Education in Switzerland Find the best international education for your child

Moving to Switzerland can prove challenging for families, especially for children, given the absence of a familiar language in everyday life. By giving your children access to bilingual education and building a local network, you can turn this challenge into the chance of a lifetime.

SIS Swiss International School is a private, bilingual day school providing high quality bilingual education in German and English from kindergarten through to college. Bilingualism, however, is not a requirement for entry at any level.

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. As a day school, SIS moreover provides a structured and challenging programme including lunch, before and after school care as well as exciting extracurricular activities - also during school holidays.
