The Städtische Gymnasium Steinheim is a public school in the East Westphalian town of Steinheim in the Höxter district . The grammar school was built in 1973 by the city of Steinheim. The approximately 600 students are taught by around 50 teachers.


In 1971 the decision was made to build a secondary school in Steinheim. Initially, the school building was on Friedrich-Wilhelm-Weber-Strasse. The first headmistress was Inge Hempel (1973–1990).

On March 22, 1973, at the request of the city of Steinheim, the opening of an upper level was approved and from now on the school was able to offer a complete school system. From there on, the school was allowed to call itself “Städtisches Gymnasium Steinheim” and also provide the Abitur for teaching.

In 1974 the grammar school moved into the new building on Stettiner Strasse. In 1997 the wind class was founded. The first Hungarian exchange also took place in the same year. In 2009 a cafeteria was built that is used by the grammar school and the secondary school. A third floor with a total of 14 new rooms was also built this year.

Funding programs



The partnership between the high school and the French Collège Saint-Martin in Marquise has existed for 13 years. Every spring the students from France come to Germany and live with the host families for a week. In return, the German students will travel to France in the autumn.


In order to get to know other cultures and countries, the Steinheim municipal high school organizes an annual exchange with the Kardós partner school in the city of Szigetszentmiklós in Hungary. In contrast to the French exchange, this exchange does not focus on the language, but on other cultures. The exchange with the school in Szigetszentmiklós has existed since 2004. Before 2004 there was already an exchange with Hungary (1997-2004), but not with Szigetszentmiklós, but with Csurgó , which is located in south-west Hungary.

Individual support

The students at the Städtisches Gymnasium Steinheim are additionally promoted / challenged through various support measures and challenge measures. Funding measures are z. B. "Schoolchildren support pupils" and special support lessons. Promotional measures are implemented in the form of acceleration and enrichment . At the grammar school, three hours more are taught in the lower secondary level to promote the main subjects English, mathematics and German so that the subject teachers can strengthen the students with different differentiation offers and compensate for any weaknesses. If the pupils learn a second foreign language from the sixth grade on, there is also a special lesson there with the same objective. In the sixth and ninth grades there are class trips to strengthen class cohesion beyond the lessons. There are also numerous additional offers in the form of working groups and competitions.

Working groups

One of the working groups is the student council . Furthermore, a school newspaper, mediators, sports helpers, chess, vocal tenants, vocalino, robot group, youth research and a floorball working group are offered. The school band of the Steinheim High School is called "The Jones".

Projects at the municipal high school in Steinheim

Project "Individual Support"

“Individual support” is to be understood as a collective term to which various approaches and existing concepts can be assigned. The municipal grammar school in Steinheim is one of 137 grammar schools involved in the project “Learning potentials. Individual support in the grammar school ”. The aim of this project is an optimal development of potential and personal development of the students. Both high-performing and weaker students should be supported. A lot of emphasis is placed on the independent and responsible learning of the students. Joint partners of the project are the Ministry for Schools and Further Education of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Mercator Foundation and the Institute for Social Work e. V. as the sponsor of the service agency “all-day learning” North Rhine-Westphalia.

Fair mediator

This project is about dispute settlement by students. Every year, schoolchildren in grade 9 take part in the mediation training. This includes, among other things, cooperative conflict resolution training and learning about the arbitration process. In the event of conflicts between students, they can speak up in a voluntary conversation with the fair mediators, with the aim of identifying the point of dispute, rethinking their own point of view and finally finding a joint solution to the conflict. Advantages of this method are that there is less aggression, few or no penalties are given and that the students act responsibly. The trained fair mediators organize the Fair Play Day for grade 5 every year.

"Young Researchers"

Even before the “Young Researchers” project came into being, the Steinheim municipal high school took part in the Jugend forscht science competition. It was decided to expand the engagement in this area. This project aims to impart MINT skills (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology) to students through everyday work. Low-performing as well as high-performing students should be challenged by the project offers.

The fields of activity of the sports helpers are recreational sports, school sports communities, school sports festivals and competitions, sports-oriented projects and school trips.
