Education in Greenland
Education in Greenland is similar to the Danish educational system. There have been recent efforts to make the education system more local. Instruction is bilingual with most materials in Danish.
All children in Greenland are entitled to ten years of compulsory education and attend school from the age of six to 16. School is split into three levels: three-years for primary, than four-years for middle school, and three-years for senior school. At the end of the third level, final assessments are conducted and leaving certificates issued.

Admission and enrollment procedures vary from school to school. Space is often limited and preference may be given to students based on nationality. Tuition tends to be expensive based on local standards, but offers high standards of learning, boast smaller class sizes, first-rate facilities, and extracurricular.
