We're proud to announce that SISD has been formally inducted into the Swiss Group of International Schools (SGIS). SGIS was formally founded in 1969, and aims to support international schools in Switzerland and around the world, as well as align all members on topics that are of interest to all partners. This distinction and honour required a lot of hard work from our faculty and staff, so we'd like to highlight their contributions in making this happen.
