Preparing to enter the district school

The path to the future starts early.

When students enter the district school, all doors are open to them. They can later enter the gymnasium (Canton school) and get the Matura certificate. Entering the district school is particularly important because it is nearly impossible to transfer to the gymnasium from regular secondary school.

There is no entrance examination in the canton of Aargau. Transfer from the 6th year of primary to district school or secondary school is determined solely by recommendation. In order to receive a recommendation from the teacher, a student must show consistently good performance. A high score on check P5, which is given in the 2nd semester of the 5th year, is also important.

Thanks to our many years of experience, we can provide students with timely and professional support during this first step into their futures. We help students create a foundation of knowledge, so they can start the district school with confidence.

Parent meeting

After the spring holiday, the selection process begins. Parents are invited to a meeting with the teacher. At the end of the meeting, the teacher lets the parents know which school level their child is being recommended for.

Recommendation

 

 

 

 

A new method of evaluating progress

Over the course of two weeks in September, the assessment tests Check P3 and Check P5 are held. The Checks are given to all 3rd and 5th year primary students in the cantons of Aargau, Basel-Landschaft, Basel-City, and Solothurn. The didactic concept behind the Checks and more info about the questions can be found at www.check-your-knowledge.ch. 

What are these test exactly, and how as they affect your child's education?

 

 

 

Transfer to the district - requirements

 

  In our preparatory courses, we prepare students reliably and competently for the transfer to the district school.

Changing track in the upper level

Many parents become very anxious when their children do not make it into district school after the end of 6th year, and must enter secondary school after the summer holiday. Now is not the time to give up! It is possible to change schools during the upper level! Since the 2016/2017 school year, the following new rules are had been in effect:

What does this mean?
It is important not to throw in the towel if the meeting with your child's 6th-year teacher does not go as desired. On the contrary, investing in your child's education is more important than ever. Your child may be able to improve his or her school performance so markedly that he or she is in fact recommended for district school. Or, you may be able to provide a solid foundation for switching from secondary to district school without losing time!

Ready for district school?

The decision to admit a child to a district school is not based solely on marks.
The following qualities should be evident:

Preparation for district and secondary school

There are no longer any entrance examinations, the transfer from the primary school to the district or the secondary school takes place exclusively via the recommendation procedure. Those who want to transfer to the district must show consistently good performance and score particularly well in the P5 check. Our courses are perfectly adapted to the new transfer procedure.

When is the sec. correct?

Your child has good grades but still does not get into the district school?

Maybe the student has studied for exams with a lot of perseverance and the parents have always supported the child. Why does the teacher suggest the child for the Sek. despite grade 5?

In this case, the teacher does not trust the student to attend the district school.
