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".

We welcomed our alumni and now lawyer Lama Maliha, who met with the 11B and 12B students to talk about her profession. Career counselling included!

Congratulations to the newly selected student commitee for the 2023-24 school year: Laila Atamneh, Christina Mansour, Mila Naser-Aldeen, Joudy Abu Kaf. Good luck with your projects for the benefit of all students.


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.

Enjoy the music video by clicking on the pic.

The fall of the Berlin Wall 34 years ago was commemorated on October 3rd. Secondary school students researched personal refugees’ stories from East to West, filmed video interviews with the Germans on site and also contributed musically to an atmospheric school assembly. Afterwards there was a project feast for all Schmidt Girls with typical German delicacies, a quiz on questions about Germany, self-made bracelets in black, red and gold and much more. Unity and law and freedom - the catchy tune of the month!

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.
