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; therefore, we offer a consistently bilingual environment and education for your children, starting with their first day at SIS Frankfurt: learning in the language of Goethe and in the globally spoken English language.

Our primary school with reception class will open its gates at the beginning of the new school year 2020/21 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 and principled 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, which faces an increasing number of challenges that we can only address and tackle together.

In the 2020/21 school year, SIS Frankfurt will start with the reception class as well as the first and second grade of primary school – and then grow year after year into the higher grades. Students will eventually be able to complete their school careers with the German / Hessian Abitur and optionally with the International Baccalaureate Diploma in addition.

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!
