Zurich International School
Through our three age-appropriate campuses, ZIS is committed to excellence in education and the personal growth of every student. Our students learn in a multicultural community where each person is respected regardless of nationality, race, or religion. Students discover the world, its people, and its cultures through direct experience. Through play, study, and the relationships they form, students at ZIS learn to appreciate their own strengths and to respect differences rather than fear them. Combined with academic rigor, this experience extends outside the classroom and equips students for success and global citizenship beyond school.
ZIS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Organisation World School and is accredited by both the Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges in the U.S. ZIS is also officially approved by the Department of Education of the Canton of Zurich.
A strong academic program, centered around the traditional core disciplines, prepares students for entrance into colleges, universities, or other institutions providing tertiary education and training. ZIS offers Advanced Placement courses (AP) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB).
In addition, the school provides courses and learning support services which address the needs of a student body diverse in educational background and ability. More than 90% of the graduating seniors enter universities and institutions of higher learning worldwide.
Our state-of-the-art facilities and our locations allow for students to gain independence, and develop innovation and risk-taking.
Students attending ZIS enjoy living in the center of Europe and in or near the city of Zurich which is consistently named as one of the best places to live in the world, including being voted as the second best city for ‘quality of life’ in the Mercer’s Quality of Living Survey 2019.
