With a class size of eight on av­er­age, Rosen­berg be­lieves in fos­ter­ing in­di­vid­ual de­vel­op­ment plans (IDP) for stu­dents, and en­cour­ages them to delve into their tastes and hone their skills. The cur­ricu­lum en­com­passes art and drama, fash­ion and de­sign, and lead­er­ship skills. The school fol­lows strict dis­ci­pline and stu­dents are dressed ac­cord­ingly in for­mal uni­forms. But the cosy, coun­try style cafe and bon­homie sug­gests a ca­sual in­for­mal­ity in leisure ar­eas. Es­tab­lished in 1889, the school cam­pus cov­ers an area of 100,000 sq m, apart from 15 art nou­veau build­ings, all hemmed by dense green. The geo­graphic set­ting of the school, lo­cated in the old town of St Gallen, po­si­tioned ide­ally be­tween Lake Con­stance and the San­tis peak, al­lows stu­dents to ex­pe­ri­ence var­ied sea­sons, and the re­sul­tant sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties such as soc­cer, bas­ket­ball, wa­ter ski­ing in the school’s own boat dur­ing sum­mer, snow­board­ing and ice skat­ing in win­ter, plus bal­let, trapeze, golf, and tram­po­line. City trips and vis­its to the the­atre and mu­si­cals aren’t a rar­ity ei­ther.
