They are in a process of inproving conditions to the present millennium. In older parts of the school the teenagers still live together in rooms with two or four teenagers and only a washbasin in the room. Toilet and bathroom are shared for the dorm.

Lately they have renovated the building and added new facilities so the teenagers have bathroom and toilet in each room. There is no information whether the number of teenager in each room have been reduced.


There is access to a inhouse fitness center. The also have workshops.

In the news

September 2007 two rather well-equipped boys were convicted of hitting two girls on their head with their penises. Two other boys were acquitted after some measurement in the court [2]. The girls left the school after the incident which took place during a private party.

March 2008 the management stated that they had been forced to fire a teacher, who had been taken some liberties regarding his conduct against female students beside being drunk [3].
