Education in Dietikon
Hello there,

This thread (http://www.englishforum.ch/housing-g...-thoughts.html) from more than a year caused me a sleepless night, so I wanted to dig it and hopefully get actual information of nowadays.

I just started work in Baden. I signed a rental contract for an appartment on the riverside of Dietikon and my wife and daughter (10) will arrive in 5 weeks.

Before signing the contract, my relocation agent did not comment me about the schools in Dietikon:msnmad:. After reading the above thread, I walked around and talked to ordinary people of Dietikon. They all confirmed the low quality of school and teachers.

I am extremely concerned about the mentioned situation of schools in Dietikon (my daughter is supposed to go to Zentralschule due to our address). My daughter is an extremely successful kid with the best grades, attends a swimming club, plays the piano etc. in our homeland. She definitely wants to go to Gymnasium in the future and has the capacity to do that. I don't want to spoil her life with my bad decisions.

For those who share their information and experiences, will go to heaven:). How can I increase her chance for Gymnasium in the next years? Should I already change my address? Any advice?

Is your daughter already fluent in German?

Re: Education in Dietikon
She is taking - for the last 5 months - private German lessons from a German teacher who was born and raised until University in Switzerland.
She has progressed a lot, and I'm sure she will make it fluent in short time after she arrives here.
