Why choose the ISSH boarding programme with an IB curriculum?

Choosing the best (boarding) school for your child can be one of the biggest challenges a parent has to face. Who would not want a first class education, in a stable and caring environment, in the picturesque Swiss countryside at a competitive price?

Some schools claim to be “better” than others but better is not always best. Finding the right fit for your child is on your mind – to choose a school for your child’s unique needs.

According to the IB website, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes aim to do more than other curricula:

  • encourage students of all ages to think critically and challenge assumptions
  • develop independently of governmental and national systems, incorporating quality practices from research and our global community of schools
  • encourage students of all ages to consider both local and global contexts
  • develop multilingual students.

To teach IB programmes, schools must be authorized. Every school authorized to offer IB programmes is known as an IB World School.
