Student Voices

Meet some of our students


Our diversity makes TES very special. It leads us students to appreciate our individuality, develop a strong sense of identity and gain a global view. 

Eileen, Klasse 10


My opinion is important here, because I am the class representative. I can say what can be improved and we can make new rules.

Estella, Klasse 3


My teachers treat me with respect and their classes are exciting enough for you not to get bored. I like my teachers a lot, because whenever I have a problem, I can approach them and they will help me.

Nicole, Klasse 7


My teacher is funny and the classes are good, too. Sometimes we make cool stuff, like yesterday we built flying things. The German Section is easier for me than the British section, because I am German.Elian, Klasse 3


At TES we have students from over 50 countries and we speak many languages. Because I can speak German, I will most likely go to university in Germany. Marcus, Klasse 7
