Together We Laugh, Celebrate and Challenge Each Other

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.

Learning Spaces

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

For our students, we organise numerous activities that promote international exchange. In particular, the SIS Cup and the annual Intercountry Activity provide a shared experience and a glimpse beyond the boundaries of a school.

 

During the SIS Cup, which spans two days, the focus is on sports, fairness, and fun. Teams from all SIS schools compete against each other in individual and team disciplines, while everyone cheers, plays, sweats, and laughs.

 

In addition to sports, we also connect our learners through the annual Intercountry Activity. In previous years, we have organised international math days, a gift exchange, a storytelling exchange, a photo campaign, and an IT activity using Ozobots.

 

Furthermore, we recognise the three best written theses by SIS graduates with the SIS Best Essay Award. These written works are produced as part of the final examination for national university entrance qualifications or the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma.

 

We will continue to develop exciting formats. Join us and be a part of it!
