Jerusalem - The Holy City for three world religions: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. There where these religions meet is a unique school: the Schmidt Schule.

The Schmidt Schule was founded in 1886 as a private girls' school under Catholic school sponsorship and is today under the ownership of the German Association of the Holy Land (DVHL).

The objective was and still is to offer girls' education at the highest level: intercultural, interreligious, multilingual, holistic and independent of the social and religious background of the students. Today, this offer is taken up by 530 girls of Christian or Muslim faith. Since 2008, the Schmidt Schule has belonged to the circle of 140 German schools abroad worldwide and since 2015 it has held the seal of quality "Excellent German School Abroad".

In the week before the Easter holidays, the traditional Easter egg hunt took place again in the garden of St. Charles. The 54 girls from 1A and 1B searched the garden diligently to not leave any eggs behind. The Schmidt School wishes everyone HAPPY EASTER!

On March 4th, the President of the DVHL, His Eminence Rainer Cardinal Wölki, together with the Secretary General, Dr. Matthias Vogt visited the Schmidt School to get an idea of ​​the current situation of the school in the current crisis.

When meeting with Elementary school students, the girls greeted the cardinal with great joy and the children were very interested in the name and profession of the guest, who willingly answered the students' questions. The cardinal also talked about his own experience as a religion teacher as a young chaplain at school.

During the following visit to the religion course in grade 12B, Cardinal Wölki exchanged ideas with the students about their study and career aspirations and wished the girls much success and God's blessing for the upcoming oral Abitur exams.


Last school year, the 11B class worked on a music project based on the hit “Anything that’ll last” by the famous German band “Silbermond”. Under the guidance of our former volunteer Lukas Kiel, the students joined together as a choir to record various parts of the song, take the spotlight with solo parts, and shoot and edit scenes for the music video. Well, in October 2023 the video was completed and we hope that this song with its special lyrics can provide comfort and hope in the current situation.

Sozialfonds Schmidt-Schule

The 'Sozialfonds Schmidt-Schule' covers part of the costs if the families don't have enough money to pay their daughters school fees. In this way, daughters from poor families can also get an excellent start into professional life. Generous sponsors also made it possible to purchase new equipment for the playground, additional books for the school library and stage lights for the auditorium. Perhaps you, too, would like to support the Schmidt School and its students.
