The bilingual way at FGZ.

The bilingual way: Freies Gymnasium ZOrich (FGZ) has established itself as the leading school for bilingual education in the greater-Zurich area.

For those families who move from abroad to the greater-Zurich area, an important factor to consider is locating a suitable school for their children. If the family plans to stay in the area for several years and their goal is to integrate culturally, as well as linguistically, the optimal solution is a bilingual education such as the one offered by Freies Gymnasium Zurich.

The bilingual way at FGZ offers a programme that is taught equally in German and English, each at the mother-tongue level. As a result, pupils are successfully immersed in the cultures of both languages.

In order to meet the requirements of a globalised world, our successful bilingual way is not limited to just a few school years, but begins at pre-kindergarten level and is concluded with the Swiss Bilingual Matura examination (which is on par with the International Baccalaureate IB), and qualifies students to study at Swiss and international universities. Teaching is based on the Zurich curriculum. Primary school classes are the responsibility of our partner, the Lakeside School, in Kusnacht. The Progymnasium, the lower and upper schools of the Gymnasium, are the responsibility of FGZ.


We would be delighted to welcome you to our information session on September 10.
