Schools for Children

As an expat if you decide to move your family including your children to Germany with you, it is important to be aware of different schools in Germany which you can enroll your child.  As a rule, you are totally free which school in your city your child is to attend. Therefore, it is best to have a good look to find the right one for your child.  A good school not only offers high quality instruction, but offers extracurricular activities such as sports, music, theatre, field trips and also various languages.  A school that encourages parent involvement is also very good.

If your child is not fluent in German, there is the option of an international school which offers German classes as a foreign language and the main language used in the school will be the English language.  In such case the child can feel more part of the class and the teachers will make sure that your child understands the classroom instructions.
