6th until 10th

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

Bus or walk

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

They do not have much to offer the children for extra-curricular. It is an older school. The building is OK but nothing extra in it.

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?

We were required to attend this school since my daughter did not speak German. The give her a German class and that is about all the offer.

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

I do not know of any.

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

I would say to be prepared to fight for your childrens rights. We had to do a lot of complaining until they added classes and time to my daughters school day. Things have improved but it took a lot of meetings to get there.
