Our sustainability ambition: we model what we teach
A Long-Term Perspective Implies Acting Sustainably
Not only how we operate as a school but especially how and what we teach has an impact on future generations. We are aware that as an educational institution, we hold a double responsibility in society for the matter of sustainability. We are therefore committed to sustainability in two ways: firstly, as a company we are striving for climate neutrality. Secondly, we anchor sustainability in education and promote sustainable, cross-curricular and cross-level initiatives launched by sustainability teams in the individual SIS schools.
SIS Swiss International School guarantees high educational and quality standards:
- We regularly review the implementation of the curriculum. This is to ensure that the excellent teaching and learning standards that apply to all SIS schools are met and that our students receive the best possible learning experience.
- Structures and processes at SIS locations are continuously evaluated and developed.
- At SIS Basel and SIS Zürich, we offer an officially authorised bilingual Swiss Gymnasium with in-house examinations (Hausmaturität) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).
- All SIS schools periodically participate in the international benchmarking test ISA (International Schools’ Assessment) and the national benchmarking tests Lernlupe and Lernpass Plus.
