When you sign up, you must choose an A and a B subject. These will be your 'major' subjects during your high school stay. It is possible to change your subjects along the way, for us the most important thing is that you use your team here, in the subject you are most passionate about. (However, it requires that there is a spot available in the subject you would like to switch to.) When you choose from home, it is so that we can be sure that we have a place on the teams you sign up for. In addition to the main subjects, you also have elective subjects or C and D subjects, which you choose when you get to the school.See all of our subjects
