The weighing of academic performance elements is based on decisions made by the subject teacher group and/or the all faculty body and the details lie in the pedagogical responsilibility of each individual teacher.
Curricula of each subject:
At the German International School Washington D.C., Latin is offered as a third World Language in grades 8 to 10 with four lessons per week.
In grades 8 and 9 the textbook Viva (Verlag Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht) is used. In grade 10, original Latin literature is read.
Students who take Latin as a 3rd World Language from grade 8 onwards can acquire the Latinum through an examination in grade 10. Information about the Latinum examination can be found in the Richtlinien für die Ordnung zur Erlangung der Allgemeinen Hochschulreife an Deutschen Schulen im Ausland (Rili DIA-PO, current version).
Students who started Latin in Germany in grade 5 or in grade 6 and transfer to the German International School Washington D.C. in grade 7 , 8 , 9 or 10 will be taught in a separate Latin course (Latin 2).
