Partner of choice: SIS Swiss International School
Top bilingual education
Andrea Furgler is the CEO of SIS Swiss International Schools Schweiz AG, an education group with 8 private bilingual day schools. Andrea and his team of educators are here to help you choose the best bilingual school for your child.
A bilingual education pioneer
What distinguishes SIS Swiss International School from other schools in the high-quality and diverse Swiss education landscape is its highly effective and consistent educational concept. SIS schools are part of the SIS Group, which has been a pioneer in the bilingual education arena since 1999.
Teaching at SIS follows the full immersion method with half of the lessons being taught by a native speaker of English, the other half by a native speaker of German. Daily interactions also, be it in the schoolyard, at lunch, during events or excursions, are conducted 50% in English and 50% in the local language (German in Switzerland) - the two official school languages.
Bilingualism, however, is not a requirement for entry at any level.
International Baccalaureate (IB) and Swiss Matura
SIS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. The carefully developed SIS bilingual curriculum prepares students for both nationally and internationally recognised qualifications such as the Swiss bilingual Matura and/or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB).
Global presence and a strong local network
SIS Swiss International School is part of the SIS Group which operates 16 SIS schools worldwide (in Switzerland, Germany and Brazil), with more than 3,700 students overall.
There are 8 bilingual SIS day schools in Switzerland, located in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. From kindergarten through to secondary and college level, more than 1,600 students from both local and internationally mobile families are educated in English and German at one of these 8 SIS schools.
High quality standards
The SIS network ensures consistently high quality standards, as structures and processes at all schools are evaluated, developed and enhanced on an ongoing basis.
Get the best of both worlds: International education with local insight
SIS' educational concept allows children to experience the best of both worlds.
By means of bilingual classroom instruction in English and German, students receive an international education without being isolated from the local community. The school's curriculum is based on the local Swiss curriculum and is supplemented by elements of international curricula. SIS offers students a diverse school environment that simultaneously fosters an awareness of the wider world and a relationship to their immediate environment.
