Schools in Halle

General Information

The school system in Halle is subdivided into the primary and secondary section (similar to the distinction between primary and secondary schools). The primary section includes elementary school from first to fourth grade. The secondary section is split again into two sections: the secondary section I is composed of the classes 5-10 or 5-9 (at grammar schools, called “Gymnasium”) and the evening intermediate school. The secondary section II includes the classes 10-12 at grammar schools, vocational schools, evening grammar schools and colleges.

The city of Halle provides information concerning the German school system    and the different kinds of schools on its website.

You can translate all the texts on the city's website by highlighting the parts you'd like to translate and then using the "Übersetzung" feature that pops up. You can then select your preferred language.
