Our grammar school offers a wide variety of activities, integrated within the school day as well as extra-curricular.

A student's entire potential is uncovered. For us proper education means there is time for individual support and a diverse array of ways to spend the freetime.

A big emphasis regarding our activities is put on the Freie Jugendkunstschule. Located on the school campus, the Freie Jugendkunstschule is a music school, whose repertoire of programmes include teaching an instrument, lessons in singing, orchestra and bands. But also courses covering topics of visual art like movie production. Those activities are not only restricted to the afternoon, either, but may also take place integrated into the regular school day, if agreed upon.
