We want to actively support families by offering useful and flexible services and trying to adapt to their busy schedules.

Whether the bilingual Swiss Matura or the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) – the qualifications our students achieve leave them free to follow whichever educational path they choose.

At our bilingual primary school, teaching is based on the cantonal curriculum. This is supplemented with elements of the British curriculum as well as with curricula developed by SIS.

Children are playing on the large playground. One group plays table tennis and another group plays football.

The large outdoor area with sports field, playground and rooftop terrace are extremely popular during lesson-free time.

Primary school children sit in class and listen.

Language acquisition that begins early, is carefully guided by experts and happens in a natural environment, leads to lifelong competence.

The classrooms and special-purpose rooms are equipped with contemporary infrastructure and advanced teaching technology.

Stories from SIS Zürich

 

"Very warm and professional welcome from the very first day across the entire SIS team. Great learning environment with plenty of opportunities for the kids to explore and develop. Our son loves going to SIS every single day and we do not want to miss the excitement anymore."

M. and S. Leitner, parents

"Uns ist das beste passiert, was Eltern passieren kann: Unsere Kinder sind gerne zur Schule gegangen! Der Grund ist sehr klar. Wir hatten jederzeit engagierte Lehrerinnen und Lehrer, die sich mit viel Herzblut für die Kinder eingesetzt haben. Das (Lern-) Umfeld stimmt."

Volker Probst, Vater

"What we love about our teachers is that they captivate children’s passion and curiosity. They are very child-centric, and proactively keep the parents in the loop as needed. As a working mom, I feel I am a full partner in our children’s learning and I extremely appreciate the time staff take to keep us in the loop of what is going, way before we ask for it. "

Idil Wittmann-Abubakar, mother

"We have been extremely happy with the school and the education our children have received. The school is well run and the education structured and delivered in a caring, intelligent way. Our children, though different, both really enjoy school and are happy. The day structure has allowed us both to work while ensuring our children were well supported in their learning in both languages in a holistic environment."

Family Halsegger

"The teachers are extremely attentive and caring to the children to help them navigate through the new environment and experiences. They learn through play and songs which makes school so much more fun for the kids. Our son has benefited from this and has developed tremendously socially and in learning in the first 1.5 years at the school. We are so happy that we have also registered our little daughter to join the school next year."
