The castle in which Schloss Schule Stein is located today is known from the XII century as an impregnable and powerful fortress, important for protection against the enemy. 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 Zieglers 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 motto is the phrase "Modern education on historical land." The school has the uniform.

The educational institution is a valid and active member of the Association of Educational Institutions in Germany and France. The basis of the pedagogical approach is the understanding of the uniqueness and individuality of each child, the full and maximum disclosure of personal talents and abilities. For this purpose, there is a huge number of electives, clubs, sections and circles 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, staff always ready to give 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.

High school students in the final grades can choose one of the academic courses: economics or linguistics (modern foreign languages). Final exams are given for selected disciplines, and their points go to the general certificate of Abitur.

Foreign students are always welcome here: they can count on additional, supporting lessons of the German language (in addition to basic classes), on the attentive and caring attitude of teachers. You can also attend additional lessons in separate disciplines and subjects if the student feels lagging behind a particular topic or aspect turned out to be too complex for him.
