Updated 15.09.2021:Leichlingen is a small city of around 25.000 residents and peacefully located along the river Wupper in North Rhine-Westphalia. Although it is in a rather rural area, big and exciting cities like Cologne and Düsseldorf are only a short trip away. Städtische Gymnasium Leichlingen was founded in 1970 and, until today, our school community has grown to around 90 teachers and 1.100 students. The kids are between the ages of nine to nineteen and taught in grades five to twelve. Most of them graduate with the German Abitur. SGL is proud of having been awarded the MINT-EC certificate for offering an outstanding program of Mathematics and Science courses. We also set a focus on independent learning, which is why implemented the Dalton Plan concept. The language program of our school includes German, English, Spanish, French and Latin. We are commited to values such as respect, tolereance, democracy, sustainability and diversity.
