Accredited German school / IB World School

Our elementary school encompasses grades 1-4. The structure and organization is very similar to elementary schools in Germany. Lessons go from 8am to 2.30pm (Thursdays: 1.40pm). Teaching content is based on German curricula. In addition, and as per our school license agreement with the Kurdish Ministry of Education, we teach a few subjects in Kurdish (Kurdish language, religion, social studies) and Arabic (language).

 

Our curriculum in elementary school consists of the following subjects:

German

5 lessons per week

German (supplement)

2 lessons per week

Math

Natural sciences

Kurdish (language)

Children with limited German language skills receive additional support. During the school year we celebrate both German and Kurdish holdiays.

Are you moving / returning to Kurdistan? Changing over to our school from any elementary school in Germany (or a school in which German was a primary language of instruction) is in most cases possible at any time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our administration for an appointment.
