Welcome to our school
We are a grammar school with approximately 1000 pupils aged 10-20. Many of our students have an immigration background with roots in about 50 different countries. As our school motto says: “Verschieden sind wir stark“ - diversity makes us stronger and more tolerant.
Our school is located in the southeast of Munich, part of scenic Bavaria. Although we are only 10 minutes away from central Munich, we are surrounded by green spaces and on clear days you can even see the Alps from here.

Munich’s Special Way
As the city of Munich has its own municipal schools, there are some differences in contrast to state-run schools. Thus Munich’s grammar schools offer two parallel ways of education: in normal (from 8.00 to 13.10 o’clock) and day classes for year 5 and 6 pupils (from 8.00 to 16.00 o’clock).
Normal classes only have exceptional lessons in the afternoon and pupils can choose from an extensive offer of extracurricular activieties after the lunch break. Our day classes have a common lunch break, lessons in the afternoon and extra study time for doing their homework.
In contrast to state-run schools we offer:
An extra intensifying lesson in year 6 (small group tuition in English, German and Maths), tuition in study skills and learning techniques in year 5 and 7, a reliable system of supply teachers, our own school psychologist (counselling in class or single sessions for all kinds of students’ problems), extracurricular Activities, Sports (running, swimming, basketball, volleyball, inline skating, golf, dancing, tennis), music (different choirs according to age group, various school bands, school orchestra), additional languages (italian, spanish, turkish, others, drama group, science club, chess club).
We would be very interested to establish links with other secondary schools across Europe, especially from the UK, for long-term partnerships and exchange programmes
