Requirements for Admission

Assessment will take different forms based on grade level, expectations in such areas as academics, social and behavioral benchmarks and language development. All students in Grade 1 and above will be assessed in mathematics, reading, writing and speaking as part of the admissions process.

Please also include school reports and transcripts (translated into English or German), referral letters and psychological/neurological evaluations. In addition, the school may request confidential teacher references or individual student portfolios.

Early Years Confidential Statement Form – to be filled out by the current nursery or kindergarten.

Secondary Student Statement Form – completed in handwritten form by the student himself/herself

Student Medical Record Form – to be filled out by parents to give a quick overview of the applicant’s health

German is not a pre-requisite for admission to Metropolitan School Frankfurt.


Applicants with Specific Learning Needs

In order to access the curriculum, a place will only be offered if it is believed that the school can offer the appropriate support and that the educational programmes meet the student’s needs. When reviewing the application of a student with specific needs, the admissions team will take into consideration all students receiving additional learning support in that grade and additional consultation with the Learning Support specialists before a decision is made.


Requirements for Specific Grades

Kindergarten: Students entering KG Phase 1 must be fully toilet trained and be
able to speak and follow simple instructions. Candidates must be able to feed and dress themselves
independently

Grades 9 and 10: Students entering Grades 9 and 10 must be able to demonstrate English proficiency

Grade 11: Students should have a proficient level of English in order to access the curriculum. The Programme is an academic programme requiring proficiency in the English language as all instruction and course work are undertaken in English. To successfully transfer into Grade 11, students must have a “B” (or above) in their IGCSEs for their chosen subjects and a “C” (or above) in their subjects.

External students must sit entry exams in English and Mathematics as well as in their chosen Science in order to demonstrate their ability to access the curriculum.

Parents and students are asked to sign a subject choice selection form.

Acceptance of students is approved by the admissions team in consultation with the division leaders and the members of our School Leadership Team. The same rules apply to the acceptance of students from the Early Years Department into the Primary School, from the Primary to the Secondary School and from Grade 10 into Grade 11.
