The European School Munich (ESM) is one of the 14 official schools across Europe that is part of the European School system. The Munich school was founded in 1977, at the same time as the European Patent Office in Munich. The ESM is a multicultural and multilingual institution, offering mother-tongue tuition from kindergarten to 12th grade. ESM follows the curriculum of all European Schools, which leads to the European Baccalaureate, a graduation diploma that qualifies university studies in any country of the European Union. The current enrollment is about 1,600 students. As the capacity of the school has been reached, the ESM has strict admissions requirements: only children of employees of the European Patent Office, of the EU, of teachers and personnel of the school (category 1) are eligible. In some cases, children can be admitted if their parent's employer has a contract with the ESM (category two). For all other "non-eligible" children (category three), admission is only offered on a space-available basis. Fees for category three pupils are 3,500 euros for primary school and 4,775 euros for secondary school. The school currently has no spaces available in the most popular language sections English or German. Admission may be possible in limited numbers in some classes of the Italian, Greek, Spanish and Dutch language sections of the primary school. In the secondary school this applies to the French, Italian and Dutch language sections. There is no admission possible in kindergarten for category 3 children.
