Compulsory schooling in Germany includes all children from the age of six. In Berlin and in Brandenburg the primary school (germ. Grundschule) lasts six years and is followed by different forms of further education children may choose from. The school may offer additional German lessons to the children with a first language other than German. If you have a school-aged child, please contact Family Representative.
