Welcome to the Primary school

For all parents, choosing the right school for their children is not an easy decision.

The European School Karlsruhe (ESK) is an international educational institution (from kindergarten to the European Baccalaureate) and welcomes many families from Karlsruhe, all over Baden-Württemberg and the neighboring federal states every year.

Taking into account their potential and the interest of each individual child the European School promotes linguistic, mathematical, scientific and creative skills. An extensive learning network that benefits children in the ESK ensures that every child receives the motivation needed during the formative years of his development.
