At Buchrain Community School, there are more than 100 teachers and approximately 730 students from ages 4 to 16 years.
Since August2016, all departments in our kindergartens are managed in a two-year, mixed-agemodel, with the first kindergarten year being a voluntary offer. Each child is supported according to their potential. The focus is on the holistic promotion of existing strengths and the support of any weaknesses in order to best prepare them for primary school. Playful and active learning is also very important. Free play, mutual learning and cooperation are of the utmost importance.
All primary levels consist of 4 small sized classes. From the academic year 2021/22, 2 departments of the 1st to 4th grade will be accommodated at the Dorf and Hinterleisibachl ocations. The 5th and 6th grades can be found in the campus Dorf. Community-building events such as class projects or school projects are an integral part of everyday school life.
From the 3rd grade, English is taught as a second language and from the 5th grade, students are familiarised with the French language. In addition to the class teacher, the students are accompanied by a specially trained remedial teacher (4 to 5 lessons per week). Gifted and talented students are invited to our Talent Promotion Programme for two hours a week
