About us


Our school, the Leibniz-Gymnasium, is located in the centre of Potsdam's biggest residential area called "Am Stern".
Due to Keplerplatz which is nearby the school is conveniently accessible via public transport for pupils arriving from the city centre itself as well as for those from neighbourhoods like Kleinmachnow, Stahnsdorf, Teltow and Michendorf.

Being the central element of the outstanding development project "Campus Stern" our school was completely redeveloped between 2006 and 2009.
Beside our school the educational site also features the neighbouring elementary school "Am Pappelhain", the J. S. Bach Music School, the bordering indoor swimming pool and a variety of modern sports facilities.


In the course of the redevelopment the entire school area has been redesigned: Next to the new schoolyards most modern leisure facilities are have been created meeting the needs of pupils at all ages.

Thus the Leibniz-Gymnasium and its direct surroundings offer excellent conditions for envisaging Brandenburg's high-quality concept according to the education grant for particularly gifted pupils.

During the five years of the school's successful participation in the pilot scheme "Advanced Classes" the teachers have gained great experience of working with especially gifted pupils and constantly improved their knowledge in special courses.

On account of this convincing work we were awarded special permission to teaching advanced educated classes also at elementary school level (year 5 and 6) in 2007.
According to many pupils, teachers, residents and officials our dual profile (sciences and fine arts) contributed not only to enhancing the reputation of the educational site "Campus Stern" but of the entire residential area. 

"Success through kindness and excelence"
