"Frage nie ein Kind, ob es das kann, was ein anderes kann, sondern frage immer, ob es das kann, was es kann." - Heinrich Pestalozzi

About us

The catholic primary school Straß (KGS Straß) has eight classes in total, two per year, and is located in Herzogenrath Straß.

We offer after-school care (for more information, see "OGS") which cooperates with our neighbouring church St. Josef. We value a close cooperation with neighbouring daycares. Our school is close to the German-Dutch border and children from the Netherlands visit our school as well. 

Our school being located rather rural allows us to enjoy nature and include it into our school days, for example by doing excursions to the Wurmtal which is close to our school. Our schoolyard provides many opportunities for the children to play outside.

Since 2012 we support inclusive teaching which means that we value the diverse needs and backgrounds of all students, so that we can create a learning environment where every child feels valued and all children have equal access to learn.

Since 2011 we cooperate with Musikschule Herzogenrath and offer a Bläserklasse, see "Musikalische Grundschule".

Inclusive Teaching

Since the school year 2012/2013 we support inclusive teaching which means that we value the diverse needs and backgrounds of all students, so that we can create a learning environment where every child feels valued and all children have equal access to learn. To ensure the best possible education development, a teacher specialised in special needs education works at our school.

We create individual educational support plans for special needs children. At times we teach in teams to individually support the children and create a learning environment in which each child can work according to their individual abilities.
