SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz

More room for bilingual education, more room for the future.

Welcome to SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz! From August 2017, the state-of-the-art SIS Campus situated at the intersection of the main traffic arteries between Chur, Zürich, Rapperswil and Einsiedeln will leave nothing to be desired in terms of bilingual learning and life experience. Learning two languages does not follow a simple formula such as one plus one equals two. Real bilingualism in German and English is a gift that will continue to excite us for the rest of our lives.

Dear visitors

Thank you for taking an interest in SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz. From the 2017/18 academic year, our fully equipped modern school building will offer children and adolescents from kindergarten through to secondary school plenty of space to learn and interact in two languages.

Our SIS Curriculum is competency-oriented, fulfils the requirements of the Canton of Schwyz and incorporates relevant content from international curricula. From grade 3, students participate in standardised benchmarking tests on a regular basis. From these results we derive the goals and next steps that are necessary to ensure the continuous development and improvement of our teaching.

Our class sizes allow for differentiated teaching and feedback. It is important to us that our students understand why they are learning things and that they are aware of the respective learning goals. By encouraging explorative learning, we enable students to transfer their knowledge to the world outside the classroom. Furthermore, we place importance on our students’ willingness to perform, social skills as well as the appropriation of values such as honesty and respect.

We believe that the collaboration with parents is fundamental to a child’s learning achievement. You will receive regular feedback on your child’s performance and process of development. Furthermore, we hold the strong belief that learning is more successful if the relationship between students and teachers is based on mutual trust and appreciation.

We would be pleased to welcome you at SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz and give you the opportunity to learn more about our school’s stimulating learning environment.
