FRIEDRICH- SCHILLER- GYMNASIUM & EISENBERG
History of the Friedrich-Schiller-Gymnasium
Building a school was first planned in 1904, which was finished
only one year later. 1906 it was inducted by the duke Ernst von
Sachsen-Anhalt as “Herzog-Ernst-Schule”.
After 12 years it was renamed “Friedrich-Schiller-Schule”.
The quotation “It is not possible for me to keep something imperfect,
when I know that I can make it better” by the poet Friedrich Schiller,
has been regarded as the schools maxim ever.
Between 1918 and 1940 it was a girls school and by the end of World War II
the school was partly used as a military hospital.
In 1948, Eisenberg reorganized its schools into an eastern and a western part,
which were supposed to be coeducational. One year later the building changed
into a comprehensive school and in 1956 into a secondary school. Four years
later it became a general-education grammar school until in 1991, it finally
turned into what we today know as the national “Friedrich- Schiller – Gymnasium”.
