In 2003 the branch of the grammar school was separated as an independent Landgraf Ludwigs grammar school.

The Landgraf-Ludwigs-Gymnasium was the only school in Giessen to offer Latin as the first foreign language and entry profile until 2017 . Due to the decreasing number of students in the profile, it has been replaced by the entry profile Music . Ancient Greek and Russian were also taught until the 1990s .

The historically significant documents of the Landgraf-Ludwigs-Gymnasium Gießen are in the Hessisches Staatsarchiv Darmstadt (holdings G 53 LGG Giessen). The oldest documents date back to the early 18th century, including a directory of educators and teachers from 1728. The inventory includes documents on school administration and teaching organization, everyday school life and the student body. The inventory includes, among other things, the programs for the annual celebrations from 1843 onwards, as well as a number of examination papers by trainee lawyers, which provide insights into the training of trainee teachers from the end of the 19th century through to the era of National Socialism. The inventory has been developed and most of it can be researched on the Internet.
The Epistula is a school-run, annual magazine for graduates. In addition to school information, the careers of former students are also shown to a limited extent. The school maintains an address register of alumni on a voluntary basis.
For several decades, the LLG has been extremely successful in the Federal President's history competition . In almost all tenders since German reunification, the school came second in the history competition in Germany. For example, high school students won first, second and third federal awards several times.
In addition, pupils at Jugend forscht won several regional victories and in 2013 the Hessian state special award for environmental technology. So far, two Hessian state winners came from the LLG at the youth debates . The school and its pupils also regularly win prizes in the “Youth and Business” competitions and in the Latin competitions.
