German to English translations [Non-PRO] Social Sciences - Education / Pedagogy / diploma
German term or phrase:Volksschule
Diploma of completion of the 10th Form of the school in Burgermeister - Prandl - Germany
Is it the equivalent of junior high school? Primary school ?
Thanks in advance
I did some research and the found the school's website. This is simply the old name of his school and Volksschule in this case is not related to any diploma. 10th grade and Volksschule wouldn't match anyway, right? http://www.hauptschule-penzberg.de/
Thanks, David - I think we all agree on that, then, that primary school would usually be until age 10 or 11, so a primary school wouldn't have a tenth form (my primary school had 6 forms and I think that's usual for the UK).
