I am trying to research the school options in Munich for my eldest son who will be 5 in July when we are likely to move. He is currently in the British School here in Amsterdam and we probably have to go to Munich for 2 years after which we will go to the UK.
So my knowledge to date makes me think that German schools are not an option and even the European School in the centre of Munich probably is not an option (if we managed to get in) as it would only be half days until he is 6 and would be quite a step back in terms of what he is doing this year in Reception. We have to think of not putting him at a disadvantage when we go back to the UK in 2 years. That seems to leave the MIS with the IB system being the closest thing to the British National Curriculum.
BUT its a long way out of town despite bus services which at 5 yrs I'm not wild about. So is this really the only option or does anyone have any other ideas we could look at. If we do have to go with the MIS, where does everyone live in relation to the school (surely not all the way in Starnberg
), ie is there an expat area in the South/West side of the city (my husband's office is likely to be near the airport or city centre), or are the expat communities spread out?
Many thanks for any advice.
