We are obliged to comply with the essential school regulations of the state of Saxony-Anhalt. Thisapplies in particular to the transfer and finals regulations.However, we are free in the choice of pedagogical methods and the implementation of the provisionsof school law and can determine our own pedagogical profile.This is also reflected in our school programme. We give children and teenagers the space and opportunityto discover and develop their interests and talents. At the same time, we attach great importanceto strengthening the sense of responsibility for oneself and others. It is our aim to accompanythe pupils on their way to a successful graduation certificate and to optimally prepare themfor life after school.
Students with partial performance deficits are dealt with separately and specifically. A partial performanceweakness on the one hand often brings strength on another. This means working on theweaknesses and promoting individual strengths.

A training programme is currently available for dyscalculia.As a member of networks such as „School without Racism- School with Courage" or „See the biggerpicture", we constantly put ourselves, our projects and our methods to the "test".In order to be able to offer all students the most suitable type of school, Grovesmühle’s offer includesattendance at the grammar school, the secondary school education course and the technicalsecondary school in the subjects "Technology" and "Health and Social Affairs“.
School can only succeed if it is made in an atmosphere of great mutual trust. This presupposesthat different personalities are accepted and taken seriously by students and teachers with their individual characteristics.
In recent years, the Grovesmühle received numerous awards for his work in the school and extracurricular field.Beyond the normal school operation, pupils and teachers are very successfully involved in various projects.
Since 2011, Katja Must regularly visits our 5th and 6th graders with her Labrador. The dog-supported pedagogy not only provides a better learning atmosphere, but also improves the social behavior of the students and helps to reduce stress. The children's self-confidence is strengthened and they develop a positive attitude towards school. "The dog doesn’t demand. He won't tell any secrets, he doesn't judge. The children can be who they are." The communication of the dog is direct and unambiguous, knows no mockery and no reproaches.
