We have about 180 borders who come predominantly from northern, western and central Germany from different European and Latin American countries as well as China. Around 60 children and young adults from Holzminden and vicinity attend the school as external pupils.
The reasons for attending our school are as varied as the biographies of the children themselves. Here are a few: better career opportunities, closer supervision, clearer structures, job-related lack of time or a required move on the parents’ behalf, problems at home, families who traditionally send their children to boarding schools, and many more. No matter what the reasons are, the school administration holds separate interviews to confirm that the child is also involved in the decision to attend our school.
Throughout the school year, Internat Solling highly values the importance of hearing the pupils’ collective opinions as manifested through the Pupil’s Parliament.
