SIS Friedrichshafen

The bilingual school on Lake Constance.

Local insight, international education.

Dear parents, dear students,

welcome to SIS Friedrichshafen. I am delighted to introduce you to SIS Swiss International School Friedrichshafen.

Our school is located in the middle of the new Friedrichshafen Education Campus, close to nature and with plenty of space for learning, playing and making new experiences.

Our students from 32 nationalities learn together in German and English, from preschool to secondary school, following the immersion method. Our team is also international: they are either from the Lake Constance area or from different English-speaking countries.

Our school is state-approved. Lessons in primary school and secondary school follow the curriculum of Baden-Württemberg. Students at SIS Friedrichshafen graduate with the German Abitur and optionally also the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. This allows our students to study at both German or international universities.

It is our declared goal not only to offer bilingual education to our students, but to also educate them to become citizens who are able to think independently and critically, act responsibly and approach others with a tolerant and open mind-set. Our school community is committed to our guiding principle REACH – Respect, Enthusiasm, Altruism, Commitment and Honesty. It is important to us to offer students the chance to reach their potential and develop their interests in a positive atmosphere conducive to learning. We therefore emphasise project- and team-oriented learning, which furthers leadership skills, social responsibility, teamwork and creativity and provides the opportunity to apply these skills. Good behaviour is rewarded at SIS Friedrichshafen: Students who distinguish themselves as part of their class or individually receive the REACH certificate.

My team and I stand fully behind this philosophy, which sets our school apart in the Lake Constance area. I warmly invite you to get in touch with us and make an appointment. I look forward to getting to know you and your child personally, show you the school and answer all of your questions.
