Gustav-Heinemann-Schule,
Mülheim an der Ruhr (Germany)

The Gustav-Heinemann-Schule is a large comprehensive school with about 1,600 students and 120 teachers. It was founded in 1970. Situated on the edge of the industrial town of Mülheim (pop. 170,000), the Gustav-Heinemann-Schule is a multicultural place with people from 26 different countries; about 15 % of the students have a migration background.

Children enter the school at the age of 10 and can leave after 6 years, at the end of their compulsory schooling; or they can stay on for another 3 years to pass their "Abitur", the German university entrance exam.

The school's curriculum emphasizes, among other things, project work and international cooperation with partner schools in several European countries.
