The Schloss Schule Stein private school is located in the famous, hospitable region of Bavaria, 90 kilometers from Munich. The area is surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Alpine mountains, here there are many ancient historical castles and fortresses, the purest lakes, and the air is always fresh and clean.

In the 19th century, the fortress was run by Amalia Bogarne, a relative of the legendary Napoleon Bonaparte and Princess of Lichtenberg, but already in the middle of the 20th century the fortress moved to its last owners (since 1964 it is owned by the Ziegler family), who founded the school here. Sebastian Ziegler is the director, he also teaches at school and lives with the whole family on campus. The institution carefully preserves historical customs and traditions, classical family values and strives to create an atmosphere of warmth, coziness, comfort and security, intimacy and friendliness. The motto is the phrase "Modern education on historical land." A uniform school uniform has been adopted.

The basis of the pedagogical approach is the understanding of the uniqueness and individuality of each child, the full and maximum disclosure of his personal talents and abilities. For this purpose, there is a huge number of electives, clubs, sections and clubs of interest: everyone can find a job to taste, communicate with like-minded people and show their talent. Every student here is known in person, always ready to give him all kinds of help and support. Senior students usually take patronage over the younger ones, become for them experienced mentors: they help in solving various problems, organize events and holidays for them, accompany them during excursions, trips to the theater or cinema, at sports and leisure activities.
