SIS Zürich-Wollishofen

A charming school location between city and lake, joining tradition and modernity in a multitude of ways.

It is not only the school’s easy access to public transport but also its exclusive location that makes SIS Zürich-Wollishofen unique. Separated from Lake Zürich by an extensive public park, the two school buildings are combined in a charming garden complex. The bilingual kindergarten is housed in the historical building, whereas the bilingual primary school, library and cafeteria can be found in the modern school building. It is a truly ideal setting for learning, growing up, stories and history.

Dear visitors,


Welcome to SIS Zürich-Wollishofen.


Overlooking the Landiwiese and Lake Zurich, we are currently teaching around 220 students in 14 grade-based classes from kindergarten to grade 6.


Our school is influenced by the various Swiss families, as well as international ones, who have made their home or place of work in the Lake Zürich area. Everyday school life is enriched by this diversity on all levels; however, we also place great value on establishing ties with the local community.


Teaching is based on our competency-based bilingual curricula, which also makes it possible for students to transfer from and into the public school system at any time. While it is our aim to provide a performance-oriented education, we also place great importance on equipping our students with strong social skills and values.


We offer our students a stimulating learning environment that is characterised by cooperativeness and kindness; thus, providing them with all of the necessary conditions to develop into motivated and socially competent individuals.


Please come by for a first hand impression of school life at SIS Zürich-Wollishofen.
