Founded in 1899 as a Kreisrealschule, it became a Kreisoberrealschule in 1940 and a state-run Gymnasium in 1965. It currently holds around 750 students mainly in a natural scientific-mathematical, but as of late also a modern language branch.
In 1998, a gifted student class was started. In a partnership with Ludwig Maximilian University gifted students receive socalled „Enrichment“ classes, during which they can carry out experiments themselves at the biology and physics departments under supervision by known professors.
A new building with cafeteria and several new specialist rooms was recently built, made necessary by the adoption of the 8-year Gymnasium in many German states.
