Hi everyone! 

I have twins entering 8th grade in the USA.  We are starting to prepare for a potential move to Frankfurt.  Not this school year but starting school year 2019-2020.  

1) What are your experiences with the 3 main IB International school options in Frankfurt? 

 2) When should we start the admissions process?  How long is the waiting list for each school?  Should we be applying now for 2019-2020? 

Any advice with this is helpful. 

Thank you!

Hi there,

It's generally best to start the application process as early as possible, especially in a city like Frankfurt which, compared to larger cities in Germany such as Berlin, has relatively few international school options. Generally speaking, you can expect international schools in Frankfurt – especially the ones with the best reputations – to have long waiting lists. It's a good idea to contact individual schools to find out their application process, especially with regard to early applications.

You can find more information and advice on our International Schools in Frankfurt page.

Best of luck.
