We believe that a transformative school experience should go beyond the classroom.

At ZIS, we help your child discover a lifelong love of learning. But we also help them to become a more active, creative, confident and broad-minded individual.

We do this through activities, events, and other opportunities which prepares them for success, and helps them discover who they are.

Our fees include:

  • A broad and inspiring co-curricular program
  • Trips and activities to help your child engage with what they learn
  • German language tuition
  • Equipment including iPads or PC notebooks
  • Student and Learning Support Services (excluding Occupational Therapy, and Speech and Language Therapy)
  • Support with English as an Additional Language (EAL)

We also provide a range of additional services at extra cost for families, including lunch, transport to and from school, and after-school care.

Fees for external examinations such as the AP and IB exams are not included in our annual fees.
