The Grovesmühle in the Nordharz is a boarding school with an independent sponsorship. It is our aim to accompany students on their way to a successful gradation and to optimally prepare them for life after school. We give children and young people the space and opportunity to discover and develop their own interests and talents. At the same time, we attach great importance to strengthening the sense of responsibility for oneself and others. With different types of schools under one roof, we can challenge and support each young person according to their situation, with the goal of a holistic education and a qualified educational degree.
Values and Vision
Our goal is to lead our students to a successful graduation certificate, to strengthen their social skills and self-responsibility as well as teaching them all important fundamentals for life. Learn more

Not an elite school. Yet excellent.
For our commitment in the school and extracurricular sector, we have repeatedly received numerous awards over the years.
We do not only want to cultivate and communicate our social values during school time. Even after school, we appreciate parents and students who stay in contact with us.

Awards and Recognition
Since 2011, Katja Must regularly visits our 5th and 6th graders with her Labrador. The dog-supported pedagogy not only provides a better learning atmosphere, but also improves the social behavior of the students and helps to reduce stress. The children's self-confidence is strengthened and they develop a positive attitude towards school. "The dog doesn’t demand. He won't tell any secrets, he doesn't judge. The children can be who they are." The communication of the dog is direct and unambiguous, knows no mockery and no reproaches.
At Grovesmühle, the guilds (working groups) are an integral part of the teaching of the lower and intermediate grades. Here, pupils can develop their individual interests and talents in a practical way.

Teachers, educators and social pedagogues look after the students, but what would we be without our administrative staff, our janitors and craftsmen, our cleaning staff and our kitchen team?
The heart and soul of the Landschulheim is the great Grovesmühle - Team, which makes life at the boarding school something special.
