Is there anything else I should know about local schools? What types of schools do most expats in your city choose for their children? If your children are over 10 years old and do not speak any German, an international school is a popular choice. There are also schools that teach in German and English, which is also highly recommended. Public schools are free whereas at an international school you have to pay tuition fees. ↑ Top What are some examples of these schools?

There are mostly no waiting lists for local schools, but please check with Crown Vienna for current information on the schools you're interested in. ↑ Top Are pre-schools also widely available (for children approx. 2 to 5 years old)? Yes. ↑ Top How are most kids transported to and from school? There is no general mode of transportation: Some children walk to school - depending on where they live - or are dropped off and picked up again by their parents. Some schools operate school bus transportation. As Vienna has well connected public transportation and is mostly a very safe city, a lot of school children use public transportation each day. ↑ Top When does the typical school year start and end? Public schools in Vienna run from the first Monday in September until July of the next year. Private international schools operate from the middle of August to the end of June. ↑ Top Is there anything else I should know about local schools? Kindergarten, elementary and grammar school (high school) education are mostly provided free. In Austria, the district education office takes care of enrollment but your Crown Vienna Relocation Consultant will be delighted to assist you where needed and requested. ↑ Top IMPORTANT NOTE: Crown Relocations has made every effort to present accurate information.
