Secondary School (IOS)
Our boarding section also accepts students who attend the Secondary School. This so-called Integrative Orientation School (IOS) is run by the community of Engelberg. It begins after primary school with grade 7, and spans three years. It prepares students for an apprenticeship, for secondary vocational school or for the Upper Gymnasium.
Having the IOS and the Gymnasium under one roof means each ideally complements the other, enabling us to give the individual support that students need. According to their performance, students are assigned to levels A or B. Their instruction adheres to the curriculum set by the Canton of Obwalden.
Students who have achieved the required grades may be accepted into the four-year Gymnasium after grade 8 or 9.
