What should I call my school club?
Our school name

important painter and graphic artist
In 2002 our school was named after its former student and the important artist Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, who passed his Abitur at the Royal High School in Chemnitz in 1905.
We are the only school that bears this name.
During his school days and as a member of the "Vulkan" school club, he and his friends pursued not only poetry but also their passion for painting and drawing.
Later - during his studies - he co-founded an artists' association, which he named Brücke.
"We can call the association a bridge. That is a complex word, it does not mean a program, but in a sense it leads from one bank to the other."

Our school logo
The ginkgo tree
The ginkgo tree is revered in many cultures.
Thus it is a world tree and symbolizes strength and hope for many.
It stands for a long life, friendship, adaptability and invincibility.
Why did we choose it as the symbol of our school?
Our school building at Hohen Straße 25 is surrounded by large trees that are reminiscent of a park. You radiate calm in the midst of the hectic everyday school life.
A ginkgo tree has long been one of them ...
From a biological point of view, the ginkgo is a specialty. Although the leaves, which resemble "green duck feet", fall down in autumn, it is not a deciduous tree. The plant belonging to the group of naked samos is rather counted among the conifers. The ginkgo survived the change of nature for almost 300 million years. He survived the ice ages and finally withdrew to the mountainous world of China. It was only 250 years ago that he returned to Europe from Asia, where he quickly found friends and sponsors.
In the spring of 1946, the tree excited explorers around the world. Just 800 meters from the center of the atomic bomb explosion on Hiroshima, it sprouted fresh shoots from its withered rhizome less than a year later. So it is not surprising that it is seen as a symbol for life.
A few years ago we planted a small one next to the old tree, the crown of which extends to the roof of our school building. For us it symbolizes the flow of life. When our second school building was inaugurated in 2002, the graduates of the time also planted a ginkgo tree there - as a symbol of the "bridge" between the two houses.
Like the ginkgo tree, our school survives. It adapts to the changed times and preserves its essence.
This tree's leaf, that of the east
