The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma is a diploma granted by the IB Foundation which is accepted worldwide. Bertolt Brecht Gymnasium offers determitted and energetic students the opportunity to earn the IB as an additional graduation diploma to the Saxon A-Levels.

IB scientists from grade 11 successfully organized and investigated the ethical, environmental and tastiness of the burger as part of the IB Group 4 Project. Once the unwilling coals were actually hot, the scientists heated, flipped and eventually tasted and compared beef burgers, organic burgers, corn burgers and vegan burgers with the help of classmates from the Saxony International School. A satisfying morning of scientific investigation!
