FINANCING

Most people believe:

  • The Swiss Teacher is hired  and paid by the German School

  • The German School is very expensive

  • The "Swiss Lessons" are only for Swiss

 

But in fact:

  • The Swiss Teacher is hired by the Section Education and financed by  

 

1. The Swiss business community

 

2. The Swiss Federal Office of Culture

 

  • The financial support of the Swiss government is provided based on the commitment of the Swiss Community to provide a Swiss teacher to the German School

  • Because of this commitment all Swiss enjoy the same conditions (i.e. School Fee, Reductions etc.) as German or Japanese citizen

  • The German School is together with the French School the cheapest foreign school in Japan

  • The "Swiss Lessons" are open to every student at the German School
