How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Most commute from outer areas by car but there is a good train connection that stops at the school.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The school building is older, but newer facilities have been added to accomodate the schools growth. There is a good range of after school programs and a new PTO which plans more activities in the future.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

The curriculum is taught in English, but there is a great emphasis on teaching German as well. The classes are small and the teachers are excellent. The Director of the school is top-notch and the school makes it a point to reach out to new parents/families. The Families in the school also try to help each other.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There is a new PTO with some activities just starting up. Evening get-togethers. The parents like to "hang around" after school and chat in the garden while the children play.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Look at the whole program and the future of the school. It is new and growing with top-notch Staff, Teachers and a fabulous Director. The curriculum is of course based on the International schools curriculum. Class size is small but not too small.
