The Kaiserin-Friedrich-Gymnasium is a secondary school in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe, Hesse, Germany.
The school was founded in 1550 as a private Latin school and is one of the oldest schools in the German-speaking region of Europe. In 1900 it received the name of Victoria, Princess Royal , the wife of Kaiser Friedrich III and daughter of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. From 1937 the school was named the Kaiserin-Friedrich-Schule , regaining its previous name Kaiserin-Friedrich-Gymnasium in February 2000. For centuries the school was for boys only, but destruction of the Bad Homburg's Lyzeum senior girls school in the Second World War led to girls being admitted in increasing numbers from the late 1940s.
