SIS Frankfurt

International bilingual school culture in the city of diversity.

In Germany’s most culturally diverse and vibrant region, SIS Swiss International School Frankfurt offers your children consistent bilingual education right from the start. We do not only talk about interculturality, we live it: Our teachers teach in their mother tongue – and thus offer ideal conditions for cultural and linguistic immersion as the basic principle of language and culture acquisition. In a safe and supportive school atmosphere, we encourage and promote the intellectual and personal development of your children according to their strengths and interests.

Dear parents,

Frankfurt’s most famous son Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once said: “Those who do not know foreign languages know nothing of their own language.” We believe that Goethe is right and therefore want to offer your children a bilingual environment right from the start: learning in the language of Goethe and in the world language English.

Our primary school with reception class opened its doors in August 2020 in Oberursel, located just a few kilometers north of Frankfurt in the idyllic Taunus area, according to the established concept of SIS schools. Teaching at SIS Frankfurt follows the curricula of the federal state of Hesse, while the principles of our own school philosophy are also implemented.

In addition to bilingual education, we aim to equip children with a sense of tolerance and open-mindedness, with independent and critical thinking as well as with the ability to take responsible action. It is our goal for them to act and feel as a citizen in the local area as well as in the international, global community in which more and more challenges need to be tackled together.

In the 2020/21 school year, SIS Frankfurt started with the reception class as well as the first and second grades of primary school. With the aim of growing into the higher grades year after year, the primary school is to be expanded to include a secondary school, so that our students can complete their school career with the Abitur and, as an option, acquire the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

SIS Frankfurt accepts admissions both at the start of and during the school year. Please contact us to find out more – we look forward to hearing from you!
