School Building and Opening Hours

A perfect environment for learning and development.

Spacious and exceptional school facilities comprising classrooms, a music room, a gym, an IT-lab and a cafeteria, all provide a diverse learning environment. In their lesson-free time, children enjoy themselves on a large and beautiful schoolyard. Why don’t you drop by for a visit and see for yourself?

School Building

The school building is located centrally between Aarau and Olten. It is easily accessible by public transport.

The premises of the former Bally factory have been tastefully renovated and equipped with modern infrastructure. In addition to the spacious classrooms, we also have a range of special-purpose rooms such as an art studio, a well-stocked library, a gymnastics room, a science laboratory and a computer lab, where even our preschool students can sharpen their skills.

For sports and swimming classes we use the sports hall and the indoor swimming pool of the public school located only a few minutes walk from the school. Our day-school structure means that our cafeteria is a key part of school life.

The large playground in the courtyard offers students the possibility to play football, basketball or table tennis, or just to engage in self-directed play. At secondary level, students have access to separate rooms for study and relaxation.

Opening Hours

At our day school, students are supervised between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. The exact lesson and supervision times vary between the different levels.

Our office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday.

The school adheres to the official school holiday calendar of the Canton of Solothurn.
