Our school community – playing a democratic part in the success of everyday life

Since 1938 our school has been privately owned by the non-profitmaking school association, the “Max-Rill-Gymnasium Schloss Reichersbeuern” e.V. In this school association sit ten representatives of the school/the boarding school and parents and ten experts (among them former pupils, the parents of former pupils, representatives from the field of politics and professionals). The Board, consisting of three members, advises the general management.

The present members of the Board are:

  • Mr. Florian Trinkl
  • Mr. Lorenz Leitner
  • Mr. Detlef Schmidt

Detailed information on the school association can be ascertained in the statutes which are placed at your disposal in the form of a PDF on this page. Other bodies which play a role in the development of the school are the School Forum, the Parents’ Council, the representatives of the body of pupils and the boarding school, the association of former pupils (the “Altbürger/Altbürgerinnen”) and Friends of the School. Information relating to these bodies can be obtained via the meta-navigation of the home page.

Around 50 members of staff are employed at the Max-Rill-Gymnasium Reichersbeuern Castle in the fields of the school itself, the boarding school, the administration, the kitchen, the domestic management and the facilities management, and they are there for you and your children virtually round the clock!
