The sek eins höfe

The sek eins höfe is the puplic lower secondary school in the Bezirk Höfe. Our schools are located in Pfäffikon (Weid), Freienbach (Leutschen) and Wollerau (Riedmatt). Overall 600 pupils attend our schools. They are taught by 80 teachers. Our schools are well kept and are equipped with modern infrastructure and teaching equipment.

We are proud that our school has been rated an above average school by the external cantonal evaluation in 2012. Our innovative spirit was especially praised.

Currently we have extended our ICT-infrastructure. Our pupils now have full access to the school network from home. With the start of the school year in August 2014 we are running pilot classes with Tablet-Computers. In these classes every pupil will have her/his own personal Tablet.

In the Bezirk Höfe there are many international firms. Also the distance to Zurich and the airport, as well as the taxsceem and the lovely countryside attract expats. We believe it is demographically important that the citizens of our region take part in communal life. Therefore we run special programms in language and culture for pupils who join us from a different country. The pupils are integrated in a normal class but attend an intensiv German course for twelve weeks. After that the additional German tuition is reduced according to the pupils needs. In these special programms pupils also get to know Swiss culture and habits.
