New Middle School
Building for the Future of Learning
Zurich International School is excited to announce that a new, state-of-the-art Middle School will open for the 2022/23 school year, adjacent to its purpose-built Upper School in Adliswil.
The new Middle School, for Grades 6 to 8 (children aged 11 to 14 years), will include a connecting wing to the Upper School, for Grades 9 to 12 (children aged 14 to 18 years), allowing both buildings together to accommodate around 850 students. Facilities in the new building will include flexible learning spaces, a media centre, a triple gym, a makerspace area, dedicated STEM classrooms, music rooms and a theater. The newly combined campus will support a curricular and co-curricular program with the breadth and depth required to continue to meet individual student learning needs.
The development of the Middle School reaffirms the school’s commitment to a two-campus model, following the successful completion of the Early Childhood program’s move to the Lower School in Wädenswil last August, with some 450 students in Pre-School to Grade 5 (children aged three to 11 years) now under one roof.
The Ground-breaking ceremony took place on May 11, 2020
