Minerva School Basel - University Track

The year group terms refer to the new Swiss system comprising 11 years including 2 years of Kindergarten. Year 7 refers to UK year 5 and US Grade 5 approximately.

The Minerva School Basel’s Progymnasium PLUS (University Track) prepares students over three years for a gymnasium or other continuing schooling.

In addition to the traditional Progymnasium program, the Minerva school gives particular emphasis to:

Immersion teaching: In addition to English as a second language teaching (five lessons per week), English is used as the teaching and conversation language in several subjects.
In addition we offer English language instruction for native speakers.

The integration of modern information technology in the daily life of our school: Supported by a well-thought-out educational concept, students learn to employ their personal laptop as a useful tool at home and at school.

Our modern and proven day school programme is further enhanced by a special tutoring concept, coaching lessons, and training in work and study skills.
Excellent English and ICT skills offer students at the private Minerva School enormous advantages for their continuing studies or training.
