The European School Frankfurt (ESF) is one of the 14 official schools across Europe that are jointly administered by the European Union. This school was built primarily for the children of employees of the European Central Bank (ECB), which is headquartered in Frankfurt. Located in Praunheim, the ESF offers four language sections (German, English, French, Italian) and provides a multicultural, multilingual and multi-denominational curriculum from kindergarten (age four) to grade 12. The program features optional literary subjects and sciences as well as intercultural activities like "European Week." Graduates earn the European Baccalaureate degree, which allows them to study at universities in any EU country and is also recognized around the world. Children whose parents work for the ECB (or other EU institutions) pay no tuition, while others (so-called Category II or III) tuition varies according to the category and the school level (Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary). Consult the website for more details. For parents who are not part of the ECB community, it is very difficult - if not impossible - to enroll their child in the English or German track of this school.
