Head of School

Qualified, motivated, experienced staff members are key to the success of our work.

Ralf Schönborn
Head of Primary School

After many years in school leadership roles at different schools in both Germany and the USA, Ralf Schönborn started at our JSS as a leadership team member in October 2021. He then took over the position of primary school headmaster at both sites on 1 December last year. Ralf studied social pedagogy and worked in a youth home. His two now big "children", Marie and Frederik, in a way live the same spread as Ralf himself: one leg firmly in Germany (Frederik), the other, at least emotionally, in the USA (Marie). He feels that being allowed to work at the JSS is like winning the lottery.

Lisa Schüfer studied German, Math and Catholic Religion in Ludwigsburg at the University of Education. As a native to Neckarsulm, she enriches the Josef-Schwarz-School Team since 2013.
