Instruction at the Swiss School follows the Curriculum of the Canton of Zug and provides a well-rounded education in German and English.
At age 2, our youngest students begin their school education in Little Tots. Up to age 5 (Playgroup II), they are primarily instructed in English with German being introduced gradually. Playgroups I und II are conducted as mixed-age classes.
Thereafter, students start Kindergarten, which is part of the Primary School. This corresponds to the second Kindergarten year in the Swiss school system. Swiss home room teachers and English-speaking specialist subject teachers prepare students for Primary 1 in both German and English.
In Primary 1, reading and writing will be taught in German and English. Supplementary subjects such as Science and Swimming are taught in English. Moving into the higher grades, English gradually increases, providing a smooth transition from Primary 6 to the United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA).
