After having completed Primary School, students enter into the Secondary School that consists of three levels:
Gymnasium (higher performance level)
Swiss Sekundarschule/German Realschule (medium perfomance level)
Swiss Realschule/German Hauptschule (lower performance level)
The entrance level of a student depends on his/her academic performance, but also on discussions with the student and his/her parents as well as thorough observation by his/her Grade 5 and 6 teachers who base their recommendation on a comprehensive assessment of the individual student's entire development process and situation (study results, average, working speed, capacity, endurance, concentration, working technique, motivation, social aspects and self-assessment).
Depending on the development of their performance level, students may change into a different one at the end of each school year..
