Compulsory Education

Like everywhere in Germany, in Baden-Wuerttemberg, your child must attend school. This is called compulsory education. Compulsory education begins when your child is six years old. Then your child must go to elementary school (Grundschule). If your child has a disability, there is also the possibility that he or she attend a special needs school (Sonderpädagogische Bildungs- und Beratungszentrum, SBBZ).

Your child must attend school until the age of 18. Afterwards, your child is no longer required to attend school, although he or she may continue if desired.

General Schools

Elementary School (Grundschule) – the first four years of school (grades 1-4). Normally for children aged 6 to 10.

Secondary Schools
Hauptschule – Grades 5-9, follows elementary school. Normally for children aged 11 – 15. Here, your child can obtain a basic school qualification (Hauptschulabschluss).

Werkrealschule – Grades 5-10; follows elementary school. Normally for children aged 11-16. At the end of 9th grade, a student may obtain a basic school qualification (Hauptschulabschluss) or at the end of 10th grade an intermediate school-leaving certificate (Mittlere Reife).

Realschule – Grades 5-10; follows elementary school. Normally for children aged 11-16. At the end of 10th grade after taking a test, your child obtains an intermediate school-leaving certificate (Mittlere Reife). A child can also take a test after the 9th grade to obtain a basic school qualification (Hauptschulabschluss).

Gymnasium – Grades 5-12/13. Your child attends a Gymnasium for either eight or nine years. Normally for children aged 11 – 18. After a test, your child obtains a baccalaureate (Abitur / Hochschulreife) and can then study at a university. A child can also take a test after the 10th grade to obtain an intermediate school-leaving certificate (Mittlere Reife).

Gemeinschaftsschule – Grades 5-13. This school combines the various modules from the Hauptschule, Realschule, and Gymnasium. The children are instructed based on their personal talents. For example: Math at the Gymnasium-level and Science at the Realschule-level. However, your child is only allowed to obtain one certificate: a basic school qualification (Hauptschulabschluss), an intermediate school-leaving certificate (Mittlere Reife), or a baccalaureate (Hochschulreife / Abitur)

Other Types of Schools

Vocational Schools – These schools have a specific occupational-focused emphasis (for example commercial, technical, agricultural). Occupational-specific knowledge is incorporated into the curriculum. All forms of school-leaving certificates may be obtained at the vocational schools, or your child could obtain a more advanced certificate. In case your child needs help learning the German language, he or she can go to a special VABO-Class, where German is taught.
VABO Locations

Special Needs Schools (Sonderpädagogisches Bildungs- und Beratungszentrum) – a school for students, who because of a disability cannot attend the general schools.
