Since 1999, SIS Basel has been putting the bilingual school concept into action – with excellent results. Today, about six hundred students attend this flagship location of SIS Swiss International School. SIS Basel has an unparalleled reputation as the ideal school for children and young adults with big plans for the future in a globalised world. And this is a view shared both by Swiss parents and those who have moved to the neighbourhood from abroad.
The two school languages, German and English, act as a bridge connecting the forty-plus nationalities represented under our roof – and this multicultural setting delivers a host of benefits to students, teachers and parents alike.
We aim to foster a sense of community at the school in a variety of ways: weekly school assemblies, projects involving different class groups, and theme weeks on a variety of subjects. Reading marathons, sports days, winter and summer festivals – all are firm fixtures on our school calendar, together with the celebration of local and international holidays and traditions.
In the unique international, bilingual learning environment of SIS Basel, we strive to foster a desire for academic success and a healthy competitive spirit. Why not come by and see for yourself?
