Education Options Frankfurt-Rhein-Main

For parents new to the Rhein-Main region, finding a school which best suits a child's needs presents a dilemma between choosing the traditional but often inflexible German public school system, or a private but expensive alternative. German schools represent more than just an opportunity for your child to learn a second language and experience a foreign culture. Enrolling your child in a German school can aid in the integration of both the child and the parents in the community. What's more, the public education system is government-subsidized and is therefore tuition free. International schools are accustomed to dealing with children from all over the world and with varied linguistic backgrounds. One advantage of the international education system is portability and continuity of the curriculum, which helps prevent learning gaps if the family moves to another location or returns home. And as private schools, they can often afford better facilities, extensive extracurricular activities and longer hours - in some cases up to 6 p.m. But you pay for the privilege: tuition fees can run to well over 18,000 euros a year in the secondary school. German taxpayers can, however, deduct up to 30% of these fees from their taxes as extraordinary expenses (Sonderausgaben) up to a maximum amount of 5,000 euros. In recent years, a number of bilingual (German-English) primary schools have opened in Frankfurt with tuition that ranges from 220 to 1000 euros per month. What follows is a brief overview of the major international and bilingual schools in the Frankfurt Rhein-Main region.
