Preserving values, taking responsibility, shaping the future - Louisenlund, the only IB boarding school in northern Germany, impresses with its beautiful surroundings, a thoroughly international character and education of the highest quality. Located on the Schlei, the school is committed to forming open-minded and responsible citizens.
Louisenlund seeks to develop personalities and promote talents. Practical, proactive and experiential learning enables students to actively acquire and develop knowledge and achieve their individual educational objectives. Students become main actors in their own learning process and learn to be accountable for their own academic process. Each student is accompanied by a faculty mentor, who acts as an academic advisor, helping students to reach their full potential. Committed to the IB Learner Profile, Louisenlund aims for students' best academic performance, fosters a sense of community, companionship and consideration for others, and a willingness to take responsibility.
Since its establishment in 1949, Stiftung Louisenlund stands for a first-class education with high standards for academic achievement and character development. Louisenlund offers young people the opportunity to choose between the German Abitur and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, two widely recognised qualifications. In addition, Louisenlund offers the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) with two grades, Year 4 and Year 5 (candidate school for the MYP). The MYP is the optimal preparatory programme for students who wish to pursue the IB Diploma, improve their English language skills and expand their horizons. 480 students, including about 60 from abroad, currently attend the half-day primary school and the grammar school 'Gymnasium' (German secondary school) or the IB Diploma Programme. Nearly 310 students are residents of our boarding community, which impresses with its relaxed and familial atmosphere. Because of the large number of Anglophone teachers, various native speakers teach their own language (English, Spanish and Chinese) and our membership in the esteemed Round Square network, Louisenlund enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide.
Another important feature is the exceptionally good relationship between students and staff, which results from the small learning groups. Particular talents and interests can be specifically fostered.
Besides the educational opportunities and the broad range of extracurricular activities, life at Louisenlund is a time to remember for other reasons: local and international projects, linguistic and cultural diversity on campus, lifelong friendships and the exceptional team spirit of our community.
