Education

There are a variety of Swiss and international schools (local and private) in the Canton of Lucerne.   Private schools offer either an English or a bilingual (German/English) education.  Notwithstanding, the Swiss school system has an excellent reputation, and most Swiss children attend their local public school.   Your child may attend the public school in the "Gemeinde" of your residence for free.  This system offers kindergarden, elementary and high school.

From kindergarten to university, Lucerne benefits from wide-ranging education opportunities. Moreover, technical colleges, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts and a range of training and continuing education institutions offer training in almost any discipline imaginable. Lucerne's education and training establishments are noted for the excellence of their teaching at home and abroad.
