The Dresden-Plauen grammar school ( GDP ) is one of the largest grammar schools in Dresden with almost 900 students . It is located in the south of the Saxon state capital. The main building is on Kantstrasse in the Plauen district . The result of a teacher training college founded in 1896, the school has had its current name since 1992.
Architecture and equipment
The property on Kantstrasse at the corner of Coschützer Strasse was initially 18,000 m². Today it occupies a total of 26,802 m². The site is on the slope of the Elbe valley with a height difference of 18 meters. Kantstrasse has a height of and the new sports field above is at . The area is cut through by two farm roads. The first leads from Coschützer Straße south past the main building and then at a right angle on the west wing to Kantstraße. The second, further south, runs from Coschützer Strasse directly to the new sports hall. The school grounds have a lot of green space and trees with many old trees. The facilities include a small open-air stage , several table tennis tables, a stone fountain and plenty of seating.
Main building on Kantstrasse
The listed, 95 m long, four-storey main building with the teaching rooms is a representative three-wing complex with an E-shaped floor plan and a gross floor area of 10,754 m² (four floors with approx. 2500 m² each). The neo-baroque building was built from 1894 to 1895 as a royal Saxon teachers' college in today's Kantstrasse 2 (at that time Seminarstrasse) based on a design by the secret building officer Edmund Waldow .
The front extends along Kantstrasse, from where a double-barreled, curved flight of stairs leads up to the main entrance of the main staircase. To the side of the mighty central riser , ten window axes each form a rear layer of the facade front . A windowless side projection closes the building front on the right and left. Four half-columns line the double-winged entrance door. On the keystone of the main entrance sits an owl as a bird of wisdom and a symbol for the goddess Athena . Above the entrance door are the three large windows of the auditorium , which extends over the first and second floors. The end of the ornate facade of the main staircase is formed by the lettering "DEUTSCHE OBERSCHULE" and a console frieze below the eaves. The attic in the form of a balustrade with applied vases covers the eaves at the central and side projection and decorates the roof edge.
The facade of the main staircase facing Kantstrasse is completely clad in sandstone . All other parts of the building have a consistent facade structure. The basement has a wall cladding made of polygonal natural stone slabs and optically forms the base of the building. The upper storeys have a facing made of yellow clinker bricks , which are structured by a band of dark red bricks . The high lattice windows on the ground floor and the first floor are also set off in color by relief arches made of dark red clinker bricks. The window frames are made of sandstone. The second floor is significantly lower than the ground floor and the first floor. Here the windows were always arranged in pairs in order to achieve the same width as on the other floors. All corners of the building are rusticated up to and including the ground floor . The basement has several exits to the schoolyard in each wing and an exit to Coschützer Straße in the east wing.
The hipped roof of the main staircase towers above all other roofs of the building and has a roof turret in the shape of a square lantern . This includes the bells and the tower clock ( radio clock ) with four dials for each side of the lantern. A tower ball forms the top and above it a weather vane with the year 1896 as a reference to the year the building was inaugurated. A special feature of the lantern roof are the curved roof tiles, which were an extra challenge during the renovation in the 1990s. The roofs of the three wing buildings are partially accessible as a platform roof . On the west wing of the main building there has been a covered bridge to the small, old gym in the south since 1906. This skyway spans the farm road on the school premises with a basket arch . The old gymnasium is designed with clinker bricks as is the main building. An octagonal tower at the gym contains a staircase that also provides access to the rooms above the gym and the transition.
The entrance door in the main staircase leads to the entrance area with its large lamps on the stair parapet. From here a wide staircase leads from the level of the basement directly to the ground floor of the main staircase. A donated signpost system helps with orientation in the building.
The stairwell is richly decorated and has a cross vault . Decorative tiles were laid on the floor. The wide staircase leads to the corridor on each floor, which leads to the east and west wings. The windows on the south side flood the corridors with light, to the north the classrooms adjoin.
The school library has been on the ground floor since May 17, 2010 and is now located next to the main entrance. 4000 books, magazines, CDs and DVDs can be borrowed there. They are listed in the school's own online catalog. At the end of the east wing there is a physics cabinet with rows of seats that rise to the rear.
On the first floor there are further classrooms and the auditorium . In addition to the leaded glass windows , the organ from Jehmlich Orgelbau Dresden in the historic auditorium is particularly worth seeing. With full seating, around 140 people can watch the performances. The biology cabinets are in the east wing.
The boarding school was originally located on the second floor under the roof with two huge dormitories . New rooms were built here in the 1960s. In addition to classrooms, the school museum and a chill room are now located here . In the teachers' library there are modern bookcases for old books as well as historical furniture. This includes a heavy oak table and 14 wooden chairs that are upholstered with green and gold fabric, the symbolic school colors.
Sports halls and sports field
There are two sports halls on the premises of the grammar school. The old gym with a play area of approx. 14 × 24 m was built as a stand-alone building south of the west wing. Since 1906, a closed passage has connected it directly to the west wing of the main building. A later sanitary area on the west side of the gymnasium was modernized in the 2000s.
Less than 50 m away from the old gym is the two-storey gym building, built in 1988, with a play area of approx. 16 × 30 m. It is a so-called type construction (probably SH 16 × 31B), as it was built in many schools in the GDR . The prefabricated building complex (support and bar construction) has the changing rooms and sanitary facilities on the second floor and a roof structure with prestressed concrete elements of the VT-fold type .
With the new construction of the sports hall, the adjacent sports field was also renewed at the same time. The sports field was also renovated in July 2004, giving it a reddish tartan surface.
The school observatory of the 39th Polytechnic High School was built in 1961 about 20 meters outside the school premises, in Bienertpark to the west . As part of the restructuring of the school system, it was attached to the Dresden-Plauen grammar school. The simple rectangular building (approx. 7 × 4 m² floor space) has a tower on the west side that supports the telescopic dome with a diameter of 4 m. The observatory equipped with a stationary Celestron - reflecting telescope and a Cassegrain telescope , more Tele mentor and a Aalen sundial (an astronomical instrument).
Branch office, house B
The fifth and sixth grades were housed in the branch office until 2011. This was located in a part of the building of the nearby 39th elementary school on Schleiermacherstraße. Due to security deficiencies at the branch, all classes were then accommodated in the main building. The building was demolished in 2016 for an extension to the primary school.
Renovation from autumn 2018
The school building in today's "E" design is to be renovated and expanded to an "8" with additional buildings. Construction began in the summer vacation of 2018 and completion is planned with a six-month delay in February 2021. School operations were outsourced to the alternative location on the Terrassenufer . The city of Dresden erected an additional building made of containers at the site to accommodate all class trains of a high school.
The more than 100-year history of the school goes back to the royal Saxon teachers' seminar . The teachers' seminar was a training facility for prospective primary school teachers . The prospective teachers were called seminarians. As part of their training, they taught the students in the practice school.
The steadily increasing number of pupils in elementary schools in the second half of the 19th century meant that the existing teacher’s seminars reached their capacity limits and sufficient teachers could no longer be trained. This prompted the government in the Saxon state parliament to set up further teacher seminars. Cities could apply by means of a tender . Since a teachers' seminar had many positive effects, every new location was fought for. The cities promised new jobs and an upswing for social and scientific life. Thus, between 1869 and 1896, eight new teacher seminars were created in the Saxon region alone. For almost all new buildings, a new street was laid out in the respective location, which was called "Seminarstraße". In particular, the buildings of the teachers' seminars in Rochlitz from 1895 (today Johann-Mathesius-Gymnasium) and in Plauen im Vogtland from 1899 (today police headquarters) are very similar in structure, floor plan and facade to the building in Dresden-Plauen.
The teachers' seminar in Plauen near Dresden was founded as a subsidiary of the Friedrichstadt seminar. The new building was built from 1894 to 1895 on Seminarstrasse in Plauen.
On April 18, 1896, the training center for teachers with boarding school was officially opened. It was the first teachers' seminar in a Saxon village, the former village of Plauen near Dresden. Present were Minister of State Paul von Seydewitz , school councilor Pohle from the Friedrichstadt seminar , seminar director Grüllich from the Fletcher seminar , senior government councilor Steglich from the ministry of culture and pastor Liebe from the Church of the Resurrection .
“The property has an area of 18,000 m². The building itself covers an area of 2500 m² with a main front length of 95 m. The municipality of Plauen took over half of the cost of the square from its own funds (44,000 marks). The construction costs amounted to 753,000 marks. The top floor contained large dormitories with 175 beds. Classes opened with 16 teachers and 178 students. In 1906 the gym building was raised by one floor and the covered corridor to the main building was vaulted. The seminar included a practice school, which was initially 4-class, later 6-class and lastly taught 135 students. "
Floor plan of the upper floor around 1897 (including the director's apartment, cashier room , library, drawing room, study and living room of the seminarians)
On January 1, 1903, Plauen was incorporated into Dresden. Since the Seminarstraße had already existed in Dresden-Friedrichstadt since 1840, the Seminarstraße in Plauen was renamed Kantstraße in 1904.
German high school
In 1922 the teachers' college was converted into a grammar school. From now on the school was called " Deutsche Oberschule Dresden-Plauen" and was also run as the 22nd elementary school . In 1931 at the latest, the name changed to "State High School for Boys Dresden-Plauen"
The last seminarians were released at Easter 1928. The boarding school was closed at Easter 1937. In 1940, 53 teachers taught the 858 students at the school. As a contemporary witness, Professor Steffen R. Doerstling demonstrated in 2011 that around 30 percent of them were girls and that the students wore student hats in the school colors green and gold. The parents of the students had to contribute financially to the training with 20 Reichsmarks per month. Classes ran from Monday to Saturday. The school's own band played on special occasions . From 1943 onwards, all celebrations (dances, stair festivals) were kept to a minimum. The list of fallen former students grew longer. Some students were trained to be anti-aircraft helpers , others had to keep a fire watch in the school building at night . Numerous students passed a secondary school diploma .
The building survived World War II , but an aerial mine destroyed parts of the west wing in February 1945. The repaired parts of the facade can still be seen from Kantstrasse. The auditorium was used as a warehouse for valuables that had been recovered from destroyed houses after the air raid or found among victims of the bombing. This camp existed until May 1945, but was then looted by the Red Army and disbanded a little later. In the last weeks of the war the school was completely closed. From July 1, 1945 to February 1947, the Dresden Kreuzchor was housed in the basement of the building, as the Kreuzschule no longer existed after the air raids on Dresden and the Kreuzkirche was unusable. The boarding school of the Kreuzschule was housed on the upper floor. The right wing was rebuilt in the second half of 1946.
Secondary school Dresden-Süd
In 1947 the school was renamed "Oberschule Dresden-Süd ". Two years later, 9th grades were accepted for the first time. In the post-war period, the auditorium also served as a cinema for a number of years - under the name “Filmtheater Kantstrasse”. Due to a lack of coal, the auditorium could not be heated for years after the war, which is why the organ was in danger due to the poor indoor climate and it was professionally dismantled by Jehmlich Orgelbau Dresden with precise documentation. It was not until November 2000 that a Jehmlich organ could be installed again in the auditorium through a donation from the previous owner.
Advanced high school
The extended high school (EOS) replaced the previous high school with the law on the socialist development of the school system in the German Democratic Republic of December 2, 1959. Thus, around 1960/61, the school was renamed "Extended Upper School Dresden-Süd". Between August 1976 and July 1977 the suffix “ Friedrich Engels ” was introduced.
As part of the national structure (voluntary unpaid work in the first years of the GDR), a school observatory was built right next to the school in Bienertpark . It was designed by Herrmann Risse, the head of school astronomy . From 1960 to 1961 teachers, parents and students built the observatory as a joint effort. To this end, 8,000 bricks were recovered from the ruins of the city, cleaned and loaded. The first groundbreaking took place on April 26, 1960; the inauguration took place on December 16, 1961.
From 1964 to 1991, the municipal vocational school III (today vocational school for agriculture and nutrition ) was housed on the upper floor of the school building . Apprentices in the milk and beverages departments (brewers, maltsters, etc.) and, from the 1980s, butcher and baker apprentices also learned and lived here. At first, attempts were made to separate the schools spatially by means of a wall in the stairwell. Lightweight concrete walls divided the 60 to 80 m² rooms, which had served the seminarians as bedrooms and living rooms, into about 20 m² rooms. A new transformer station was also built. The clogged underground pipe network in the courtyard was renewed, and both courtyards were concreted with the help of the motorway construction combine. Then the vibrating floor of the old gymnasium was renewed and a new sanitary area was added to the hall. For this purpose, the rock in front of it had to be blown up first. The sports field was then drained again and relocated. Since the capacities for both schools were no longer sufficient for physical education, the new gymnasium was built in the school park in 1988.
During the GDR era, the students at the Polytechnic Oberschule received a delegation for the Abitur level. This could z. B. can also be withdrawn if an exit application is submitted . The documentary "Stasi in the schoolyard" (WDR / MDR) from 2012 by Annette Baumeister tells the story of students who the State Security contacted, put under pressure and finally forced to work. One case in the documentation occurred at what was then EOS “Friedrich Engels”.
From 1968 to 1973, students from EOS Dresden-Süd successfully took part in the International Mathematical Olympiad several times .
In the mid-1980s, the extended secondary schools in the GDR were reduced to the 11th and 12th grades.
High school in Dresden-Plauen
After the reunification , the Lord Mayor Herbert Wagner approved in a letter dated January 30, 1991 the establishment of the Dresden-Plauen grammar school. When the vocational school classes moved out in 1992, additional rooms on the top floor could be used as classrooms. In 1992 the school was officially renamed “Gymnasium Dresden-Plauen”. From 1992 the classes were taught in the course system . In addition, since the school year 1992/1993, grades 5 to 12 have been taught in the grammar school for the first time.
The school was partially renovated in the 1990s. Sun shines the auditorium to its former glory and even has another original Jehmlich - Organ receive, as already from 1896 to 1955. Also the main entrance with its numerous ornaments was renewed. All windows were modernized and the entire east wing renovated. In addition, the entire school yard was redesigned. It now consists of several green areas and is equipped with table tennis tables , a stone fountain and numerous seating areas. Around the year 2000 the old boiler house in the school yard was completely demolished.
In July 2004, further work on the outdoor area was completed. In the nine months before, the terrain profile was re-modeled, planting carried out, new paths created and the sports field covered with tartan. As part of the “ Substitute Hour ” series for the free youth magazine Spiesser from Dresden, Sportfreunde Stiller gave a sports lesson with 17 high school students on the new sports field in June 2006.
There was already a library when the teachers' college opened in 1896, but it was later closed. Starting in November 2008, work was carried out to build up a new school library. This facility was opened on May 17, 2010. In January 2013 there was a water damage in the school library, which allowed only limited operation until April.
On February 28, 2011, the branch in Schleiermacherstraße had to be closed. The Unfallkasse Sachsen triggered the closure because the only escape route leads through a non-smoke-protected staircase . The 129 pupils of the 5th grade therefore had to move immediately to the main building on Kantstrasse.
Also in 2011 the 60th anniversary of the inauguration of the school observatory was celebrated with a week of festivities.
During an action by the student council on April 10, 2014, numerous schoolchildren symbolically held their school together for 20 minutes with a human chain around their school. The campaign is intended to draw attention to the years of renovation backlog in the historic building. In September 2014, a high level of Legionella contamination in the school's water system became known, which was not unusual after the six-week summer vacation.
Today, from the 8th grade onwards, the natural science, social science and linguistic profile (French, since 2015/16 also Spanish) are offered. Language lessons are in English and from the 6th grade onwards in French , Russian or Latin .

After the turning point and the peaceful revolution in the GDR , the school newspaper “Der Zahnpocher” was founded in autumn 1990. With a competition in early 1991, the new name "Plauensche Spitzen" was found and the newspaper was renamed. The name of the monthly booklet is based on the world-wide protected brand Plauener Spitze . In 2009 the school newspaper was renamed “Plaunertasche” based on the word “Plaudertasche”. Since 2011 the school newspaper has been called “Kant (I)”. The name connects Immanuel Kant and the pronoun I to the adjective "angular". The magazine is currently published in A4 format and every two months. The 2017 school newspaper was called “Die MarKANTe”.
Many traditional events have been taking place for several years and sometimes even for several decades:
- Festival of Cultures
- Gingerbread tournament: volleyball tournament in the Advent season with the traditional goal of the student teams to beat the teaching team; a dodgeball tournament in the 5th and 6th grades.
- FÄBI: interdisciplinary lessons, each year the last five school days before Christmas, a different topic in each grade
- School sports festival
- School festival: takes place every two years
- Kniggetag: All students and teachers come to school in a festive cloakroom. In the evening there is a dance ball in the auditorium.
- MuLi: musical-literary evening
- Since the 2009/2010 school year there has also been a theater week in which the students practice various pieces or recite ballads
- School triathlon: School championships of the Dresden schools in the Cossebaude reservoir
- 100 km duathlon and 20 km student duathlon : The 100 km team duathlon has been held every year at the gymnasium at the beginning of May since 1996 on the occasion of the school's 100th anniversary. The teams circle the city of Dresden on a 100 km route. Since 2001 there has been the 20 km student duathlon for students under the age of 16. Since 2003 the grammar school and the VfA endLOS Dresden e. V. from the team duathlon together. The 100 km duathlon around Dresden is the oldest team duathlon in Germany. A special challenge for the student teams is traditionally to beat the team of teachers.
- Waste paper collections: three times a year, traditionally the ninth grades supervise the campaign. Each class tries to collect the greatest amount of waste paper.
The Dresden-Plauen grammar school has had a school partnership with the Isolde-Kurz -Gymnasium (IKG) in Reutlingen (Baden-Württemberg) since 1990 . It came about through the teacher Dietmar Herrmann in Reutlingen. From 1951 to 1955 he himself was a student in Dresden-Plauen and organized a trip for his colleagues to Dresden in the spring of 1990 after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Today, student, choir and orchestra exchanges are organized.
On February 2, 1993, the friends' association was founded with the name “Association of Friends and Sponsors of the Dresden-Plauen Gymnasium”. V. “The 491 members (as of October 2014) of the association provided the high school with a new organ, a media room, a reading café as well as chandeliers and chairs for the renovated auditorium through donations for various projects. Honorary member of the association was Eva-Maria Gudehus-Peschke (* 1928, † 2020), a former student, teacher of the grammar school and long-time chairwoman of the association. The Friends' Association is the publisher of the annual report , a school yearbook that has been following an old tradition since 1992. Annual reports have been issued since the school was founded in 1896 until at least 1943. In 2011, the Friends' Association organized the new edition of a school ring , as was the custom at the school 80 and more years ago. The current chairman of the association is the former student Ulrike Simon, who taught at the school until 2006.
