Overview Primary

In Switzerland and Germany, Primary School is the first stage of compulsory education stretching over 6 years. It is preceded by preschool, Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten education.

The Basis Level promotes a smooth progress from Kindergarten into Grade 1.  After Basis Level, children continue in Primary School from Grades 1 to 6.

At the end of Primary School, students transfer into one of the three Secondary levels – Swiss Realschule/German Hauptschule, Swiss Sekundarschule/German Realschule or Gymnasium – depending on their academic and personal performance and development levels.
