ZIS Partners

Zurich International School is more than a school, it is a special community. A community that is tied together by shared experiences. Working in partnership with our stakeholders is key to the successful ZIS experience. 

ZIS Partners collaborates to:

  • raise levels of understanding of ZIS philosophical drivers;
  • partner with various stakeholders;
  • learn about the ZIS experience from the parental and corporate perspective;
  • hear more voices - every voice is important and will be heard;
  • focus on issues that are relevant to the present and the future;
  • deepen relationships and maximize opportunities for connections.

ZIS Partners encompasses numerous opportunities to share thoughts and ideas, including Director’s Roundtables, Campus Meetings, surveys, corporate breakfasts with business partners and ZISMeets events.

The initiative started in 2016 when 300 parents were asked about their ZIS experience, as part of a Parental Perspectives audit. 

Community Conversations

Contribute your voice, intellect and passion.

In 2019 we launched a series of Community Conversations that bring together members of the ZIS community to focus on issues that are relevant to our present and future. The purpose of these discussions is to partner with others and to use the power of our networks to collaboratively exchange ideas and shape a collective vision.

The Community Conversations are facilitated discussions between eight to 12 specially-invited members of the ZIS community around a specific topic. If you would like to join a Community Conversation or would like to host one, please contact zis_partners@zis.ch.
