive school). It means, that we want to be a school for all children. (Different to the traditional German school system with three different types of school.)

In our flyer you will also find a different link to the letters IGS, which are related to our educational concept.

The letter I for "Individuell" (individual), G for "Gemeinsam" (together) and the S for "stark" (strong).

  • Individuell (individual): the students are individually fostered and challenged by differentiated tasks.
  • Gemeinsam (together): students with different abilities and inclinations learn together in one form. In this way we promote a feeling of togetherness.
  • Stark (strong): all forms of graduation in the German school system are united in our school. Our goal is to prepare our students for the world of work as well as for academic careers. We encourage our students to be strong, self-reliant and self-confident.
