MORE THAN READING, MATH AND WRITING
We have smaller classes, which allows individual attention.
Some of the classes are multi-level.
Monday – Friday
School start: 8.10 a.m.
Closing time is different depending on the class.
No classes during the Ferien des Kanton BL
Other days off can be found in the annual schedule.
COURSE AND LESSONS
In small classes, children practice and learn what is important for life. This includes cultural techniques such as reading, arithmetic and writing, but also appreciative interaction with one another and a mindful attitude toward the environment. As a Christian school, it is important for us to talk to the children about the God of the Bible and to teach Christian values.
By the end of sixth grade, children are well prepared for the transition to secondary school.
Beginning in 4th grade, we offer 2 to 4 lessons weekly in the “learning studio”.
Here, the children work independently on their assignments under expert guidance or immerse into freely selected subject areas.
For the younger primary children, the learning studio is open as supervised help for homework.
TRIPS & PROJECT WEEKS
Every one to two months, the class plans an experience outside of the school building. This can be hiking, visiting exhibits, building a raft, exploring the forest, building a Lego city, inventing a robotics course, or other special outside projects.
Once or twice a year we organise a project week. During this week, the students are free to choose the workshops and gain new experiences and insights outside of their usual class group.
SKI AND CLASS CAMPS
The ski camp is a offer for our students from the 6th grade. But also for those who do not like it so “cool”, there is a varied offer in the context of a project week in the school building.
Class camp during the spring and summer months builds community and provides learning spaces outside of the school day.
“We are happy to know that our children are in good hands at UNICA School. The only thing I regret is that we didn’t send our children to this school sooner.”
TRANSFER TO SECUNDARY SCHOOL
Experience has shown that the transition to the secondary level is unproblematic. Some of the teachers also teach at the primary level and are therefore already familiar to the children. Through joint activities and sponsorships, most of the children form friendships beyond the level boundaries without fear of contact.
The grouping of the sixth graders into the three levels is done without pressure and stress towards the end of the second semester.
Transfer to a state school is possible without any problem.
Thank you for your interest in our school!
We would like to invite you together with your child to a “get to know each other” meeting with the school management without any obligation. By appointment, your child can attend our classes for 3 to 5 trial days.
