The prestigious and well-known gymnasium Heimschule Kloster Wald was founded in 1946: from the very beginning there was separate education (only girls), and also accreditation of secular education was received. Curricula and programs fully comply with the standards of the state of Baden-Württemberg.
Currently, the school is located in the buildings of the ancient monastery: despite the ancient walls, the Heimschule Kloster Wald is constantly being modernized and offers the students the most modern, comfortable and effective learning environment that fully meets the highest international standards. The Wald Monastery was founded in 1212, and today it is an architectural monument of Romanesque and Gothic style, as well as baroque (some parts of the building were rebuilt in 1698). The western and northern parts of the monastery were also completed by a large baroque complex in 1721-1727. The school in the building was founded in 1946, after the end of World War II.
Here, an individual approach is actively practiced, creating all conditions for successful and rapid academic, creative, professional and sporting development: after graduation you can get not only a certificate of maturity, but also useful handicraft certificates (carpentry, sewing, sculpture ).
