SIS Kassel

One school, two languages, many cultures!

At SIS Kassel, native-speaking teachers implement the bilingual concept, bringing it to life amidst a close-knit school community. Both local and international families value the school's international flair and bilingual education.

Dear Parents
I am delighted that you are interested in the SIS Swiss International School Kassel. Our bilingual Primary School which includes a Reception Programme, opened its doors in September 2014 in Kassel-Marbachshöhe; our bilingual Secondary School started with the school year 2017/18 which enables us to accompany our students from the reception class to the German Abitur and/or the International Baccalaureate (IB).

Our goal is to support and challenge our students every day. Our focus is on teaching academic contents based on the Hessian state curriculum supplemented with international curriculum components as well curriculum elements specifically developed by SIS. At the same time we support our students’ development by guiding them to take on social responsibility. Respect, openness, tolerance, local insight and international mindedness play an important role in our school community.

Our two school languages German and English play an equal role in the course of the school day. Students are taught by native speakers according to the immersion method which invites students to submerge themselves into the foreign language which is the language of instruction as well as the language of school communication. We consistently adopt the philosophy of “one person, one language” which means that every teacher communicates in his or her mother tongue with the students in order to expose them to authentic learning situations.

Admission to SIS Kassel is possible at the beginning of the school year as well as at any other time throughout the year. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Sincerely yours,
Sebastian Koch, Principal
