PSS offers instruction in German and English to the seventh school year and then only in English, although German is a compulsory subject, whether as first or as a foreign language.
The school strives to classes there, to put no more than about 22 students each that especially learners who are intellectually impaired, can get individual attention. The school also take the necessary measures to prepare students for the challenges of the technology society characterized today.
