Educational Profile The educational system of Germany is underlying to continuous changes and reforms. Main point in the last years was the reorganization of the Gymnasium. The nine year education was changed in to an 8 year education to get the Abitur . Furthermore, the academic system had changed because of the Bologna reform. The degrees obtained are now called Bachelor and Masters. Compulsory School Attendance Germany has a compulsory school attendance law. This law requires school attendance, not just instruction, from age 6 until age 15. This helps explaining homeschooling is illegal in Germany. Educational Class System The Germans entire educational system is basically a three-class system that divides students into three different tracks: 1. Gymnasium 2. Realschure 3. Hauptschule By the age of 10 most pupils in Germany have been put on one of these three educational tracks. Although it is possible to switch tracks, this is not very common.

Slide 11:

Preschools in Germany The German preschool system varies from state to state, but in general, it works this way: * Kinderkrippe (literally, “crib” or “ cheche ”) for ages eight weeks to three years * Kita(short for kindertagessatatte ) ( childrens day care center) for ages 3-6 * Kindergarten for ages 3-6, halfday or full day kindergarten * Hort or Schulhort provides afterschool daycare for elementary school pupils. Elementary Schools in Germany After preschool, German pupils attend primary school ( Grundschule , “basic school”, grades 1-4) Compulsory attendance starts in September after a child has turned 6 All students attend elementary school from grade 1 to grade 4 in most states. Before beginning the 5thy grade, students and their parent must choose the type of secondary school they will attend, in other words, which educational track they will be on.

After completing their primary education (at age 10 years of age), children attend one of five types of secondary schools in Germany. The five kinds of schools may vary from state to state in Germany. 1. Hauptschule (HOWPT-shoo- luh ) grades 5-9 or 5-10 * Generally considered the least demanding of the five types of secondary school, but it may be very appropriate for students who wish to enter the trades or go through an apprenticeship for certain types of industrial employment. * Prepare pupils for vocational education, and most of the pupils work part-time as apprenticeship. 2. Realschule (Ray-all-shoo- luh ) grades 5-10 * Most popular types of secondary schools in Germany, about 40 percent of German pupils attend this kind of school. * Maybe a step below Gymnasium, but it can be a very good school with academic standards that usually exceed those of a typical high school in the US * Students must study at least one foreign language(usually English or French) for a minimum f 5 years. 3. Mittelschure (MIT- tel -shoo- luh , grades 5-10) Only some german states have this type of intermediate school (grades 6-10) that combines the Hauptschule and Realschule tracks.

Popular fields such as law and medicine are very competitive. Students often have to choose a second or third choice fir their major, or have to enroll in a move distant university than they might prefer. 5. Gesamtschule (gun-SAHMT-shoo- luh , grades 5-12 or 5-13) * Only some German states have this kind of school, which combines the three school types into a comprehensive school that is similar to an American high school.
