International Schools in Munich

When raising a family in Munich, one of the most important decisions is which school (and indeed which school system) to choose for your children. Munich has several bilingual and international schools, following different curriculums to cater to the city’s diverse expat community. 

 

For little ones, the International Kids Campus is a highly regarded bilingual nursery and pre-school for children aged 2 to 6, combining the English-language primary years programme with the German Bayerischer Bildungs- und Erziehungsplan, ensuring an even balance between the two languages. 

 

Despite its French title, The Jules Verne Campus is a state-approved fee paying elementary and high school (gymnasium) following the Bavarian Curriculum with full English language immersion. Older pupils work towards the German Abitur qualification.
