School Building and Opening Hours

A top-league schoolhouse.

SIS Zürich is perfectly accessible by road and public transport and equipped with an exceptional infrastructure. The spacious school building houses two dozen classrooms, various special-purpose rooms for arts, music and woodwork, as well as a gym and a library. In their lesson-free time, students enjoy being in the cafeteria or on the roof-top terrace. Why don’t you drop by for a visit and see for yourself? 

School Building

SIS Zürich is located in the Zwicky area of Wallisellen, the site of a former thread factory. Located southeast of the Glattzentrum, the school is directly accessible by tram line 12, with its stop Wallisellen-Neugut right in front of the school building. Our school is accessible by public transportation in twenty minutes from Zürich main station and in just under thirty minutes from the train station in Winterthur.

The surrounding area is being developed into a new and lively urban neighbourhood. Apartment and office buildings are being built next door to the school. The most aesthetic of the industrial heritage buildings as well as the surrounding natural environment of brooks and forests will be preserved; attractive recreational areas and open spaces are thus created, which will also be at the school’s disposal.

SIS Zürich is home to a complete school infrastructure. More specifically, this includes:

  • spacious classrooms
  • a variety of special subject rooms (music, arts, crafts and woodwork facilities; media library; science lab)
  • a cafeteria
  • a gym with equipment facilities and locker rooms
  • outdoor facilities: multipurpose sports ground, cafeteria lounging area, playground for the younger students
  • a landscaped roof terrace and a recreational area for older students
 
 

Opening Hours

At our day school, students are supervised from 7:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. The exact teaching and supervision hours vary between the different levels.

Our office hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.
