Bilingual Experience

English and the national language play equal roles in school communication – in the classroom and in all parts of day-to-day school life. As a result, children learn to express themselves naturally and confidently in both languages.

Independent and Value-Centred Approach

The teaching philosophy at SIS Swiss International School is not ideological but instead founded on clearly defined core values. We strive to embody the values we seek to impart to our students: honesty, appreciation, personal responsibility and commitment.

Day School Community

Our day school offers a structured and challenging programme of classroom instruction with fixed hours, lunch, supervised homework hours and additional flexible supervised periods and courses.

Performance through Diversity

Our varied, stimulating environment supports students in achieving excellent academic performance while allowing them to take enjoyment and pride in what they learn. Our international student body combined with teachers hailing from diverse backgrounds result in a diversified range of teaching and learning methods applied to the learning process.

International Education – Local Insight

Our intention is that SIS students graduate as global citizens with a strong sense of their origins. For students at college level, we offer targeted preparation for the national high school diploma. At the same time, they have the opportunity to complete the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), which results in a globally recognised university entrance qualification.

Continuity from Kindergarten to College

SIS Swiss International School offers a single unified learning concept – from kindergarten through primary and secondary school to college. Because we cater to all education levels, we can facilitate a seamless transition from one stage to the next.

Learning Enhanced by Technology

At SIS, technology is used in a targeted manner across all subjects, underpinned by a pedagogical concept for learning and teaching. From kindergarten onwards, students explore the areas of digital technology, programming and media as well as communication and e-safety. We use up-to-date, dedicated software to support the learning process of our students.

Strong Network

Our schools are part of the SIS Group, which has been a pioneer in the bilingual education area since 1999. At present, more than 5.000 students attend SIS schools at one of our 17 locations in Switzerland, Germany and Brazil. Our international organisation provides teachers and students with a platform to exchange experiences and insights across national borders.

We Encourage Growth – Not Only in Our Students

Our common and ultimate goal is to have a positive impact on the learning progress of our students. In order to live up to this aspiration, we are looking for qualified, motivated teachers. To enable our teaching staff to focus on their core competence, teaching, we are also looking for specialists from other professions.
