Schulwiese (now known as Jarzębina; coordinates: 53.85381, 18.89242 [53° 51′ 13″ N, 18° 53′ 32″ E]; population in 1905, 159; in 2013, 130); is located 13.5 kilometres (km) north of Kwidzyn (Marienwerder), 22.5 km south south-west of Malbork (Marienburg), 25.7 km east south-east of Starogard Gdański (Preußisch Stargard), and 28.1 km south south-east of Tczew (Dirschau). It was situated south of Rudnerweide and west of Klein Schardau.

The first mention of Schulwiese is in 1624. The First Partition of Poland in 1772 resulted in the creation of a new province in 1773, called West Prussia, in which Schulwiese was located. Schulwiese was situated in the district (Kreis) of Marienwerder until the end of World War I, when it came under the jurisdiction of the German province of East Prussia. Schulwiese came under the control of Nazi Germany during World War II until February 1945, when it was occupied by Soviet forces and returned to Poland. In 2012 Schulwiese (now Jarzębina) was a village in the administrative district of Gmina Ryjewo, within Kwidzyn County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.

Schulwiese was settled by Mennonites in the 18th century. Inhabitants mentioned in 1748 include: Martin Zimen, Wilhelm Unrau, Hendrich Gertzen, Heinrich Frantzen, Tobias Ecker, and Martin Simon. The 1776 Prussian census lists 30 Mennonite families in the village with the following surnames: Abraham, Baltzer, Casper, Ediger, Ewert, Fodt, Goertz, Goertzen, Jantzen, Knelsen, Nickel, Pauls, Penner, Quiring, and Schmidt.
