Swiss Baccalaureate

In Grades 6 and 7 students are to attend preparatory classes. These two years in our so-called hybrid classes (German-English bilingual, IB combined with Swiss Baccalaureate Curriculum) lay the foundation for a successful Swiss Baccalaureate education.

Upon completion of this two-year phase, a student can be admitted to the Swiss Baccalaureate section or can switch to our MYP/DP programme. The final decision to join the Swiss Baccalaureate section is taken in Grade 8. The curriculum then covers eleven basic subjects, one specialist option and one supplementary option (Grade 10-12). At SISD we prepare students for the bilingual Swiss Baccalaureate. Beside English Language and Literature three subjects are examined in English: Geography, History and the chosen supplementary option.
