The Schillerschule, a secondary school for girls (Lyzeum) in Frankfurt am Main, in 1908

The Schillerschule was founded in 1908 as the first girls' high school in Frankfurt under the director Klaudius Bojunga . The new building was designed by Hugo Eberhardt . At that time there were already two secondary daughter schools , the Elisabeth School and the Viktoriaschule , but these did not lead to the Abitur . In 1911 the first Abitur examination took place at the school.

During the Second World War , the school building was badly damaged in the air raids on Frankfurt am Main in 1944 and was rebuilt after the war. The current school building was built in 1959. The architects were Hanns-Alex and Käthe Harth. In 1968 the first boys were accepted and the Schillerschule thus became a mixed grammar school.

At the end of 2007 a newly built scientific wing was inaugurated. Shortly thereafter, the new school canteen and school library opened. In May 2008 the Schillerschule celebrated its 100th anniversary.
