European School

The European school is open to children aged 4 to 18 years old, throughout their school curriculum: kindergarten, then primary cycle until the end of the secondary cycle. The graduation certificate from the European School is the European Baccalaureate recognized throughout Europe.

Schola Europa has two campuses: one in Kirchberg, European School I, the other in Mamer European School II, depending on the parents’ place of residence and the school section chosen.

School curriculum

The 2 European Schools I and II offer the 3 cycles of kindergarten, primary and secondary and each offer an English, French and German section. Irish is taught in both schools.

The European School I welcomes primarily Bulgarian, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish native language students. The European School II welcomes, as a priority Czech, Danish, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Maltese, Romanian, Slovene, Slovak and Croatian  students.

Children are mainly taught in their mother tongue, except in certain cases. The second language can be either English, French, or German. A third and sometimes fourth language are gradually introduced in secondary. Children who speak a language for which there is not a section can go into the English, French or German section.
In order to facilitate integration, language support classes are provided.

Given the high linguistic level of the children when they leave the school, which is widely recognised by many European Universities, it means students are not required to take language entrance tests such as IELTS.

Admission

Priority is given to children whose parents are European civil servants but others can apply and be enrolled, according to seats.

Admission requests should be completed between April and May to start the following September. Parents will be informed mid July if they get a place. The Diploma, the European Baccalaureate is widely recognised in Europe.

There are 2 locations : Kircberg for European School I and Mamer for European School II, depending on your residence and languages.

Tuition fees vary according to 3 categories:

  • Category I: pupils whose parents are employed by one of the European institutions or an equivalent, these pupils are exempted from the payment of the minerval
  • category II: students whose parent is employed by a company or organization committed to paying the child’s tuition fees
  • category III: other pupils.
