Swiss Baccalaureate

In Grades 6-8 students are to attend preparatory classes. These years in our bilingual hybrid classes (IB combined with Swiss Baccalaureate) lay the foundation for a successful Swiss Baccalaureate education. Upon completion of this phase, a student can be admitted to the Swiss Baccalaureate section or continue with the IB Middle Years Programme. The final decision to join the Swiss Baccalaureate section is taken by the end of Grade 8 and is subject to sufficient numbers of students selecting and being admitted to this academically demanding pathway. The curriculum then covers eleven basic subjects, one specialist option (starting Grade 9) and one supplementary option (starting Grade 10).
