Anyone driving into the Celebeslaan sees a small metropolitan school with about 1150 students, hidden in the greenery, in a beautiful - if not the most beautiful - spot on the outskirts of Eindhoven. A place that radiates tranquility. But appearances are deceptive: there is a dynamic environment in which young people prepare themselves through havo, atheneum or gymnasium for a valuable position in society.
We have a long educational experience of over 90 years! The former Lorentz Lyceum was founded in 1929 by parents who did not find in Eindhoven the appropriate education they envisioned for their children. They were inspired by the Nobel laureate Hendrik Antoon Lorentz. He was a leading physicist who was an inspiration to many parents, often Philips employees. In 1930, the Lorentz Lyceum opened its doors at 15-17 Parklaan. In the early 1960s, the school got its own building on Celebeslaan.
The adjacent school, the Rommert Casimir Havo, was also founded by parents inspired by Rommert Casimir, educator and educational innovator who stood for the importance of a modern approach in education.
In 1996, these two schools merged to form the Lorentz Casimir Lyceum for havo, atheneum and gymnasium education. In 1999, the two schools were physically connected by adding an intermediate building.
In short: we are just a really fun school!
The school is located at Celebeslaan 20 in Eindhoven. Our buildings are located in green surroundings and yet in the middle of the city. You will find the Lorentz Casimir Lyceum in the green park Wasven. This green area comprises six hectares of cultural and natural greenery in the Tongelre district of Eindhoven. A special location of which we are proud!
In front of our school is a red bike lane that connects to many bike routes. A safe way to get to school. Not only students from Eindhoven come to our school, but also many students from surrounding villages. Click on the map below to determine your bicycle route.
The Lorentz Casimir Lyceum is a member of the Brainport Schools partnership. We work together with other schools, companies and organizations in the region. Together, we ensure that our education is as closely aligned to the future and the environment as possible. In our Brainport region, innovation, entrepreneurship, technology and sustainability play a major role. Brainport schools are distinguished by their special attention to these themes.
