Helmut-Schmidt-Schule is a school with round about 600 students aged 10 to 16. Our school is certified as an environmentally friendly school and we provide special offers for intellecutally gifted students. Besides, our school has two school dogs which support our students in learning. We offer a lot of activities for preparing our students for their future careers. Therefore, we offer a huge variety of obligatory as well as voluntary classes for pupils, for example, they can learn about firefighters or participate in a special scientific laboratory. Our school offers a lot of possibilities for the students to show their skills, for example, participating in the annual market in Usingen (Laurentiusmarkt) with self-made honey and apple juice. All our students learn English from grade 5 onwards. At the end of grade 6 our students have the chance to choose between Spanish and French as a second foreign language. We already have a partner school in Dakar (Senegal). Still we would like to find more partner schools in English, Spanish and French speaking countries since we want to offer our students the chance to develop their language skills and explore other cultures and countries. We are looking for a partner who is also interested in regular exchanges (starting to get to know each other through virtual exchanges and later on student exchanges) as well as a partner who is interested in cultural and social exchange. We are looking forward to getting to know you!On est une école à Usingen, près de Francfort (en Hesse). Nous sommes une école avec 600 élèves, deux chiens, des lapins, des moutons et une pédagogique extraordinaire. Nous cherchons une école en France pour un échange. A partir de la cinquième les élèves peuvent apprendre le français. Nous avons 4 groupes (entre 6 et 25 élèves par groupe) qui apprennent la langue. Pour améliorer la connaissance de la langue et faire la connaisance de vie en France on veut établir un échange.
