Curriculum – Test | SISD

At Swiss International Scientific School, we embrace the IB. The philosophy and values of the programme are embedded throughout the school and the IB Learner Profile is inherent and integrated in all levels and classes across our school.  Our students enjoy an engaging learning experience – the challenge of developing a real understanding of cultural diversity and the support of a thriving international community all contribute to our students’ development as truly global citizens.

SISD is an IB Continuum World School authorised by the IB Organisation to offer and teach the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related programme (CP). We follow the framework of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme from Pre-KG to Grade 12 and the Swiss Baccalaureate programme from Grade 9 onwards.

We believe the IB is the gold standard of education – we believe there is no better educational programme for ensuring children are ready for the 21st century workplace and life beyond education. The IB is also well-respected, acknowledged and loved by the top global universities and world-class employers.
