Schools & Education

The structure of the district is characterized by small elementary schools, elementary, junior high and high schools, the so-called middle schools, four classical high schools, two cooperative and one integrated comprehensive school, six public special schools and two vocational schools, one of which has a vocational high school. The Schools and Education Department is the school authority and responsible for all school planning matters, such as school development, school organization, student transportation, school districts, school construction and school space programs.

In addition, the specialized service is responsible for ensuring care and all-day programs for a reliable school, school social work, pro-occupational orientation, and cooperation with other educational institutions such as the legally independent vocational schools, the Technical University of Central Hesse, and the School & Business Working Group.

A particular concern of the Schools and Education department is to further develop the educational landscape of the Waldeck-Frankenberg district. The regional Hessencampus, projects in the field of vocational orientation and further education, but also the objectives of inclusion serve this purpose.
