The approach taken by our private school is predicated on the binding educational standards of the State of Hesse.

The Erasmus Gymnasium is a state-licenced alternative school pursuant to the Hessian Schooling Act and is also a G9 Gymnasium – a nine-year secondary school which offers a programme culminating in the Abitur examination. State accreditation of the private school and the diplomas offered by it is being sought. However, we have our own areas of focus, such as the acquisition of professional, communications, social and methodological skills and media literacy. A Gymnasium in Frankfurt bearing the name "Erasmus" represents a continuation of the proven and successful work of our private primary school. Naturally, our secondary school also focuses on a trilingual, all-day approach to learning in keeping with our progressive philosophy of holistic, open learning which engages all of the senses.

After year 10, our pupils can obtain the Realschule school-leaving certificate and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). After year 12 at the Erasmus Gymnasium, they can sit for exams to earn a certificate granting entrance to a technical university (Fachhochschulreife). Once the final three years are complete, pupils are eligible to sit for the Abitur exams. In addition, pupils of the Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule can prepare for the Cambridge English for Schools, Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE), Cambridge BEC (Business English Certificate) and DELE (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) exams.

The Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule actively promotes democratic principles.

These come to the forefront when developing rules of conduct which apply to everyone, in group work with pupils, when deciding on matters which affect everyone and when in contact with other cultures and nations. In addition, pupils are required to wear our school uniform. Moreover, as parents you will be directly involved in the school's day-to-day activities! This is because we place the highest value on partnership between pupils, parents and educators – and this is only possible in a spirit of collaboration and open dialogue.

Our language approach: We use a successful immersion model.

The three languages spoken at our school – German, English and Spanish – are an ever-present part of our day-to-day school routine. They form the foundation of the Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule's international character and diversity. From the 5th year onwards, lessons are taught in equal measure in both English and Spanish. We of course continue to apply the immersion method at the Erasmus Gymnasium – it is a method which we have been successfully using at our primary school for many years now.

Lessons in German, English and Spanish: There’s nothing foreign about teaching in foreign languages.

This means that as a rule our native-speaking faculty communicate with pupils exclusively in one of the three school languages. Beginning in the fifth year, we not only offer foreign language lessons, but also teach certain subjects in those languages: for instance, biology, geography, civics and economics are taught in English and art, music and sport are taught in Spanish. Afternoon activities also revolve around "language acquisition". For instance, we offer a variety of language workshops and other extracurricular activities held in the pupils' foreign languages. Our school and class exchanges with English- and Spanish-speaking countries are also an incredibly exciting way to promote language learning. Class trips abroad are thus nothing new for upper-level Erasmus pupils.

The three languages spoken at our school – German, English and Spanish – are an ever-present part of our day-to-day school routine.


The Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule offers a stable, transparent and attractive tuition and fee structure.

Pupils must be eligible to attend a Gymnasium before being accepted to year five at the Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule. Eligibility is demonstrated by certificates obtained after the third year and at half-term of the fourth year.

While the Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule places a great deal of importance on such measurable results, it is just as valuable for us to know that we can offer a spirit of partnership and community. We want to make our school accessible to as many parents as possible – by offering a tuition and fee structure which is attractive in the Frankfurt region and which covers all of the services which our private school offers.
