Prospective Parents

Welcome to Zurich International School – the oldest accredited international school in the Greater Zurich Area.

ZIS has been accredited by the Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges since 1971.

We offer all the advantages of being a large school – with a wide-ranging academic programs, and excellent facilities and infrastructure – while giving each student individualized instruction in one of our four small, age-appropriate campuses.

ZIS has an extensive co-curricular program with a variety of sports and activities for all ages, and students go on some amazing trips both in Switzerland and further afield. A school bus service, public transportation system and hot lunch program make everyday school life easy to manage.

While success is not only measured by academic results, ZIS students score consistently highly in International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement exams and go on to attend top universities and centers of tertiary learning around the world. 

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school!


Congratulations to the 134 students who graduated from ZIS at a special ceremony at the Upper School.
ZIS students achieved excellent results in math, reading and writing in an internationally-recognized assessment, gaining better results in all categories when compared to averages for other schools.
Service is an important part of the ZIS program. Students and teachers who took part in a service trip to a school in Ghana reflect on the experience and the impact it had on them.
