The elementary school is for grades Pre-Kindergarten-2, the intermediate school is for grades 3-5, the middle school is for grades 5-8 and the high school is for grades 9-12.

Check out the DoDD Schools fact sheet for information on each school, to include registration requirements and dates, or the DoDDs-Europe Web site.

Keep in mind, where you live is where your children will go to school, so check out the KMC school zoning pamphlet to ensure you understand how the schools are broken out amongst the villages.

Private Schools
Americans can use the local German schools; however German language skills are needed beyond kindergarten. German kindergartens are the most frequently used of all the German programs by Americans. The older the child, the more German language skills are necessary.
