SIS Swiss International School Basel

Curriculum: Teaching at SIS is based on the curriculum of the respective canton. This curriculum is supplemented by elements of international educational practice as well as by pedagogical standards developed by SIS.

SIS Swiss International School Basel provides a complete education from preschool through to secondary school and college. On all levels, subjects are taught in German and English; however, bilingualism is not a prerequisite for joining the school at any level.

Our bilingual Preschool is a day school that offers a well-supervised, safe and stimulating learning environment for children aged three to six. SIS has developed its own curriculum for children in this age group. Our Preschool is the ideal preparation for the transition into the bilingual SIS Primary School.

At our bilingual Primary School, teaching is based on the curriculum of the canton of Basel. This state curriculum is supplemented by elements of international educational practice as well as by pedagogical standards developed by SIS. By attending our Primary School, children are ideally prepared for the transition into our Bilingual College. Students can transfer to our school from public school system at any time.

Following primary school, SIS Basel offers two tracks towards graduation, either the Bilingual College culminating in the Swiss  Matura, and the International College, also bilingual, that culminates in the IB programme.

We offer a two-year bilingual Secondary School programme as an alternative to the college path. At our Secondary School, students are prepared for continuing their education at college.

Sports and Extra-Curricular Activities


Our large sports hall and gymnastics room hosts a variety of sports lessons and competitions, and it is also where we hold our weekly school assembly for all year groups.

Under the schoolyard’s chestnut trees, there is a playground where younger children can climb, play balancing games, or use the slide and swings. The older students can often be found playing table tennis, football or basketball. At college level, students have access to separate rooms for study and relaxation.

Extra-curricular activities

SIS Swiss International School Basel is a day school. Including drop in time and optional after school care, the school day runs from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. It is important to us that students of all age groups feel happy and comfortable at our school, which is why we offer a range of services to cater for our students’ various needs.

All students at SIS Basel have the option of eating lunch in our cafeteria.

Before and after school care is available to children in preschool and primary school.

Our private day school provides a range of extracurricular activities and clubs for students of all ages, allowing them to develop skills that complement their school work or offer a welcome change from the regular academic programme.

SIS Basel offers a holiday club during the breaks in autumn, winter, spring and summer. For one week, the children enjoy taking part in a varied programme – including trips – under the supervision of an experienced team.


SIS Basel is located in the district of Kleinbasel and easily accessible by public transport. The classrooms and special-purpose rooms in our landmark building have been tastefully renovated with contemporary furnishings and are equipped with advanced teaching technology. Under old chestnut trees, there is a cosy schoolyard for children to spend their time outside of school hours. Why don’t you drop by for a visit and see for yourself?
