The Limmattal Cantonal School in Urdorf was opened in 1977. It offers a long and short-term high school with various profiles for students from the Affoltern and Limmattal districts.

The catchment area of ​​the KSL includes the Zurich part of the Limmattal (Schlieren, Dietikon, Birmensdorf and surrounding communities) and the Säuliamt , i.e. the Affoltern district.

The school offers the following Matura profiles: ancient language, modern language, mathematical and scientific, musical, economic and legal.


The Urdorf branch of the Zurich Cantonal School started operations as early as 1973. In 1977 the Limmattal Cantonal School was opened as an independent grammar school. Until 1986, teaching was carried out in temporary double pavilions. In 1986 it was possible to move into the new school complex in the Luberzen, in the Urdorf industrial area bordering Dietikon and Schlieren . The first rector was the German teacher Franz Germann, who was replaced in 1996 by the physics teacher Max Ziegler. Since 2009 the school has been run by the Germanist Werner De Luca. On April 15, 2014, an asteroid was named after a canton student who took second place for a computer science project at the 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair : (29881) Tschopp .

New building in 2023

According to forecasts, the canton school will grow to around 1,100 students by 2040, which would lead to a lack of space with the currently available premises. Therefore, the canton of Zurich decided to expand the school with a new building. Construction is scheduled to be completed by 2023 and will house areas for music and science, class and group rooms, two gyms and an auditorium. The building plans were drawn up by the architect Daniel Penzis Giulio Bettini from Zurich.
