The German School Washington regards the preparation of its students for life after school as an elementary part of its educational mandate. The school supports students on their path to university and a career. For this, students examine their strengths and weaknesses with respect to careers and college. In particular if they are considering whether their future will lie in Germany or the USA, we can assist our students by informing them about the many possibilities and help them take the necessary steps toward a successful start to their life after school.

For more information about our varied offerings, please view the “Concept of College Guidance” below.

Facebook Group for Grades 10-12

Dear students in grades 10-12,

The school receives a lot of information about universities, scholarships and internships digitally. In order to be able to forward this information to you efficiently, we - the College and Career Planning and the Student Council - would like to meet in the

Facebook group “Deutsche Schule Washington Oberstufe.”

Naturally participation is voluntary, but it offers many advantages:

• Access to all important information on the topics of college and career

• Access to all important information on the topics of high school and Abitur

• Access to all of the Student Council’s important information

• Contact with other students in grades 10-12

• After the Abitur: Access to the alumni group of the DSW, that is, even when your school days are over, you will belong to the DSW community and we will not lose sight of you!

So: Search for the group on Facebook

“Deutsche Schule Washington Oberstufe”

And join!

(To do this, just enter “Deutsche Schule Washington Oberstufe” in the search field at the top.

Do not confuse with other groups of the DSW!)
