Secondary and Gymnasium choice after moving to seebach

Hi All

We will be soon moving to zurich seebach from another kanton with our two dougters 12 and 8 years old

I have been searching forum threads but could not find this details

My elder daughter now has an option to go to secondary from my current kanton
But she also is keen to prepare for gymnasium test

But it may not be possible this year as we are in between of relocating and this may not be right time to prepare for untergymnasium

- do we get an option to select different school if there are no good schools around my new address
- I have looked up seebach schools on google and asked about them and I have mixed response
- can my daughter still attempt gymnasium next year and will we have English or German option as French may be difficult for her

Could someone help us on these and share your experience

best is to visit a cantonal school... they will explain in detail

You do not get an option of selecting a different school around your new address, the kids get assigned, and possibly even to different schools. I would not worry too much about "no good" schools, all schools are generally good (but what constitutes good may differ from one parent to the next), individual teachers in each school may be better than others, but that can happen in any school.

Your daughter can attend kurzzeit gym later on, so if she does not get in right now, it is not a big deal.

There will be a German option, there is also a bilingual option for Gymi German/English, but she may have to travel further. French is the 2nd foreign language taught in Zurich.
