Welcome
to the Obermenzinger Gymnasium!



Dear parents and pupils,

Providing individual support in a friendly, caring atmosphere and with a varied daily routine is at the centre of all the institutions of the Münchner Schulstiftung.

The Obermenzinger Gymnasium is a private school located in the lovely residential district of Obermenzing. Due to its small size and caring atmosphere, the Obermenzinger Gymnasium provides an environment in which both pupils and teachers feel comfortable and are able to build the foundations of a successful school experience.

Our Obermenzinger Gymnasium is an all-day school that offers a rhythmic daily routine, one that alternates between classroom instruction, independent learning and creative activities (AGs).
We focus on holistic personality development through our comprehensive range of additional activities in the creative, sport and musical arenas.

Our instruction is carried out within a "two-teacher system". In the lower grades, the subject teacher is supported in the classroom by an educational assistant (or language assistant in the bilingual classes) for most lessons. The educational assistant accompanies and supervises the pupils throughout their school day.

As of the school year 2013/2014 the Obermenzinger Gymnasium offers a bilingual track (German-English) for pupils who are already fluent English speakers. The role of educational assistant in the bilingual class is filled by a English speaking language assistant.
In the middle grades (up to the 9th year) the educational/language assistant continues to support the pupils on a more limited basis, for example in core subjects and in their study period.

The ABIplus® programme is another unique feature of the Obermenzinger Gymnasium. Interested pupils have the option, while working towards their Abitur certificate (general qualification for university entrance), of also acquiring a vocational qualification as a: Accounting Data Entry Clerk (VDP), Certified Business Assistant (specialising in information processing), Multimedia Assistant (VBP). With some courses this qualification will count as a recognised professional certification.

Diverse cultural education, wind instrument classes / choir, a number of elective courses and AGs such as individual music lessons, diving, boxing, golf, photography and computer hardware courses serve to complement and round off the full educational spectrum.

Our school psychology team, led by a qualified psychologist (Diplompsychologe), is always on hand to attend to any mental health or emotional issues, as well as to support pupils with educational therapy, if needed.

We also recognise the importance of a healthy diet. The Obermenzinger Gymnasium has its own canteen where our two chefs prepare lunch for our pupils.


With best wishes,
Klaus Blaier, Headteacher
