The Friderico-Francisceum is a secondary school (“gymnasium”). It is in Bad Doberan, a town in Germany. The short name of the school is FFG.

Students from grade 7 to grade 12 go to the school.

History[change | change source]

The school was founded in 1879. Its name is Friderico-Francisceum, because the founder was named Frederick Francis II. He was the Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Only boys went to the school until 1927.

From 1947 to 1991 (during GDR times) the school was named “Goethe School”.

Birgit Hacker is the head teacher of the school since 2011.

Building[change | change source]

The main building of the school was built in 1889. The architect of the building was Gotthilf Ludwig Möckel.

A new school building behind the old one opened in 2001. It was needed, because the number of students got bigger.
