The Rupprecht-Gymnasium ( "RGM" for short for Rupprecht-Gymnasium Munich ) is a science, technology and language high school in Munich . The school, located in the Neuhausen-Nymphenburg district , was founded in 1911 as the “royal Rupprecht-Kreisrealschule” and has been called the “Rupprecht-Gymnasium” since 1964. It is state sponsored.


The Rupprecht-Gymnasium is located at Albrechtstrasse 7 near Rotkreuzplatz in the Neuhausen district. The Alfonsschule and the municipal Adolf-Weber-Gymnasium in Munich are adjacent to the grammar school .


The Rupprecht-Gymnasium is named after the last Bavarian Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria . In 1899 the desire arose for a new secondary school in the west of Munich, in 1907 the construction was decided by the district administrator of Upper Bavaria . Classes began on September 25, 1911 with 344 students. In 1921 there was a survey of the nine-class Kreisoberrealschule , the previous name for a grammar school without Latin , in 1926 the school was taken over by the state and was named "Staatliche Rupprecht-Oberrealschule".

Originally the north wing had four floors and the southwest wing two floors, in 1934 a third floor was added due to the rapidly growing number of students and a second gymnasium was built on top of the first.

During the Second World War the school was almost completely destroyed, but was completely rebuilt by 1950.

New building with cafeteria

In 1964 the school got its current name "Rupprecht-Gymnasium". In the same year, the new building on the other side of the street was inaugurated, which is connected to the old building by a bridge. The modern language branch was added in the same year. At the beginning of the 2007/2008 school year, the cafeteria attached to the new building was put into operation. In addition to the two-storey dining rooms, it offers space for a further three classrooms and the communication room. In addition, the school's first elevator was installed, which can be used via the new building and the cafeteria.

The facade of the building is listed .


The Rupprecht-Gymnasium has over 1,100 students and around 90 full-time teachers. Due to insufficient room capacity, all rooms function as classrooms, including the college level room and the communication room in the cafeteria building.

Like all high schools in Bavaria, the school switched from the G9 to the G8 .


Country home

Since July 7, 1932, the Rupprecht-Gymnasium has had its own school camp in Holzhausen , a district of Straßlach-Dingharting in the Munich district . It is one of the oldest country homes in Germany.


The school has three computer rooms. Every member of the school receives their own user account . The school also has a carpenter's shop , an atelier , a school library in the basement of the old building and a student laboratory in the basement of the new building.

As part of the Italian section, which, in addition to teaching Italian as a third foreign language, also provides bilingual history and geography lessons , an Italian high school teacher from Sicily teaches at the Rupprecht high school.
