Embracing Diversity
ESRM believes that diversity enriches and strengthens our community of learners. It contributes to outstanding achievements, fosters innovation and cultural awareness as well as the development of cultural, social and civic competences for life. Every student comes to school with unique talents. However, to thrive and be successful, any student may require individual support at some point

Student Support Department
Therefore, ESRM established a Student Support Department that offers:

  • Academic/Educational Support: to help students reach their academic potential, we offer catch-up lessons in core subjects when students are behind (e.g. due to a move), study skills classes, individual support and enrichment courses or gifted / exceptionally talented students;
  • Counselling: to help students navigate emotional and social stress and challenging behaviour, we offer individual counselling and the KiVa anti-bullying/mobbing programme;
  • Language Support: to help students acquire a working knowledge of English and German, we offer intensive language courses in small groups;
  • Guidance Counselling: to help students select the best fit for further studies, we offer advice on subject choices, internships and university applications.

ESRM’s Approach
Students, parents and staff can contact a member of the Student Support Department. The following principles guide our approach:

  • We follow a positive, whole-child approach, recognise the individuality of our students and seek to harness their interests and strengths to overcome challenges and foster growth.
  • When students have a diagnosed special educational need (e.g. dyslexia), we offer strategies and accommodations /special arrangements (must be justified by an external psycho-medical report). For the Baccalaureate (S6+S7), a request for special arrangements must be submitted by S5 students in October. 

The best results are achieved when families and the School work together. It is therefore important that parents inform the school if their children have received or need additional support so we can provide the best care possible and/or refer to external experts when needed. ESRM does not offer diagnostic assessments or therapy, but we work in close consultation with external experts.

Organisation of Student Support
Our dedicated staff offering student support at ESRM include Teachers, Pedagogical Advisors, Psychologists, Social Pedagogues and Guidance /Careers Counsellors. Class Teachers play a central role and are the first point of contact regarding your child’s overall learning and well-being. Due to the increasing demands of the curriculum and Baccalaureate exams and the characteristics and vulnerabilities of youth, ESRM established a dedicated Student Support Department in the Secondary School.
In addition, Baccalaureate (S6 +S7) students are offered careers /guidance counselling in English and German.
