A Technical Highschool
. Abbr. for "Technologisches Gewerbemuseum". Over 120 years old, originally located in an old, misused train factory. Since the nineteenseventies to be found in a "new" not-so-sky-scraper-like tower with 16 floors and completely black front (so it's really comfortable there in summer, just a bit over 34°C). Except for it's reputation, the school features nothing at all but a nice yearly ball.
Mostly filled with completely incompetent
and arrogant/ignorant we'll-do-it-by-the-book-because-I-don't-know-any-other-way "teachers
" who never underwent any form of pedagogic education or training. The few competent ones learned it the hard way that trying to educate pupils there is nothing but a waste of oxygen, chalk and human flesh and gave it up early. What's left are story-telling, arrogant pimps which tend to overestimate
their own importance
or the importance of their subject.

"I really CAN'T imagine why you are not interested in the direct current motor or fieldcoils!"
-- DI Dr Karl Sch. (in an electronics/multimedia class)
Also, most pupils are ignorant, uncapable of the english or even german language, stupid and really fucked-up pricks with no future at all. I don't consider myself an exception.
TGM equals NO FUTURE
equals SHEER TERROR
equals DEATH WISH
