2016/17 Annual Fund

Give Every Year. Make a Difference Every Day.  
"Arts and Creativity" Focus

This year's Annual Fund projects focused on supporting the Arts on each campus and on developing creativity. Through donations from parents, faculty & staff, and alumni, all campus projects were funded this year! View the video below for more information about some of these projects.

As a non-profit organization, ZIS relies on fundraising for educational enhancements and to create our unique "ZIS Experience." The Annual Fund is the school’s primary fundraiser. It has an immediate impact on students and teachers by funding programs and improvements that go above and beyond what tuition provides.

For more information about the Annual Fund, please read our frequently asked questions or contact ZIS Head of Development Jennifer Wyss

About Us

With more than 1,450 students at four unique campuses, ZIS offers an extensive educational program with all the benefits of size but the intimacy of smaller settings.



We know that choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you can make for your child. Our Admissions Team is here to help and guide you through the process.


Learning at ZIS

At ZIS we recognize the unique and diverse nature of our students. That’s why accommodating the individual learning needs of each and every student remains our highest priority.


Student Life

Co-curricular activities challenge our students’ personal, social and physical development and encourage a greater passion for learning. Opportunities range from the arts to sports to outreach and service work and beyond.



ZIS has four unique campuses offering a personal experience to each of our students. Whether it is an old villa or one of our modern buildings, ZIS offers an age-appropriate environment for your child’s learning.



The ZIS community extends beyond our students and includes ZIS families, alumni, faculty and staff, corporate partners, neighbors and friends.



Once a member of our community, always a part of our family around the world! Our alumni include former students, former parents and former faculty and staff. At ZIS we welcome our alumni’s engagement and strive to help you stay connected with your ZIS.
