Maria von Linden Gymnasium is a German Secondary School offering both lower and upper classes. About 80 teachers work with about 1100 students. We teach English, French, Spanish and Latin as foreign languages, English being the first one taught from beginners classes on. Our school offers a focus on sports, music and science. In addition, we have lots of extracurricular activities. It is situated in the South of Germany, in the city of Calw. Calw is the birthplace of the German writer Hermann Hesse who is well-known. Calw itself is a pitcuresque smaller city in the Black Forest, surrounded by beautiful scenery offering lots of opportunities for outdoor sports and outdoor leisure activities in both summer and winter. Calw is close to Stuttgart which is well-known for its car engineering companies like Mercedes or Porsche. As Calw is situated in the South of Germany, it's not far away from the French, Swiss and Austrian border.

Wünsche hinsichtlich Partnerschule: We are interested in a continuous partnership with a school in an English and French spoken country. We would love to set up an intercultural language exchange program. We are interested in a language exchange projects that focuses on gaining some intercultural experience in general which we, living in a continually globalising world, consider to be from tremendous and fundamental importance.As Calw is situated in the scenic Black Forest, we could imagine a project to focus on shared outdoor experiences as well as on (winter) sport activities. However, we are very flexible and open-minded towards new/different ideas.The native language of our students is German, the main languages of communication could be English, French and German. Our students do also learn Spanish. Our wish would be to involve our students aged 14-16, but as we are a secondary school teaching students aged 11-19, we are very flexible regarding this aspect. I am really looking forward to hearing from you and to setting up a new project!
