German term or phrase: Aufbaureform
oops.. it should actually read "Aufbaureform": start over:
Zeugnis des beruflichen Gymnasiums der dreijaehrigen Aufbaureform
Johanna
English translation:continuing or extended secondary education
Explanation:
Should this be Aufbauform ? (not Aufbaureform?) -- A Google search on Aufbaureform didn't yield a single hit. However, I did find the following:

Als dreijähriges Gymnasium der Aufbauform vermittelt das berufliche Gymnasium jungen Menschen eine vertiefte Allgemeinbildung und bereitet sie gleichzeitig optimal auf den Eintritt in das Berufsleben vor. Dieser umfassende Bildungsauftrag hat sich in den zurückliegenden 25 Jahren seit dem ersten Abitur weniger im Inhalt als vielmehr in der Form geändert: Im Jahre 1978 brachte die Oberstufenreform auch am hiesigen Wirtschaftsgymnasium einschneidende Veränderungen, die letztlich dazu führten, daß die Abiturienten dieses Schultyps eine in allen Bundesländern anerkannte Hochschulreife erwerben konnten.

Langenscheidt suggests "continuing education" in the context of Aufbau...,
"Extended education" also came to mind, but since it is a secondary school, it should be:
extended secondary education or
continuing secondary school

I did find “extended secondary education” in: http://www.und.edu/ehddeansearch/members.html
and also in this CV that was very obviously translated from German into English:
http://www.fms.uni-rostock.de/ifk/wicklein/privaten.htm

There is quite a number of sites, mostly Australian, for “continuing secondary education” http://www.qbssss.edu.au/Assessment/ExternalExaminations.htm...
home.vicnet.net.au/~huffpuff/education.htm
wwwplan.murdoch.edu.au/stats/gds/default.asp

So it seems to me you might be able to use either term. Maybe not quite as elegant as you'd like, but maybe you can think of something a little more elegant, based on these terms and URLs. HTH!
