The Jungmannschule in Eckernförde has long been one of the largest high schools in Schleswig-Holstein . In the 2016/17 school year, around 840 students attended the school.

The German writer Wilhelm Lehmann taught here for 24 years. In his honor there is a bust in the school building .

The Jungmannschule was founded in 1905 as a secondary school. On January 28, 1939, the school was named after the Prussian officer Eduard Julius Jungmann . For the time of National Socialism it was unusual that the namesake was not a member of the NSDAP . The street on which the school building stood was, however, called Hermann-Göring-Straße (Reeperbahn, southern section) during the Nazi era .

The tradition of being able to do a high school diploma in Eckernförde or an educational qualification comparable to today's Abitur dates back to 1566, when the then Eckernförde Latin School was founded. One of the first graduates known today was the sculptor Hans Gudewerdt the Younger between 1611 and 1618 .

During the Nazi era, the grammar school teacher Arthur Götting disappeared overnight after refusing to part with his Jewish wife. Götting was known in the city for his design for the Gefion fountain .

After the end of World War II, by order of the British military government, public buildings were not allowed to bear the names of officers (regardless of the era). A translation or interpretation error by the British Governor of Schleswig-Holstein Hugh de Crespigny meant that the Jungmann School was allowed to keep its name: there was nothing wrong with a school for young men .

The school flag designed in 1926 was in use until 1955. It is now in the school archive. The flag bears the Latin phrase mens agitat molem ( something like : the spirit moves matter ) from Virgil's epic Aeneid .

The first own school building, in which the Jungmann School was housed, was built in 1909 in the Reeperbahn . The architect was Heinrich Bomhoff . The building is now a listed building and houses the Pestalozzi School . The building is a mighty, three-story brick building in the form of homeland security architecture with a multi-part roof landscape. Among the special facade features include two adjacent high arched gable with a focus on the intersection Reeperbahn / Court Street .

Since the number of students exceeded the capacity of the school building in the Reeperbahn , the Jungmann School itself moved in 1975 to the newly built school center south on the outskirts in the new Wilhelmstal district .

A total of around 800 students are taught.

The association of friends and former students of the Jungmannschule eV has 850 members (as of 2008). Since 1951 he has published an annual report on school events, which club members receive free of charge.

An alumni meeting of students and teachers was revived in 1999 and has been taking place every year since then in the town hall restaurant in Eckernförde.

School partnerships


The outer walls of the main building of the school center south in Eckernförde, which the Jungmann School shares with the Peter Ustinov School (integrated comprehensive school with upper level) and the Gorch Fock School (which is now housed in an adjoining building), consist of plastic sheets filled with foam and connected with vertical aluminum profiles. Due to the high thermal conductivity of aluminum, these continuous profiles are good thermal bridges. In issue 01 of GEO magazine from 1982, the school building is listed in an article about thermography as an example of poor thermal insulation. The profiles stand out prominently on the thermal image.

In 2006 the school was given an insulating facade from the outside. Thus these shortcomings are no longer present. The new window system introduced in the course of this renovation, consisting of electrically opening skylights and large top-hung and bottom-hung windows that open outwards, turned out to be a faulty construction. The windows cannot be opened far enough (only 15 °) to let enough fresh air into the rooms of the building when exposed to high temperatures. Due to this problem, some of the classrooms on the south side of the school cannot be used at lunchtime in summer.

The other educational institutions in the school center south

in an outbuilding: the former Gorch Fock School
  • The then newly founded elementary and secondary school Gorch-Fock-Schule , named after Gorch Fock , moved into the main building of the school center south in 1975 together with the Jungmannschule and in 1993 into a newly constructed auxiliary building. The school had taken over part of the school district of the Albert Schweitzer School . The former principal of the school, Karl-Heinz Groth (* 1940), has also made a name for himself as a dialect writer and non-fiction author. After the merger of the Gorch Fock School with the primary school branch of the Albert Schweitzer School under the name Sprottenschule in 2017, the building at the south school center was given up.
  • The Peter-Ustinov-Schule Eckernförde , named after Peter Ustinov , has existed since 1990 and moved into the main building under its first name, Integrated Comprehensive School Eckernförde ( IGE for short ) with initially 75 students. This was preceded by conspiratorial meetings of teachers, parents from the Waldorf scene and other interested parties without the press in a half-dilapidated farmhouse in Kochendorf with the aim of founding a comprehensive school in Eckernförde from early summer 1989 . The school is supported by the Peter Ustinov Foundation . The former headmaster of the school Jürgen Anbuhl (* 1940) was a former SPD member of the Bundestag and Eckernförde mayor. In total, the school now teaches around 900 students.
  • After the Gorch Fock School had moved to the adjoining building, the kindergarten on Brennofenweg temporarily moved into the main building . After a fire, the kindergarten building had to be rebuilt.
