New SIS School in Pfäffikon SZ Ready for Students International education

SIS Swiss International School opened its eighth school in Switzerland: SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz opened its doors at the beginning of the academic year 2016/17. Both in preschool and in primary school, the two school languages English and German are used in equal measure in the classroom as well as in everyday school life.

SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz offers children from internationally oriented families in the upper Lake Zürich area a high quality bilingual education from preschool through secondary school, enabling them to pursue any kind of academic or professional career. 

Start in August 2016

SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz opened in August 2016. During the 2016/17 academic year, classes are held in a modular building on Eichenstrasse 15. During the start-up phase, preschool for five-year-olds (primary intro) and the primary grades 1 to 4 will be offered full-time.

New campus

At the same time, the planned campus on Eichenstrasse 5, which is going to meet the specific requirements of SIS, is being built adjacent to the modular building. From August 2017, this campus will offer the ideal learning environment for preschool, primary and secondary school. In addition to spacious classrooms, the grounds will hold a media centre, specialised rooms for music, arts and craft, a science lab, a cafeteria, as well as a gym and outdoor facilities.

The campus provides enough extra space to accommodate for the anticipated growth of SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz at a later point in time. Provided there is enough demand, the school plans to offer classes on college level (secondary level II), culminating in the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB).

Established School Group 

Over the past fifteen years, the bilingual concept has been continuously perfected and expanded at the various SIS locations. The experience, resources and know-how acquired in the successful establishment of previous SIS schools have been applied to the design of the teaching environment, daily planning and learning structures at SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz. Thus, students are able to enjoy professional classroom instruction from day one. Teaching at SIS is performance-oriented, but at the same time aims at catering to the children's individual needs.
