International Schools in Frankfurt

 

When raising a family in Frankfurt, one of the most important decisions is which school (and indeed which school system) to choose for your children. The city has several excellent international schools for each stage of your child’s education, from bilingual nurseries to leading primary and middle schools and fantastic high schools offering a variety of different exam options to suit every teenager. 

 

Pre-school and early years options in Frankfurt include The Taunus International Montessori School in Oberursel, for English-speaking children aged 1-6 and the International Bilingual Montessori School. Both schools provide education within the Montessori framework.
