Primary School recommendation in Frankfurt and surrouding

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

We are starting with the expedition to search for a school for our daughter. There are plenty of options that we found but at the same time none.

We would prefer that she goes to a state school given that she is in a private English kindergarten but not sure what are the possibilities here. Appreciate any assistance or recommendations.

 

Easiest would be starting in a bi-lingual school until she grasps the German language and then moves to a German school. There are Phorms and Accadis. Anyone has experience with these schools, which might be better than the other and why? Although most of the kids in her class go to Phorms, I am not sure to decide based on only the other kids. It would be definitely nice to have familiar faces around but not sure if this is enough.

 

Another option is to go to German private schools and I don't think there are lots of options. The ones that I found are Anna-Schmidt Schule in Frankfurt and Ecoschool in Schmitten. Both look good. Anna-Schmidt doesn't have a preschool which means that she has to wait for an additional year at the kindergarten. Ecoschool is also good but I am not sure if Montessori is the direction. She is in a Montessori kindergarten and it is great but some say that kids don't learn that much if they have the option not to.

 

As for state schools, we are willing to move anywhere in Frankfurt, Bad Homburg, etc.. if we know that there is a good school with Vorschule. It might be the optimal theoretical option where she'll fit in the society, learn the language and save some or even lots of expenses.

 

Thank you in advance and looking forward to your replies!

I do not have kids but I know a person who sends her child to Phorms and loves it. The child speaks fluently in German and English. Her parents are Indian and speak their mother-language at home, hence her child is trilingual. I hope you find more information.
