Renting near Baden or Brugg

Dear All,

Me and my family (wife and 6 years old - December son) need to move to this nice country from GB on end of March this year. Job place will be at Zürich Altstetten. After looking around and choosing location for living we stopped on Baden area (Baden it self and surrounding villages). Basically it is easy commute to working destination, but also leaves opportunity travel to Basel so my wife will have more choices in her job search in future. Also we prefer living in relatively quiet and rural regions.

But before renting any apartments we would like to ask You about good primary schools in that region and than narrow down the search for rent.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find any primary schools league/performance tables in Switzerland similar ones on BBC, Guardian, TimesOnline for UK. So could I ask You to advice us on good public primary schools from your or your friends experience in Baden area: Baden, Neuenhof, Ennetbaden, Obersiggenthal, Rieden, Wettingen etc.
I’ve seen topics at this forum where people complain about bad integration classes/programs, relatively “useless” teachers, bulling in schools, so ideally we would like to find a school without (or almost without) these attributes and than try to rent an apartment around. It also worth to mention that German language skills for all of us are just below 0.

Many thanks for your help and suggestions in advance.

Dear Losevnick,

I also plan to move to Baden / Ennetbaden and I saw your post.

Have you found any good primary school in that area that you can share with me?

Thank you very much

Re: Renting near Baden or Brugg

Hello guys, in Swizterland, you have to attend the school who is nearest to your home. So it is good that you search in advance before deciding the place to live, which is the primary school that the kids from the neighborhood attend. Baden has a good option with the Tagesschule (http://www.schule-baden.ch/Kindergar...ar/Tagesschule) specially if you are planning your wife to go back to work. In any public primary school kids go back home for lunch or the parents have to pay for a "mittag-tisch" which is not organized in every town, usually middle size towns would have this offer.
The Tagesschule has it already included, but... you have to be a resident of baden and apply to get a place in there, they only receive 20 new kids per year. If you are lucky you may get a place.

Do not worry about the language, the kids pick up the german in a couple of weeks, and usually teachers are quite reasonable to help the kids with the integration

My son is about to start the tagesschule in August, so PM me in case you would like to have further info

good luck
