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

SIS Rotkreuz-Zug is located in the Suurstoffi district. Our kindergarten school building is a protected historic building that underwent careful renovation prior to our school’s opening, whilst our state-of-the-art primary and secondary school building offers a calm, ordered environment for class instruction that includes a library, a music room and a science lab. Our kindergarten has its own private play area. The primary and secondary students are able to play in our dedicated school playground and also benefit from supervised play times in the Suurstoffi play zone.

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!
