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

The spacious classrooms and special-purpose rooms on the modern SIS campus are equipped with advanced teaching technology. The media library, specialist rooms for music and art, the science laboratory and the indoor sports hall also contribute to the ideal environment. A large break area is available for children to spend their time outside of school hours. Recreational areas are located in the immediate vicinity.

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!
