„Our school was founded in 2006. That makes us a young primary school, but with roots that go all the way back to 1536.“

„Exactly, Erasmus is quite old, but still very modern, the teachers say.“

It goes without saying that the Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule offers a broad and challenging curriculum.

However, what makes our unique programmes and school culture so special? Firstly, our culture reflects the ideals of our patron, the world-renowned humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam, who firmly believed that education was the key to making the world a better, more peaceful place. Secondly, our primary school was founded in 2006 through a parental initiative. It was a very conscious decision to give our pupils room to broaden their horizons through participation in extracurricular activities – which we believe is absolutely essential to their personal development.

As a private full day school, our opening times are welcoming and family friendly. Simultaneously, we are able to apply the latest neuro-biological and physiological processes of learning to our teaching approach. Applying the concept of "rhythmisation", we spread lessons evenly throughout the morning and the afternoon. This gives our pupils enough time to review and reinforce new concepts and material individually or in groups, as well as to do independent research and to unwind after phases of strenuous learning.

We also work closely with the Erasmus Kindergarten of the ASB teachers' cooperative and are now also pleased to be able to offer you our successful new trilingual, progressive educational concept for our secondary school, the Erasmus Gymnasium – click here for more information.

Our teachers work in a team and consider themselves to be educators in the true sense of the word.

Children, parents and teachers enjoy the fact that so many different cultures come together in our school. Exposure to different cultures makes children inquisitive about the world and open to new things. That is why our work culture is deeply rooted in the principle of mutual learning. We primarily work in teams. This is also reflected in the school administration, and in the team-teaching approach used in every class.

Our teachers view themselves as educators in the true sense of the word: Facilitators of knowledge, promoters of potential, guides and observers of learning and development processes, creators of an engaging learning environment and as fellow learners. This is how our pupils develop into curious, critical and open-minded children.

Our patron, the Arbeiter-Samariter‐Bund, Landesverband Hessen e.V.

The Erasmus Frankfurter Stadtschule was founded by parents, who wanted to provide children with an appropriate educational and supervisory programme in Frankfurt, with a social focus, sensible planning, clear structures, while ensuring parents and children hail from a diverse cultural spectrum.

We not only share this attitude with our sponsor, the Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund, Landesverband Hessen e.V. (ASB), we live by it. See for yourself. You can learn more about our sponsor here:


With our supporters and partners, we promote open-mindedness towards the world and real life.
