If you’re enrolling your children at Metropolitan International School, you may have questions about tuition fee and scholarships. If you have a specific query that is not answered on these pages, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and we’ll answer them in person.
Registration and Application Fees
The application fee (50 €) is payable at the day of application. If the student is accepted to MIS, this fee will be deducted from the registration fee. The registration fee is a single payment made upon acceptance and confirmation of your child’s place at our school. At present, this registration fee is waived for any child joining from a school in the Viernheim, Heidelberg or Mannheim School, regardless of the proposed year of entry. In line with normal entry procedures, we ask for payment of € 2.500 per child to confirm their place.
Our tuition fees vary depending on Grade levels.
You can find out which grade is appropriate for your child here: (http://www.metroschool.de/en/application/grade-placement)
What do our tuition fees include?
All teaching resources required within the curriculum.
We have some school Chrome books available for younger children to use, we are a ‘Bring your own Device’ (BYOD) environment and recommend students from Grade 1 to bring a personal learning device to school with them every day. An iPad is our recommended device and you’ll find our list of required applications in the student/family handbook, given to families after enrollment.
Additional & Mandatory Expenses
During the school year, the children will enjoy a number of school field trips, the winter ski/snow sports programme and residential trips including a camp at the start of the academic year for Grades 3-12.

School fees are payable at least a month in advance of the beginning of the relevant term and may be reviewed annually.

Half of the contributions paid by parents are allotted to the school fees, the other half to the mentoring of the students. In accordance with current tax laws, this means: 30% of the school fees, 5.000€per child at most, are tax reducible as special expenses for parents. For children who are not 14 years old yet, and who have both parents working, parents can claim 2/3 (two thirds) of the mentoring costs, 4.000 € at most, as tax allowable expenses or deduction from taxable income. This information is given as endorsement without recurs, and in accordance with the best of our knowledge. Furthermore, we suggest you contact your tax advisor.
