Federation-and–States Inspection (BLI)

From November 10th through November 14, 2014, the German School will undergo its second Federation-and-States-Inspection (BLI). As commissioner of the Federation and States Commission for Educational Work Abroad (BLASchA), Ms. Schroeder-Klein will lead this inspection according to the guidelines of Quality Management. We are confident, that we will, once again, receive the most prestigious award of “Excellent School Abroad”. The BLI-Team, lead by our Deputy Head of School Mr. Juergen Sarpe, is preparing all that is necessary for a successful inspection in November.
