About SIS Swiss International School Basel
Curriculum and International Standards
Teaching at SIS Basel is based on the curriculum of the respective canton, complemented by elements of international educational practice and pedagogical standards developed by SIS.
Complete Education from Kindergarten to College
SIS Swiss International School Basel offers a comprehensive education from kindergarten through secondary school and college. At all levels, instructors teach subjects in both German and English. However, bilingualism is not a prerequisite for joining the school at any stage.
Our bilingual Kindergarten, a day school for children aged three to six, provides a well-supervised, safe, and stimulating learning environment. SIS has developed a unique curriculum for this age group, preparing children for a seamless transition into the bilingual SIS Primary School.
Bilingual Primary School
Teaching at our bilingual Primary School is based on the curriculum of the canton of Basel, enhanced by international educational practices and SIS’s pedagogical standards. Attending our Primary School prepares children for the transition into our Bilingual College. Students can transfer from the public school system at any time.
Bilingual College and International College
Following primary school, SIS Basel offers two tracks towards graduation: the Bilingual College, culminating in the Swiss Matura, and the International College, also bilingual, leading to the IB programme.
Bilingual Secondary School Programme
As an alternative to the college path, we offer a two-year bilingual Secondary School programme. Our Secondary School prepares students for continuing their education at college.
Sports Facilities and School Assembly
Our large sports hall and gymnastics room host various sports lessons and competitions. Additionally, we hold our weekly school assembly for all year groups in these facilities.
Playground and Activities
Under the chestnut trees in the schoolyard, younger children can enjoy climbing, playing balancing games, or using the slide and swings. Meanwhile, older students often engage in table tennis, football, or basketball. College-level students have access to separate rooms for study and relaxation.
Location and Facilities
SIS Basel, situated in the district of Kleinbasel, is easily accessible by public transport. Our landmark building features tastefully renovated classrooms and special-purpose rooms with contemporary furnishings and advanced teaching technology. The cozy schoolyard under old chestnut trees provides a pleasant space for children to spend time outside of school hours. We invite you to visit and see for yourself.
