Schule Schloss Salem - Facts and Figures
A quick overview
Schule Schloss Salem is a state-recognised boarding school with around 280 staff members. Since 1920, the school has aimed to educate personalities in the spirit of its founder Kurt Hahn. Salem's special quality is to strengthen children and young people through communal experiences and at the same time to open up spaces for their individual development. This quality depends on well-trained, but above all committed staff who enjoy working in a diverse and multinational environment. Outside of the boarding school and school, one of the most scenic areas in Germany awaits you in the immediate vicinity of Lake Constance with water and winter sports opportunities, cultural and natural attractions and a high quality of life.
