Schools in Hannover

Dear Hannover list,

Thank you so much for your information on schools, Hans Peter Albers.
Fascinating. Do you or anyone on the list know what a "Hauptschule" would be? I
saw this in 1840s records, Osten, Hannover. I assume that it is older
levels. Is that correct?

Thank you for your help.


Haupt = Main, Schule = School, or the main school. However, the dictionary
translates it as "Intermediate School". "Hochschule" (high school) is the
equivalent of college in Germany. I'm guessing that it is between elementary
school and "Hochschule."
