Viki Stiebert

One of the things we say to all new teachers joining us is that they will be an even better professional when they leave us. ZIS has been true to its word and I have spent my ten years here learning concepts, skills and information about leading schools globally.

Andrea Withers

Well known as a top school in the International School world, Zurich International School is an incredible place to learn and grow, for students as well as for teachers. The professional development offered by the administration is the best I've experienced, bar none. Grade level team members collaborate with each other and with the leadership team to create powerful units of inquiry for students.
