The Secondary School

The Secondary School cycle of the European School Frankfurt covers seven school years. In order to become certified for the 1st secondary class (S1), the pupil must be 11 years old by the end of the calendar year and must have completed the Primary School cycle of the European School or another comparable school.

Focus areas of the education at the European School are: detailed language study, the intercultural exchange between the students from many European countries and not least the development and encouragement of scientific work. Besides main tuition in the languages of the 4 sections - German, English, French and Italian - students can be taught in up to 4 foreign languages during the Secondary School cycle (Subject Options).

Students are regularly engaged in numerous projects - art, music, theatre and sport - and are energetically supported by their teachers.

Students receive reports at the end of each semester: in January and at the end of the school year. In addition there are intermediate evaluations in November and in April.

Beside the school education and starting from the 5th Secondary grade (S5), students develop skills needed to prepare for working life. Part of this consists of a working placement completed by students in grade S5 and an intensive consultation among study and job prospects („Careers guidance“).


In order to become certified for the European Baccalauréat examination, students must have attended the two last classes of the Secondary School (S6, S7) in a European School.
Beside the compulsory subjects (LI = mother tongue, L II = first foreign language, a scientific subject, philosophy, sport, history and geography) the students have a broad spectrum of further options. They can choose two-hour, four-hour or advanced courses.

The European Baccalauréat certificate is recognized in all member states of the European Union as well as in many other countries. The owners of the European Baccalauréat certification have the same right to be admitted to universities in the member states of the European Union as citizens of the country concerned with comparable qualifications (BAC).
