Welcome to the website of the European School Frankfurt
The European Schools are official educational institutions established in the 1950s and jointly supervised/run by the governments of the Member States of the European Union. They are state schools in their respective host countries. The European School Frankfurt (ESF) is one of 13 schools in six countries (Belgium, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Spain) and was opened in 2002.
The school offers quality education from nursery to the European Baccalaureate in a multicultural and multilingual environment.
The construction of the new European School Frankfurt has been on the agenda for many years, the future pupil forecast and the space requirements were officially recognised by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) a couple of years ago, but unfortunately a suitable site has still not not been found yet.
Karolien De Wilde, teacher of Dutch L1, had her students participate in a translation contest. The contest was organised by an organisation for Dutch language teachers. The assignment was to translate the poem ‘Telescope’ from Louise Glück, Nobelprize winner of literature 2020, into Dutch.
The motifs of our Christmas cards were designed by pupils of the secondary school. The money from the sale goes to the Bärenherz Foundation. This foundation supports facilities for families with children who are suffering from incurable diseases and have a short life expectancy, especially children's hospices.
