Life in Zug with young family

Hello could anyone give me the benefit of their experience of life in Zug for a young family. We don't speak German...yet quite good French and English . We would probably be staying for quite a few years. so any advice on local school versus international would be welcome. How does it compare to say Lausanne?
My eldest son is dyslexic He is six . Would he be better in the international school. I would be so grateful for any help on any of these issues
many thanks
Rachel

Zug is very international, there is great percentage of the population who speak English.

The Zoug International School is a good choice, not cheap but good.

Zug is amazing! It's a beautiful canton and they've done a great job to capture both the traditional side of Switzerland and the modern, industrialised part. However, I suggest you take up an international school.

Just to let you know the public school is free for children and they are just as school, also it gives the opportunities for your children to learn German which is very important if you live in Switzerland for more than a year or two.

Re: Life in Zug with young family

Zug is just a great place for Kids and there is a specific mums and Kids Group, take a look at the yahoo 'ex pats of zug' Group. This is a great source of local Information.
As for Schools, there are plenty to choose from, both local and international. Four Forest on the border of Cham/Zug/Steinhausen, does one week German and the next English. I think some of the other International Schools do similar.
Also take a look at the 'zug4you' Website. There is an Event on Thursday 29th, you can find the Details on their Website.
Good luck and welcome to a wonderful Zug....
