The Wieland-Gymnasium is one of two Gymnasien in Biberach an der Riß, Baden-Württemberg, Germany . It is named after the poet Christoph Martin Wieland, who lived and worked in Biberach. The school is popular for introducing the Biberacher Modell, a model in which pupils begin to learn Latin at an early age, which has been adopted by many schools in Baden-Württemberg. At the moment the school counts 1029 pupils and 80 teachers. Since 2006, some new buildings, including a cafeteria, have been built on the school grounds to make the school ready for full-time classes.
Pupils can choose to have Latin or additional arts lessons. In the 8th grade, either the natural scientific or the linguistic profile can be chosen. Furthermore, the school is one of the first in Baden-Württemberg to teach economy in higher grades.
