Schools in Dresden
Dresden's schools offer children and young people the most varied paths to achieve their individually defined objectives.
There are several important decisions to be made by families as their children progress through school.
School-beginners are already able to choose between municipal schools and alternatives offered by a number of independent organisations.
Secondary school or grammar school?
At the end of primary school, during the fourth school year, decisions are made on whether the pupils are to move on to a secondary school or to a grammar school. In both cases, they can choose a school which offers general specialisations to suit their particular interests and aptitudes.
Trainee or student?
The young people already begin to clarify their future plans well before actually leaving school. Career wishes determine the examinations to be taken and applications for vocational training placements or university studies are placed in the foreground.
