The European Baccalaureate is now offered by more state schools than the two European Schools. What is the EB? We also focus on the more established Lycee Michel Lucius and their path to iGCSEs and 'A' levels.
In this second episode focusing on secondary education choices in Luxembourg, I talk to Dr. Daniel Redinger, who helped to develop the international section (primary and secondary) in Lycee Michel Lucius, alongside his first love of "teaching in a truly international and multilingual school". [If you listen carefully you'll catch a hint of his time spent in Scotland, where he also taught]
Discussing the growing number of state schools offering the European Baccalaureate (EB) we are joined by the expertise of Max Wolff, Inspector for the European Secondary Schools and Deputy Head of the International School Edward Steichen, where he is responsible for the European classes across primary and secondary.
Also from Lycee Edward Steichen is Dr. Rolf Wiesemes - the English Language Coordinator and European Projects Coordinator.
Lycee Michel Lucius is an established international state school, offering iGCSEs and 'A' levels.
National schools offering the European Baccalaureate
Alongside the established European Schools (Type I) in Kirchberg and Mamer, the Luxembourg Government have developed international schools delivering the European Baccalaureate (accredited European Schools) in
- Lenster Lycee in Junglinster
- Lycee Edward Steichen in Clervaux.
In the next year or so two more will open: one in Luxembourg city and one in Mersch. This creates a much needed geographical spread of international options to the growing ex-pat community and local Luxembourg families.
