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 classrooms and special-purpose rooms in the former Bally factory have been tastefully renovated and equipped with contemporary furnishings and advanced teaching technology. The large playground in the courtyard offers our students many different opportunities to play, climb, let off steam and relax.

Our School Traditions and Signature Events

We aim to foster a sense of community in a variety of ways: school assemblies, projects involving different class groups, sports days and the celebration of local and international holidays and traditions.


Annual school traditions at SIS Schönenwerd are:

  • Summer festival
  • Christmas concert
  • Halloween
  • Book Week

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!
