The elementary and middle school at Stuntzstraße 55 is the only school in Parkstadt Bogenhausen in Munich . It is located on Stuntzstraße and is separated from Gotthelfstraße in the east by a row of houses. In the west it borders on the after-school care center and in the north on a kindergarten.


The school, built according to plans by the architect Franz Ruf , was opened after twelve months of construction on March 25, 1957 with an inauguration ceremony. After the first school building had become too small, the second building, closer to the street, was opened in 1961. At the same time, the school received a gym with a gym and a swimming pool. A pavilion later expanded the teaching area, which was demolished before 1988.

In the 1969/70 school year, elementary and secondary schools were organizationally separated. Since then, the primary school has been housed in the first building and the secondary school in the extension.

The primary school was renovated in 1996. In 2007 the school celebrated its 50th anniversary. On the occasion of this anniversary, the Funding Association for Primary Schools on Stuntzstraße e. V. founded.

All-day classes have been introduced in the Hauptschule since the 2008/09 school year. For the 2011/12 school year, the Hauptschule was renamed the Mittelschule at Stuntzstraße 55 .

In Kenya, the primary school has a partner school.


The two school buildings have a square floor plan and each have an equally square inner courtyard. They show the simple architecture of the 1950s that runs through the entire Parkstadt. The current primary school building consists only of the ground floor, while the extension building has another floor. The gym is the third building on the school grounds. The three buildings are connected by covered corridors. There is a playground between the gymnasium and the primary school building, to which the sports area adjoins in the north. A pavilion was demolished because it was in a state of disrepair; the school garden is now in its place.

The school buildings are under the ensemble protection of Parkstadt Bogenhausen and are an integral part of the overall planning of the newly created estate - the first large residential complex in Bavaria built after the Second World War.

Today's primary school building was planned by the architect Franz Ruf , who also did the overall planning for Parkstadt.

Johannes Ludwig , who together with Franz Ruf also designed residential buildings in Parkstadt, was responsible for the extension that now houses the secondary school.

Student numbers

The number of pupils at the school very clearly reflects the demographic change in Parkstadt Bogenhausen and thus also the development of satellite towns . While in the first few years a lot of young families moved into the newly created living space - and correspondingly many students attended school - the population in the catchment area was aging and the number of students was falling. At times, because of the high number of students, teaching had to be carried out in several shifts. In the meantime, the number of pupils has stabilized - not least due to a change in the school district in 2010. In this context, the school is also to be converted from a two-course system to a three-course system.
