- Good to Know
We are convinced that the place where students learn has a decisive influence on how they learn. We therefore place great importance on an open school space that provides a welcoming atmosphere to students, staff, parents and guests alike, thus creating a pleasant overall environment. We cultivate multiple signature school events and regularly participate in activities that involve all SIS schools around the globe.
Our school is located next to the train station "Uetikon am See", with a large park nearby offering a variety of possibilities for physical activity and play. Equipped with modern teaching facilities, the school building provides bright and spacious classrooms and working areas, as well as a library and a popular cafeteria. In front of the building, children profit from plenty of room to play and let off steam.

SIS International Activities
We arrange numerous activities for our students to enable international exchange. In particular, the SIS Cup and the annual Intercountry Activity enable a shared experience and build friendships.
For the SIS Cup, everything revolves around the themes of sport, fairness and fun over two days. Every year, teams from all SIS schools compete against each other at one of our locations in individual and team disciplines and there is cheering, playing, sweating and laughing.
In addition to sports, we also connect our learners through the annual Intercountry Activity, which promotes international exchange. In past years, we have held international maths days, a parcel swap, a story-writing exchange, and a photo activity.
Furthermore, we honour the three best final papers submitted by SIS graduates with the SIS Best Essay Award. The written essays are produced as part of the final exams written for the Matura, Abitur or International Baccalaureate (IB).
We will continue to develop exciting formats. Be part of it!
