anonymous asked:

Can you thoroughly explain the German school system from the start? And do you think it's good/what are its flaws/etc? Thanks!

Children aged three to six, may attend kindergarten. After that, school is compulsory for nine or ten years. From grades 1 through 4 children attend elementary school (Grundschule), where the subjects taught are the same for all. Then, after the 4th grade, they are separated according to their academic ability and the wishes of their families, and attend one of three different kinds of schools: Hauptschule, Realschule or Gymnasium.Grundschule teachers recommend their students to a particular school based on such things as academic achievement, self-confidence and ability to work independently. However, in most states, parents have the final say as to which school their child attends following the fourth grade.

The Hauptschule (grades 5-9) teaches the same subjects as the Realschule andGymnasium, but at a slower pace and with some vocational-oriented courses. It leads to part-time enrollment in a vocational school combined with apprenticeship training until the age of 18.

The Realschule (grades 5-10 in most states) leads to part-time vocational schools and higher vocational schools. It is now possible for students with high academic achievement at the Realschule to switch to a Gymnasium on graduation.

The Gymnasium leads to a diploma called the Abitur and prepares students for university study or for a dual academic and vocational credential. Curricula differ from school to school, but generally include German, mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, geography, art (as well as crafts and design), music, history, philosophy, civics, social studies, and several foreign languages. In recent years many States have changed the curriculum so students can get the “Abi” at the end of the 12th grade. Other States are making the transition but may still require a 13th grade.

The Gesamtschule, or comprehensive school, is only found in some of the states. It takes the place of the Hauptschule, Realschule and Gymnasium at once.

Beyond the Hauptschule and Realschule lies the Berufsschule, combining part-time academic study and apprenticeship. The successful completion of an apprenticeship program leads to certification in a particular trade or field of work. These schools differ from the other ones mentioned in that control rests not with the local and regional school authorities, but with the federal government, industry and the trade unions.

No matter what kind of school a student attends, they must complete at least nine years of education. A student dropping out of a Gymnasium, for example, must enroll in a Realschule or Hauptschule until nine years have been completed. Students are required to study at minimum one foreign language for at least five years. A second foreign language is required in Gymnasium.

There are different schools for students with special needs called Sonderschule or Förderschule. Depending on the individual’s needs and a school’s availability, a student can attend one of the special schools. These schools are staffed with specially trained teachers and generally have a smaller student to teacher ratio than the regular schools. Some special needs students don’t attend these schools and are integrated into a Hauptschule or Gesamtschule.

There also are a number of different types of private schools in Germany. These schools usually charge tuition and may offer varied courses leading to the German Abitur as well as other diplomas and certificates at the conclusion of studies.

The Internat are German boarding schools. There are several hundreds of them in Germany offering a variety of study programs. Most offer the Abitur and may offer additional specialized courses in different subjects or pursuits. There are sports Internat, music Internat as well as Internat that specialize in other areas. There are also some separate boarding schools for boys and girls.

Lastly, the several dozen International Schools in Germany normally offer courses in English leading to an IBO or other diploma or certificate that allows the students to continue on to college or university.

(Home schooling btw  is illegal in Germany. The law requiring students to attend public schools or approved private schools has been upheld despite challenges to it.)  

As for flaws, I don’t know I think they’re supposed to make it possible for all kids to study up to university level, regardless of their families’ financial status and stuff but the grade of your education still depends a lot from where “you’re from.” I don’t know, apart from that I’m actually quite pleased with out school system ;;
