Each of our primary school classes has two teachers: one is a native speaker of German, the other a native speaker of English. The development of language skills in German and English is of paramount importance at this level, which is why we have developed our own bilingual reading and writing curricula. Furthermore, subjects such as mathematics or humanities are taught in both languages, ensuring that our students acquire a broad vocabulary. Additionally, French is taught as a foreign language from grade 5.
Our fully qualified teachers are conscious of the importance of catering to varied learning styles. Each class is equipped with an interactive board with students currently refining their knowledge of working with tablets to enrich their learning.
Annually we incorporate our month-long reading challenge, book week, project week, assemblies, camps, sports carnival and charity run as well as student council initiatives to enrich school life. With the support of our parent association’s initiatives, the school community stretches well beyond student-teacher relationships.
From grade 3 onwards, our students sit national and international benchmarking tests, in which they regularly achieve very good results.
Transition to SIS Secondary
Students of our Primary School who have a corresponding grade point average may change without examination to our bilingual Secondary School.
Day School Structure
Lessons take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and school days are divided into regular intervals with time for learning, play and relaxation. We also offer after school homework supervision from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. children can choose from our varied selection of clubs or use this time to read, play, cultivate friendships, or relax.
