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 to achieve their individual educational objectives. Louisenlund's students are expected to become the principle players in their learning process and to be accountable for their own academic process. Nevertheless, each student is accompanied by a faculty mentor, who acts as an academic advisor and helps students maximize their potential. Committed to the IB Learner Profile, Louisenlund not only aims for the best possible academic achievement amongst our young learners; the sense of community, companionship and consideration for others, as well as the readiness to take on responsibility are of particular importance.
Since its founding in 1949, Stiftung Louisenlund stands for a top-class education, with high standards for academic achievement and character development. We offer the possibility to choose between the German Abitur and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, two widely recognized qualifications. 440 pupils, including 66 from abroad, currently attend the half-day primary school and the full-day 'Gymnasium' (German secondary school) or the IB Diploma Programme. Nearly 325 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 a good reputation worldwide.
Another important feature is the exceptionally good relationship between students and staff, deriving from the small learning groups. Particular talents and weaknesses can be specifically fostered.
Besides the educational possibilities 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 the campus, lifelong friendships and the exceptional team spirit of our community.
