The Carl-Zeiss-Gymnasium Jena is a state-funded German elite Gymnasium for highly gifted students in the fields of math, science, and technology. Before changing its profile to fully focus and these aspects, it used to be a regular German public Gymnasium with a special separate school section attached to it. The school is named after the famous optician Carl Zeiss and is located in the city of Jena in Germany . It admits students from all over the federal state.
Currently there are about 500 students attending this school. But not all of those are enrolled in the special educational program. This program is restricted to highly gifted students. Hence, there are certain requirements for an individual to be able to obtain a place at this school including qualification exams and other background checks like grades and awards accomplished by the prospective student mostly at the former school.
