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.

The SIS Swiss International School Schönenwerd offers bilingual education in preschool and in primary school. On all levels, classes are held both in German and English. However, bilingualism is no prerequisite for admission. We offer additional courses in both languages for a defined period.

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 respective canton. This state curriculum is supplemented by elements of international educational practice as well as by pedagogical standards developed by SIS. Students can transfer to our school from public school system at any time.

Sports and Extra-Curricular Activities


The premises of a former Bally factory have been tastefully renovated and equipped with modern infrastructure. In addition to the spacious classrooms, we also have a range of special-purpose rooms such as a well-stocked library and a gymnastics room, where already our preschool students can sharpen their skills.

For sports and swimming classes we use the sports hall and the indoor swimming pool of the public school located only a few minutes walk from the school. Our day-school structure means that our cafeteria is a key part of school life.

The large playground in the courtyard offers students the possibility to play football, basketball or table tennis, or just to engage in self-directed play.

Extra-curricular activities

SIS Swiss International School Schönenwerd is a day school. Including our optional before and 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 have the option of signing up for a hot lunch in our cafeteria.

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

A school transport is offered from and to the train stations in Aarau and Olten, arriving at school at 8:30 a.m. and leaving school at 4 p.m. Furthermore, a special pick-up within about 20 km of Schönenwerd can be offered according to the possibilities of the 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 Schönenwerd 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.


Spacious and exceptional school facilities comprising classrooms, a music room, a gym, an IT-lab and a cafeteria, all provide a diverse learning environment. In their lesson-free time, children enjoy themselves on a large and beautiful schoolyard. Why don’t you drop by for a visit and see for yourself?
