Central Idea
The John F. Kennedy School in Erfurt is a modern comprehensive school in which students with different interests and talents learn together.

We offer a continous school program from Grade 1 up to Abitur.



Our goal:
Empowering young people to find their way of life.

Our bilingual profile and motivating school culture enables every student to graduate. We help students from year 7 up to year 12 to make good use of their chances and find a fitting career path.

Competence-oriented lessons build up knowledge systematically. We aim to let students put their knowledge to use for problem solving and autonomous learning.

Our educational principle is learning beyond the classroom.

We facilitate individual support in an ideal learning environment.



Our comprehensive school lays focus on language, media, and science classes.
Everyday life in school is characterized by mutual respect, equality and aspiration.

Our school as a place of learning and living
Apart from health-promoting principles in class, we believe that a successful school is open to feedback and an emotional and physical safe space where students, parents and teachers communicate coequally.
We know than learning can only be successful through respectful, appreciative and trustful interaction. The starting point is our students natural curiosity and drive to learn and form their personality. We offer a framework that is constantly adapted to our students.

It is crucial to us that students and teachers work responsibly and in a problem-solving manner towards achieving their goals. Teachers and students agree on learning goals in an active exchange.

Bilingual Stream
We offer classes in history, civics, and geography in English.

Pedagogic diversity
For us, pedagogic diversity means recognizing talent, challenging studetns, developing skills, fostering abilities and strengthening relationships. Students revisit their individual learning topics in small groups.

Our success if visible through our work in areas like social learning, diagnostics and counseling, individual learning and career guidance. The school has a social and method learning curriculum in which method training, internships and rhetoric courses are anchored.

Our intensive training for job interviews starting in year 10 prepares students for a successful entry into their job or university education.

Direct communication between teachers and students and a trustful relationship are the basis of effective learning.
