Jakob-Fugger-Gymnasium is a grammar school with about 800 pupils, some 32% girls. About 62 teachers teach in 23 classes (year 5-11) and in about sixty form courses (year 12-13).

From September 2003 Jakob-Fugger-Gymnasium offers two branches of study:

  • Economic Science (WSG-W)
  • Science and Technology (NTG)

Both branches start with English as first foreign language. The new branches start with year 5, the three old branches are gradually phased out and end with year 13 in 2011.

The school is located in the middle of Augsburg city near the central station but nevertheless it is surrounded by nature so that pupils enjoy being outside. The school is well equipped with two IT-rooms, two gyms and a sports field, two newly renovated and newly equipped physics-rooms, two new biology-rooms, and two new chemistry-rooms. Besides the school has two music-rooms and two art-rooms.
