What are the Leading Swiss International Schools outside of Switzerland?
The Swiss education system is constantly ranked among the best in the world. Besides high academic standards, Swiss schools typically offer a strong focus on multilingual education and on cultural diversity. Usually you will find in Swiss international schools a very international mix of students from diverse cultures and backgrounds, giving the students the chance to make friends from all over the world.
Given the popularity of the Swiss educational system, you find Swiss international schools not only in Switzerland, but also in different parts of the world, such as in the Middle East, Africa, or Asia. Local and internationally mobile families in other countries appreciate a lot that their children have access to Swiss education abroad, from early childhood up to the Swiss Baccalaureate.

The Swiss International School is committed to providing an educational environment that excites, inspires, and challenges every student to excel academically and socially. Whilst most lessons will be delivered in English, as a Swiss International School, we wish to incorporate elements of the Swiss Culture and the French language as part of the overall curriculum.
