We are ‘Robert-Schumann-Schule’, a secondary school in Leipzig, Germany. More than 600 students attend the school, which was originally founded in 1905. Since then, a lot has changed but we still value music and the arts.

That is why we are able to provide a thorough musical and artistic education:

Thanks to a cooperation with the music school ‘Johann Sebastian Bach’ students in years 5 and 6 are able to learn a wind instrument such as the trumpet or the saxophone. Additionally, lessons in learning the guitar or the piano are offered. Singers have the opportunity to join one of our two choirs, depending on their age group.

Moreover, we are one of the few schools in Saxony to offer students advanced Arts classes in years 11 and 12. For anyone who prefers languages and sciences it is also possible to take an advanced German, Mathematics, History, English, Biology, Chemistry or Physics class.

Even before entering secondary 2 (years 11 to 12) there are a number of options to choose from. In addition to English as the mandatory first foreign language, pupils learn French, Latin or Spanish.

Furthermore, in year 8 you get to take a special combination of subjects suiting your interests like drama and arts, sciences as well as history and society.

Since cultural exchange is important in our globalized world, student exchanges play a big role at RSG. We have been accredited by Erasmus and have already established partnerships with schools in France (Paris), Czechia (Neratovice) and Spain (Teruel).

Of course, education is not the only thing that is valued here. Sporty extracurriculars like handball, table tennis, volleyball and floorball resulting in numerous awards and prizes are a big part of after-school life.

We encourage partnerships between younger and older classes and help them to form bonds.

If you liked what you have just read: Here is good news for you! You can come and see for yourself on our annual open school day, at Christmas and spring concerts, arts exhibitions and our summer festivals. There you can talk to students and teachers to find out even more about everyday life at RSG.
