Grundschule am Schäfersee is a primary school with
three to five forms for each year.
At present there are approximately 460 pupils (boys and
girls) with 53% of them whose mother tongue is not German.
We are trying to integrate pupils in different classes with
reduced learning capacities, auditory or sight damages or
with grave behavioural deficiencies.
The building - of 1912 - has recently been modernized
extensively and offers a diversity of rooms

In the spacious schoolyard you will find apparatuses for

kids can play streetball or have fun with toys older pupils
hand out during breaks on request.
