Monolingual education programme

The monolingual programme covers all the departments of FGZ – from the preparatory classes right through to the Swiss Matura examination. The development of the first language, German, is an important priority especially in the preparatory classes.


Bilingual education programme

FGZ is the pioneer of bilingual education in the Canton of Zurich. For the past 15 years it has enabled pupils to attend bilingual education from Kindergarten right through to university entrance level in collaboration with Lakeside School and other bilingual primary schools.
