The school emerged from the division of the Gymnasium illustrious , which was founded in 1686 and which had become too cramped, in 1881 . In addition to the Karls-Gymnasium, the Eberhard-Ludwigs-Gymnasium was created .
In 1885 the school was able to move from the temporarily used rooms in the " Polytechnikum " in the lower Koenigstrasse and the "Mäntlerschen Haus" in the Stiftstrasse to the school building in the Italian Renaissance style in the Tübinger Strasse. The building was constructed from 1883 to 1885 by the architect Adolf Wolff . Rooms for science, drawing and music as well as a gym are located here. The new ballroom is praised as a highlight. The school building is still in use, only the gym had to make way for a new building, which was inaugurated in 2007. In order to have more space, three floors were also rented in a residential and commercial building on Furtbachstrasse, i.e. in the immediate vicinity of the school building. These rooms are mainly used for teaching the upper level.
The Karls-Gymnasium has a linguistic-humanistic profile. The language sequence is Latin and English from grade 5 and ancient Greek or French from grade 8. Study groups in Hebrew , French and Spanish are also offered. A European Gymnasium degree is possible. From the age group that came to the KG in summer 2015, it is also possible to choose NWT in addition to French and Ancient Greek.
Another specialty of the school is the project-oriented subject "Man and Nature". The developed for this purpose in the school curriculum combines liberal arts with science topics and each of two teachers in the context of teaching group lessons ( team teaching ) taught.

The association of friends and sponsors of the Karls-Gymnasium e. V. was founded in 1949 by the then headmaster Ulrich Weizsäcker. The aims of the association are to maintain the relationships between alumni and to their old school, to finance special activities, aids, equipment, etc., and to provide grants to students, especially for excursions and trips.
