There are 50 students in DBHO 1 (16-17 year old teenagers) and 60 students in DBHO 2 (17-18 year old teenagers). These two school years aim is to prepare the entry exam for University or for Vocational Training.

When students finish DBHO can attend this Vocational Training in our school or can apply for another Vocational training in a different school or enter University after passing the University entrance exam. That is why people who are over 18 can attend this Nursery course in our school. To get the degree of Nursery studies, students have to do a two- year course and afterwards training in a specific school for kids like a kindergarten. There are two courses and 25 students in each course this year.
