When we asked about the schools in Germany, they said...

"As an American coming over to Germany, it was hard to understand the IB perspective at first. But I committed to it learning it and now I feel it is much better than a public school in the US. The school is friendly and welcoming, and Hannover is an amazing place to raise a family," explained one expat living in Hannover, Germany.

"Elementary school is a positive environment for the children. The children are taught to help each other, hold the door open for the person behind you, say please and thank you, which is not always found in the German culture. Middle school is need of improvement, non-native English teacher teaching English. Math teachers non-motivating and non-inspirational. There is an advantage for the teachers, class sizes are small and yet they are unable to inspire. No IBO, or IGCSE proven programs," said one parent with children at International school Augsburg in Gersthofen.
