Minerva Schulen Basel AG – a Leader in Switzerland’s North-West
Minerva School is a full-time day school and ranks among the leading private schools in Switzerland’s North-West. The school with its 100-yearplus history owes its friendly atmosphere to its motivating and idyllic learning surroundings spanning two locations, its inspiring and forwardlooking course content as well as its seasoned team of qualified teachers.

Its facilities include a Kindergarten starting at 3 years, a Primary School as well as all the Lower Secondary streams (A, E, P). In its bilingual Kindergarten, its Primary School and the P stream in Lower Secondary School, children and adolescents are taught both through German and English. This school concept at Minerva School is complemented by a variety of specialty and support courses, such as workshops for gifted students.

Enabling students to come into their own, coupling joie de vivre and the willingness to perform and developing social skills – these are the main objectives Minerva School, a member of the Kalaidos Education Group since 2002, sets out to achieve.
