SISS seeheim-jugenheim Experience

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

We have recently moved to Germany( Seeheim) and my kid will turn 6 this year. We are here for the next three or four years and are looking for an international school for our daughter. Does anyone has any direct experience with school? How difficult is it to get admission into the school as I heard the school has a long waiting list and the only criteria is fluency in English. And also what if the child can understand English very well but speaks with a few grammar mistakes(as we dont come from a English speaking country), will the child be denied admission? Has anyone ever been denied admission in the SISS school?

The other international schools are very expensive for us and the few bilingual schools(in Frankfurt) that we have applied have a long waiting list. I am quite worried.

Have you been to the school for a tour and to ask your questions? Maybe they can make recommendations if they're full.

Yeah I have applied to the school and my child will go for assessment but it's the assessment I am worried about as the selection is purely based on the language skills.

I don't think that anyone here can say whether or not she will be denied. Just go and see and good luck. I'm sure there will be other children from non English speaking countries applying.

 

Does your company not pay for bi-lingual schools when they transfer to you to foreign countries? My ex's company did but I know things have changed since then.

No. My company will not pay anything and international schools are very expensive in Germany.
