There are not any particular reasons that qualifies us as a disadvantaged area. Our school was newly rebuilt in 2010. We offer a

lot of after school activities e.g. girls´choir, brass orchestra, cabaret etc. The percentage of students from different countries such as Lebanon, Syria, former Russia, former Yugoslavia is about 2% but we have quite a significant rate of unemployment as a result of economic transformation and because of the great many close downs of businesses in the region.

We hope to show our partner schools that our new federal state Saxony-Anhalt, that used to be the largest chemical region of the former GDR, has also a quite significant cultural  heritage such as the Road of the Romanesque, Händels and Luthers

birthplaces, the Harz Mountains with its highest peak the Brocken which divided 22 years ago the 2 German countries and many more places of interest.
