The FINTOSCH Primary School is a logical continuation of the Fintosch concept of early childhood development. Nursery, kindergarten and primary school (with entry level) under one roof.

The teaching is based on the immersion method, whereby the German and international curriculum (IPC) are united. We teach in German and English (50% / 50%) with another third foreign language from the 3rd grade. Free choice after 4th grade in the German or English school system.

In addition to the primary school program and the Hessian Education and Development Plan (Hessischer Bildungs-und Erziehungsplan), the International Primary Curriculum is not only theoretically integrated into the pedagogical concept from the entry level, but also used as a concrete part of the daily work in the multilingual primary school.

The IPC comes from England and was developed by Fieldwork Education in London. The IPC was designed to meet the requirements and needs of the curriculum of international schools. It is consistently practical, multilingual and prepares for life. In addition to developing an international understanding, it helps children to develop and build up knowledge, learning strategies and cognitive skills.
