13 posts in this topic

If you are looking for an English-speaking school for your children, you have come to the right place:

 

The Jules Verne Campus is a state-approved bilingual elementary school, including all-day concept and supervision throughout the school holidays. Since September, 2015, a high school ("Gymnasium") is part of the Jules Verne Campus as well.

German and English natives as teachers

Our goal is to provide a long-lasting, bilingual, and intercultural education. We stress the importance of internationality, global thinking, and entrepreneurship. Individual learning and a healthy, balanced lifestyle—with freshly prepared meals and daily sports and exercise—are keystones of our appoach. At Jules Verne Campus, we encourage and challenge children according to the principle of language immersion – with native speakers in small groups with a maximum of about 24 children teaching with methods that address the individual needs of students.

 

Following and surpassing the official Bavarian elementary school curriculum

With our special subject “Curiosology”, we nurture and encourage children’s natural curiosity as a source of enjoyment, creativity, and success. Based on scientific evidence that shows there is a direct connection between physical activiy and brain development, we have created a diverse program of daily physical activity at Jules Verne Campus. Our program is age-specific and incorporates aspects of aerobic exercise, coordination, and mental focus.

 

PYP- oriented international branch

In addition to the bilingual teaching, where lessons are held in both German and English in almost equal shares, an "international branch" is available where the lessons are held mainly in English. The international branch is designed having in mind the curriculum of international schools, so the Bavarian curriculum is supplemented by the Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). This new branch aims at supporting parents moving to Germany or planing to move abroad. Members of our team are happy to answer any questions you might have about our unique educational approach.

Hi MrGalak, the Jules Verne school is just a few years old but the parents in a Facebook Group I belong to sing its praises.  My husband and I have both gone to the information and service evenings and were quite impressed.  I do not think it will be easy to get into the school though, as the good schools do not remain a secret for long.

I have read lots of posts about schools and areas to live etc but I wanted to get some up to date specific advice from the experienced good people on this site!  Hopefully this is now in the Munich section as I keep managing to post in others. Anyway...

 

My husband has a job lined up in Munich and is leaving in about a month (all very rushed). I might come with our 2 daughters a bit later although I realise that might be problematic re school entry as schools seem to start back earlier here after the summer than in London. We have looked into private schools and no chance of a place at the cheaper ones and St. George’s and BIS would just about be affordable if it were not for the extortionate initial entrance fees. So we are thinking of state schools. My children speak no German (I speak a bit having studied it and living in Hamburg for a year though that was a very long time ago). It would be throwing them in at the deep end but people do that in London all the time and the kids are fine. I wonder though whether there are any areas/schools where there might be more English speakers than others? My husband is going to be working in Nymphenburger Straße which is central, slightly west. Any tips on areas to live in which might be easy on public transport for him, have good state schools and maybe some English speaking kids to ease the transition for our kids? Also I am a speech and language therapist and want to work in Germany at some point soon. This might be a topic for another post though...

Hello..How are you getting on with your life in Germany??  We are also moving in a week's time.  My husband works in Allianz and we have 2 daughters aged 12 and 6. We found a temporary apartment in Gauting but is still struggling with school admissions.  My 6 year old is okay to be put in state schools,  but i am really concerned about my elder one as she might have to do an integration course for 1 year.  I really would like anything regarding the schools she can go to. Both dont speak German.

this is a possible wrong topic, still, dare I ask

 

 would anyone tell me what is the average charge (all of the fees included) in MIS?

I reckon it is something in the area of 25K per year before school bus (3.5-4K) and extra activities.

 

Am I correct?
