Gymnasium am Ostring
The school was located in downtown Bochum, near the main train station.
In the 2005-2006 school year, there were 786 students and 55 teachers. In the early 80s, the school had over 1,000 students. The peak enrollment was 1,310 in the 1980-1981 school year.
In August 2010, the Gymnasium am Ostring merged with the Albert-Einstein-Schule to form the Neues Gymnasium Bochum, the new combined school's temporary name until a new one is selected. The school will relocate to the site of the former Albert-Einstein-Schule on October 22, 2012.
