The 6th grade at the École Française de Bâle
Our 6th grade has been open since the start of the school year 2020/2021. It is recognized by the French National Education and the AEFE: it offers the official curriculum and guarantees to the students the possibility to continue its studies in any public middle school in France and in the world wihtin the AEFE network.
Since 2021/2022, our 6th grade is also recognized by the Basel Stadt’s department of education, which means that since the start of the school year 2022/2023, our students can directly access the Swiss public secondary schools without an entrance exam.
Le 6th grade is the last year of the 3rd cycle, the cycle of consolidations, started in the 4th grade (CM1) at the Elementary school.
From now on, any topic is taught by specific teacher. Topics are learnt more in depth, with more rigour.
The topics taught in the 6th grade are :
- Physical Education
At the EFDB, thanks to its international section in German, German is taught not only in linguistic classes, but also in non linguistic classes, such as geography, sciences, history for a total of 7 hours per week.
English is also taught in a non linguistic class for a total of 4 hours per week.

In the Basel school system, the 6th grade belongs to the elementary school : our 6th grade students can directly start in the 1st year of a Basel middle school. The grades obtained by the students define the orientation in A, E or P level in the Swiss school system.
