However, additional booze requires more space. In 2018, the Dusseldorf State Parliament decided to return to the Group of Nine. Grammar schools have been shifting since the 2019/20 school year, with the first class of G9 graduating in the 2026/207 school year. With the thirteenth grade, an additional year will be taught in schools, so that additional rooms will be required by summer 2026. There should be an unchanging number of classes for each grade level. Several political committees are now dealing with a tentative decision to expand six grammar schools. A feasibility study should show what is possible where. Then the city council has the final say.
Back to G9
Annette-von-Droste-Hülshoff-Gymnasium (5 classes): The small gymnastics hall, used mainly by sports clubs in the evenings, will be demolished to expand by 630 square metres. A new three-storey building is planned and the adjacent classroom wing will be increased to three floors.
Freiherr-vom-Stein-Gymnasium (5 classes): There is a potential expansion area in the school building, planned for a total of 970 square metres.
Gymnasium Paulinum (4-Stream): According to the feasibility study, there is only one option for an additional 640 square metres, which is the indoor suite where the canteen is located.
Pascal-Gymnasium (5 chapters): here the management is proposing a new building in the area on Wienburgstraße in front of the new sports hall, which is supposed to provide an additional 1,870 square metres.
Ratsgymnasium (4-Stream): The 500 m² extension can be created by adding a floor to the U-shaped portion of the building facing the Gropperstrasse.
Schillergymnasium (4-Stream): Among other things, a new mezzanine is planned on Finkenstrasse for an additional 1,140 square metres.
The planning costs for these six construction projects are approximately 1.6 million euros.
Investments also in other secondary schools
For the grammar schools in the Hiltrup, Kinderhaus and Wolbeck School Centers, the Board has already passed decisions on expansion. For Johann-Conrad-Schlaun-Gymnasium, it is planned to demolish part and build a new part at the existing site. The decision in principle to expand the Wilhelm-Hittorf-Gymnasium was also possible earlier because the school authority was able to use the winning design from a previous competition during the planning phase.
