Admission

Thank you for your interest in the SISS Primary.

The State International School (SISS) is the only State International School in Hesse. This means that the school follows the educational and administrative regulations of the State of Hesse in Germany.

Children in Germany begin their primary education when they reach six/seven years of age; the cutoff date for school beginners in the State of Hesse is the 30th June. Children who turn six after the 30th June will start school in August of the following year.

At the SISS, we accept students after a two day assessment visit. The main criteria for acceptance at the SISS are English language abilities. General school readiness is a requirement for those children who are applying for Flexible Lower Primary Year1.

Please read “conditions of admission” and “process of application” for further information about the admission for our school.
