Pre-course for primary 5th grade

Individual support and preparation for the Gymnasium exam. Beginning in primary 5th grade.

Solidify German and maths skills

We are increasingly asked if primary year 6 is not too late to start preparing for secondary schools.

The targeted entrance exam prep for Gymnasium begins in the 6th year of primary school.
Many parents believe that the earlier their children begin practicing the exam questions, the better their chances of passing are.
Exam success depends to a measurable extent on the child's developmental level. We have little influence over this.

However, it is possible to begin studying for the exam early in order to improve current marks and awake a sense of joy in learning.

Why to begin in year 5

The effect of the pre-course on 5th-year students

Parents often ask themselves: when is the proper time to begin preparing for the next level of education?

The child should learn that constant, regular study is the key to success. This ensures that they do not have gaps in their understanding and are able to work on problem areas without rushing. The truth is that teachers prefer and encourage good students. The best students can build on this advantage.

If 5th-year teachers see Gymnasium in your child's future, your child can profit from special attention and become more confident. School is more fun when you understand the material. Homework is no longer a torment, instead becoming a way to confirm and solidify ability.

Due to a large number of parent requests, we now offer a pre-course for 5th-year primary students.

As usual, our courses are tightly run, led by excellent and motivated teachers and located centrally near Stadelhofen Train Station.

Every course covers different material, each tailored exactly to the school level. All prep courses are run with the same high expectations that the entrance exam represents.
