The Louisenlund Foundation is a state recognised grammar school for approximately 440 boys and girls. For the last 65 years Louisenlund has stood for a harmonious combination of school and free time. Louisenlund students graduate after 8 years. Louisenlund does not only mean the chance to learn a large variety of foreign languages, to enjoy bilingual teaching, experience internationalism and the chance to see individualism as a great opportunity; it is much more. In September 2015 Louisenlund opened its doors, for the first time, to children in Year 1 with the introduction of its own primary school, thus enabling students from the local area to enjoy an uninterrupted education in one establishment. Education at Louisenlund is founded on a passionate vision, without losing sight of the aim to achieve high academic standards. Our mission is to nurture our students towards an optimal shaping of their future. The focus is on the individual. As well as acquiring skills, standards and qualifications, the central aim remains the holistic education of young people. The spiritual and educational basis of our work at Louisenlund lies in the ideas of the reform educator Kurt Hahn. All members of staff respect their students and have the interests of the individual at heart; relationships, community spirit, esteem and attitude are what counts. Accordingly, an education at Louisenlund means holistic development of personality, personal drive, humanitarianism and a sense of social responsibility. Living together on campus and in the boarding houses is an important part of an education at Louisenlund. Such bodies as the school parliament or participation in global projects, such as the Model United Nations, give our students the opportunity to experience Successful start to the future democracy at first hand. In the Politics Society and the Debating Society they have the chance to form opinions and express them constructively. We also place great importance on cultural activities such as Art, Music and Drama. Individual strengths and talents also come to the fore and are developed through a wide variety of sporting activities and the opportunity to engage in service, within school and the local region. As well as the German Abitur students at Louisenlund have the possibility to follow a course of study in English, leading to the globally recognized International Baccaureate (introduced at Louisenlund in 2008), also known as IB Diploma. Examining bodies in both Abitur and IB aim to nurture students to become inquisitive eager learners who will be able to face the economic, ecologic, social and political challenges of tomorrow. Thus, with their knowledge and conscientiousness they will be in a position to work together to shape a peaceful world in the future. High regard for one another and a culture of recognition are qualities firmly anchored in our educational philosophy. Therefore, we consider end of term or end of year reports to be more than just grades and teachers’ comments. On graduating, students receive a certificate which documents aspects leading to the development of character and personality. Throughout their school career they receive regular feedback in the form of a report acknowledging their efforts in extra-curricular activities and social areas. Particular emphasis is placed on responsibility for others. Achievement and success is praised without denouncing weaknesses. Thus, “Lunder” become strong personalities.
