Modern educational concepts understand schools as a place of learning where different demands, expectations, biographical experiences and cultural differences are negotiated. Based on the dignity and personal rights of the individual, we, those involved in the school life of the Mentora Gymnasium, wish for a school atmosphere in which good human cooperation develops when we work together and we wish our school living space through tolerance and responsibility of the individual for himself and for to shape the community anew every day.
With this in mind, we would like to formulate the school rules of the Mentora Gymnasium, with their rules and norms of behavior within the framework of the School Act.

Rules and codes of conduct

  • Disruptive, annoying or dangerous actions must be avoided. Bringing all kinds of weapons is prohibited on the entire school premises and at all school events.
  • Aggressive, insulting, violent, radical, racist, discriminatory, sexist and otherwise objectionable statements will not be tolerated. They will be punished according to the principles of proportionality, taking into account the school's internal educational and regulatory measures.
  • If it becomes known that students consume, trade in, acquire or own drugs / alcohol of all kinds, the school is obliged to intervene.
  • Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the school premises.
  • Everyone should feel responsible for keeping the school premises clean. Sufficient containers are set up for waste.
  • During the class, students' cell phones and electronic recording and playback devices are switched off and must be kept in their pockets unless their use is expressly authorized by the teaching teacher.
  • All sound and video recordings, unless approved, are prohibited on the school premises. If people are secretly photographed or filmed, this constitutes an encroachment on the person's general right of personality and thus an infringement.
  • If the cell phone is switched on during performance checks, this is considered an attempt at deception.
  • Eating and chewing gum are generally not permitted during class.
  • Drinking during class time is allowed, provided that it does not interfere with the class or the teacher decides otherwise.
  • We expect every student to treat their shared property (books, equipment, furniture, buildings) with care. In the event of willful or grossly negligent damage and destruction, you or the legal guardian must pay compensation. Damage to school property must be reported to the school management immediately.
  • Any conflicts that arise should be resolved amicably by the parties involved. If there are conflicts with a teacher, discussions with the person concerned, the class leader and the students are recommended. If the conflicts cannot be resolved here, the school management can be asked to mediate.
  • Due to the existing duty of supervision, students in grades 7-10 are generally not allowed to leave the school premises during regular school hours - unless the parents have given their consent.
  • Bicycles must be parked on the designated area. The school is not liable for theft and damage to bicycles and accessories, as well as for objects of all kinds.
  • The laboratory and usage regulations of the individual departments are part of these school regulations.

Absenteeism

  • If students are missing due to illness or for other unforeseeable reasons, the secretariat must be informed immediately. Upon returning to school or no later than the third day, a written letter of apology will be presented to the secretariat. Subsequent letters of apology are generally no longer accepted.
  • Adult pupils are obliged to provide evidence of the reason for their absence at the request of the class management (attestations, certificates). In the case of upcoming exams, the school must be notified of the absence by 08 a.m. and the medical certificate or certificate must be presented to the secretariat on the third day of absence at the latest.
  • If pupils want to leave class early due to illness, he or she reports to a teacher (preferably the class leader) and then goes to the secretariat, where the rest is arranged.

Leave of absence

  • Applications for leave of absence must be submitted in writing, in advance and with a reason.
