SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz

Bilingual IB Diploma and Swiss Bilingual Matura Coming From Summer 2023.

Welcome to SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz! The state-of-the-art SIS campus is situated at the intersection of the main traffic arteries between Chur, Zürich, Rapperswil and Einsiedeln and leaves nothing to be desired in terms of bilingual learning and life experience.

Dear visitors,

The bilingual day school operations of SIS Swiss International School Pfäffikon-Schwyz take place in a modern campus which can accommodate around 320 children and adolescents. In addition to spacious classrooms, the campus also includes a media library, music, art and woodwork rooms, a science education laboratory, a cafeteria, a large sports hall and an outside football pitch.

Our vision:

We are committed to educating today's children for a better tomorrow by ensuring that they develop their intellect, their character and their social skills.

Our mission:

  • We provide an international and Swiss, bilingual education experience in English and German, within the setting of a personal day school community.
  • Our curriculum is based on the Swiss Curriculum 21 and is enhanced by relevant contents of the British Curriculum. Our educational programme, enhanced by digital technology, is academically rigorous and takes an independent and value-centred approach. We thereby emphasise both academic and character development.
  • We offer continuity for children from Kindergarten to Secondary school (including the Swiss bilingual Gymnasium from 2023 onwards and the bilingual International Baccalaureate (IB) from 2024).
  • We are part of a strong network of SIS Swiss International Schools in Switzerland, Germany and Brazil. SIS is a company of the Kalaidos Swiss Education Group which belongs to the Klett Group Germany.
  • We celebrate cultural diversity within our school while simultaneously embracing the local community. Our mix of Swiss and international families and staff provides a stable and welcoming environment for children from all backgrounds and experiences.
  • Our students will enter the world with the necessary skills to succeed: an inquisitive, open and knowledgeable mind, a fair yet competitive spirit as well as a caring, responsible and confident approach towards the environment, the world and its global community of citizens.

At SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz we consider cooperation with the parents to be central to the success of learning in every respect. Therefore, as principal, a close and appreciative cooperation between teachers, administrative staff and parents is very important to me.

I look forward to getting to know you in a private conversation and to personally show you the stimulating and focused learning environment of SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz.
