The European Baccalaureate is the leaving exam for European Schools, and is accepted for university entrance throughout Europe and the world. The European Baccalaureate allows students to choose subjects according to their strengths and interests in the areas of math, science, arts or humanities, and students study at least ten subjects in two languages. The European Baccalaureate diploma opens doors to further study in wide variety of disciplines.
Elected by their peers, Student Representatives play an important role in the school. Student Representatives lead the Student Council and sit on the Secondary Participation Council to make sure the ideas and concerns of the students are heard by school management.
Under the guidance of the Student Council, all students are invited to develop their leadership skills by forming new student committees, such a social, environmental or fundraising committees.
Under the guidance of their Mentors, teachers and Careers Counsellors, students are encouraged to explore possible career paths and university courses. Students are guided through the various higher education application procedures at universities throughout Europe and the world.
Each class has a Mentor teacher who meets with students once a week, and is the first point of contact for students, parents and subject teachers.
Cycle Leaders are responsible for overseeing the activities in each Cycle. Any questions that cannot be answered by the student's Mentor teacher, should be directed to the Cycle Leader.
Max, Class of 2020
Thanks to the support of ESH, I've been able to follow my passion for Paleontology and now have the opportunity to pursue it at the University of Bristol, a pioneering university in this subject. I'm hoping to possibly become a university professor/researcher in the subtopic of Paleoclimatology, a science that focuses on the study of past climates, which is particularly useful to better understand the causes and effects of our current global warming.
Irena, Class of 2019
I am enrolled at the University of Maastricht as a European Law student. I plan on finishing my Master's degree in the UK, as well as completing the LPC exam. Ideally, I would like to practice law as in several European countries. One of the things that struck me the most about ESH from the very start was the numerous languages and nationalities mingling together in a kind of big and welcoming stirring pot. ESH overall offered a very warm and understanding environment in which to pursue the most important years of my secondary education.
Julia, Class of 2019
I attend Erasmus University in Rotterdam where I study an International Bachelor of Economics and Business Economics. Once I am done with my studies I hope to work in an international company hopefully one day as a manager. I will never forget the support I have gotten from the teachers, their availability throughout my final year has been very helpful and important as I knew that I could count on them. I will definitely miss the people and the atmosphere at ESH, and the constant contact between staff and students.
