Innovative forms of teaching
Education at OEG is based on knowledge and real life experience and aims at preparing the students for participation and active involvement in the diverse society of the future. Our teaching takes place in different teaching environments, such as:

Even though more than 1000 students attend the school, there is a surprisingly calm atmosphere in the building, as the students quickly learn to take responsibility for each other.
