I am delighted that you are considering enrolling your child at SIS Swiss International School Stuttgart-Fellbach.
The school opened in September 2008, and student numbers have grown steadily since then. Teaching is in English and German – both languages have equal status in the classroom and in all other areas of school life. We follow the curriculum set forth by the Baden-Württemberg Department of Education, supplemented by elements of international curricula and curricula specific to SIS.
SIS Stuttgart-Fellbach‘s Primary School and Secondary School have full state recognition, allowing the school to hold its own examinations. Moreover, the school leaving certificates (Mittlere Reife and Abitur) are equivalent to those obtainable at German state schools. In addition, the SIS Secondary School has been recognised as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, giving it the right to offer the IB Diploma Programme, alongside the Baden-Württemberg Abitur (German qualification for university entrance). This international dimension, in conjunction with the local insight, makes our school unique in the region. In accordance with the “one person – one language” principle, teachers interact with students exclusively in their mother tongue. As a result, intensive language learning does not just take place in the classroom, but is an integral part of all school activities.
Fellbach lies to the north-west of Stuttgart and can easily be reached by car or public transport. The nearest S-Bahn (local light railway network) station is only a few hundred metres from the school. The school building has spacious classrooms plus a number of specialist rooms such as a science laboratory, a computer suite and an art studio, as well as a large school yard and a new, modern sports hall adjacent.
We offer before school care from 7:30 a.m., classes begin at 8:30 a.m. for all students. Morning lessons are followed by lunch in our bright and friendly cafeteria. When afternoon lessons are over, students can attend supervised homework sessions from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., and after school care is available until 6 p.m.
I would like to invite you to come into the school for a personal discussion. The school office will be happy to arrange a convenient date and time. You may also be interested to know that we offer taster days to give your child a better idea of what to expect.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Thomas Hackmann, Principal
