Registration and Admission
The concept of the Josef Schwarz School includes an expensive bilingual educational program. Based on the so-called immersion method, the English language is taught by qualified native speakers/teachers. The language acquisition takes place in particular in immersion lessons that go beyond the timetable of comparable institutions. The special profile of JSS is further realised by accompanying elements: Assistant Teachers, School Coaching, Talent Coaching, Individual Funding (IFF), Guided Reading Programme, open learn houses in the Secondary School until 6 p.m.
The school receives no state funding for this increased effort and therefore charges an additional, voluntary, income-related profile contribution for its bilingual education.
Registrations are only possible online via our Online Application Form.
We recommend that you register your child as soon as possible, due to the great demand.
Trial Days are generally held between February and April. Additional information are available on our website under “Admissions Procedure”.
Placement offers are sent at the end of May/beginning of June.
Personal introductions outside of our school Trial Days are only possible if you are moving to the area or if you are applying for a transfer during the school year. Otherwise you can register for an Information Evening on our homepage.
Basically, transfers into every grade level are possible. Prerequisites are that (a) space is available in the desired class, and (b) we have verified, after one or two trial days, that your child is able to handle the special challenges of a bilingual school.
Yes, you must register your child at a public/state school. If you receive a placement offer and sign a contract with the Josef-Schwarz-Schule, you can withdraw your registration at the public/state school.
A registration is possible in principle; however each case must be reviewed and considered individually. Knowledge of at least one of the two languages of instruction is definitely a great advantage.
In order to calculate your school fees, we will ask that you complete a form listing your types of income and submit a copy of your Income Tax Return for the appropriate year. School fees are calculated based upon your income tax return from the year before last year.
We are a private school open to the public and all registrations are handled equally.
No, parents are not required to be employed by the Schwarz Group.
Sibling children do have priority, however siblings are also invited to our Trial Days and we will verify that the school concept is also a good fit for the child.
If your child has been accepted into the Reception class, no additional registration is required for the first grade. Because the “Reception” class is formally a Kindergarten class, there are different school contracts for Reception and Primary School. Although we seek to offer all Reception children a place in the first grade, it is not always in the child’s interest or possible/sensible to do so.
Theoretically, yes; however we generally do not offer placement to children who have already received an unfavorable decision.
