Bilingual Experience

English and German play equal roles in school communication – in the classroom and in all parts of day-to-day school life. As a result, children learn to express themselves naturally and confidently in both languages.

Independent and Value-Centred Approach

The teaching philosophy at SIS Swiss International School is not ideological but instead founded on clearly defined core values. We strive to embody the values we seek to impart to our students: honesty, appreciation, personal responsibility and commitment.

Day School Community

Our day school offers a structured and challenging programme of classroom instruction with fixed hours, lunch, supervised homework hours and additional flexible supervised periods and courses, also during school holidays.

Performance through Diversity

Our varied, stimulating environment supports students in achieving excellent academic performance while allowing them to take enjoyment and pride in what they learn. Our international student body combined with teachers hailing from diverse backgrounds result in a diversified range of teaching and learning methods applied to the learning process.

International Education – Local Insight

Our intention is that SIS students graduate as global citizens with a strong sense of their origins. For students at college level, we offer targeted preparation for the national high school diploma (Matura). At the same time, they have the opportunity to complete the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), which culminates in a globally recognised university entrance qualification.

Continuity from Kindergarten to College

SIS Swiss International School offers a single unified learning concept – from kindergarten through primary and secondary school to college level. Because we cater to all education levels (sometimes even under the same roof), we can facilitate a seamless transition from one stage to the next.

Learning Enhanced by Technology

At SIS, technology is used in a targeted manner across all subjects, underpinned by a pedagogical concept for learning and teaching. From kindergarten onwards, students explore the areas of digital technology, programming and media as well as communication and e-safety. We use up-to-date, dedicated software to support the learning process of our students.

Strong Network

Our schools are part of the SIS Group, which has been a pioneer in the bilingual education arena since 1999. At present, more than 3.800 students attend SIS schools at one of our 16 locations in Switzerland, Germany and Brazil.
