Schools in Dachsen
There are two school communities in Dachsen, the primary school community and the secondary school in the district of Uhwiesen. The kindergarten is also attached to the primary school.

In the canton of Zurich, the kindergartens are run locally, mostly – as in Dachsen – by the primary school. All children who have reached their fourth year of age by April 30th of each year will be required to attend school at the beginning of the next school year. Dachsen currently has three mixed-age kindergarten classes.
After two years of kindergarten, it continues with six years of primary school in the school building on Dorfstrasse in Dachsen. The 5-day week has been introduced in Dachsen.
