Information in English
Gymnasium Saarburg is located in the border region of Germany, France and Luxemburg. Currently we have about 1,100 students who are taught by approximately 90 teachers. Our school offers classrooms with access to WiFi and several rooms with special equipment, for example for science or geography classes.
Sports classes take place in our gym or our own indoor swimming pool. Furthermore the school offers class sets of iPads which can be used in all lessons. There is also a library for reading and studying purposes.
We are one of only eight schools in Rhineland-Palatinate which offers French bilingual teaching that enables students to get the Abibac, the German Abitur and the French baccalauréat. Moreover, our school is strong in sciences as well – we are Mint Excellence Center and as such offer a wide range of possibilities to discover science.
Exchange programs with our French neighbors are an important part of our profile. Students travel to Castres, St. Martin-en-Haut or Charleville-Mézières. There is also an exchange to Marlow, Great Britain, a trip to Barcelona and one to Rome for the students taking the respective foreign language. The exchange to Israel offered to years 10 and 11 is definitely one of the highlights.
We support individual exchanges to France (Brigitte Sauvigny, Romain Rolland etc.) and to the world, which challenge and promote the social and foreign language development of the young people.
Working together with students and parents alike means a lot to us. Feel welcome to contact us should you have questions.
See you on our “Tag der offenen Tür” (open-door day), where we offer a wide variety of information, entertainment and insight into our school!
