Welcome to the Upper School

The Upper School at Zurich International School is a global community where over 500 students from over 55 nations, speaking 45 different languages, can feel at home.

The academic curriculum in Grades 9 and 10 is developed by our teachers and aligned with international benchmarks. In Grades 11 and 12 students can choose to enrol in

Regardless of the curriculum that each student pursues, our goal is to meet each student where they are, to ensure that they are challenged, and to be supported in an effort to achieve more than they thought possible. Student learning is enriched by a wide range of choices of academic offerings, extracurricular activities, classrooms without walls trips, summer internships, and the tertiary selection process. I encourage you to take the time to review our website - including our student voice section - to learn more about our learning community

As in our Upper School Profile, the Upper School is a great place to learn. We hope to welcome you to our campus soon.
