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.
The boarding programme at the International School of Schaffhausen offers a home away from home. We provide a caring and stable environment combined with an academic programme for the students which pushes their boundaries, motivates them to grow past their comfort zones and lets them experience a completely different way of learning.
In a world with many challenges and opportunities we encourage our students to be independent and self-sufficient.
The aim of the ISSH boarding programme is to equip young adults with the knowledge and skills to develop into well-rounded personalities as well as guide them to succeed in their professional life so they can tackle the world and have a smooth transition to university life.
The International Baccalaureate High School Diploma, a challenging academic programme offered at the International school of Schaffhausen, is a modern alternative to local systems and is rapidly gaining popularity all over the world.
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.
