Schooling and Education

The education system in Luxembourg: information includes all the stages from creche to pre-primary, primary and secondary education and international schooling...

Newcomers to Luxembourg essentially have two options when it comes to education, either to enrol their child in a state or private school or to enrol them in an international school. The majority of children attend state schools. Only a small number of schools provide a linguistic and/or pedagogical alternative. Education is carried out in the three official languages: Luxembourgish, French and German. Education is compulsory for all children aged between 4 and 16. Younger children may attend nursery schools. No child can be refused education for reasons of race, sex, language, religion or legal status of the parents. For more on Luxembourg's Education System
