Around 83,000 students have registered for the coming year at secondary public schools in Baden-Württemberg. With around 37,500 registrations, the grammar school is right at the top of the popularity scale. More than 45 percent of the students who switch from elementary school to fifth grade decided on the type of school, as the Ministry of Education announced on Wednesday.

While the number of enrollments at grammar schools and community schools has increased slightly compared to the previous year, the numbers at Hauptschule and Werkrealschulen as well as Realschulen have fallen. Refugee students from Ukraine are not included in the figures, since they were collected in March.
