The Kreuzlingen Cantonal School (KSK) was founded in 1969. It is run by the canton of Thurgau. The KSK is a classical, general education grammar school. It offers an additional focus on the natural sciences.
The KSK guarantees a broad general education. This also includes working and learning methods, social competence, critical and argumentation skills. In addition to the general education subjects, all pupils choose a three-year focus subject and a two-year supplementary subject, thus giving their education an individual touch.
In addition to the normal lessons, there are three special weeks per year, including a science research week, a technology week and a 14-day language course in England and in France. Since 2006, the cantonal school has also run a bilingual class, in which all non-language subjects are taught in English during the last three school years.
Since 2014, the KSK has also run a MINT (mathematics, information technology, natural sciences, technology) class. This is aimed at young people who would like more lessons in STEM subjects with a slightly reduced number of lessons in language subjects, geography and history. In addition, this class conducts external internships at ETH Zurich and the University of Konstanz. The MINT class also concludes with a Matura, which enables general university access.
