Our Team, Our Opening Hours and How to Reach Us

Greeting from the Principal

Dear Parents, Dear Students,

Welcome to SIS Friedrichshafen. It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to SIS Swiss International School Friedrichshafen, a jewel in the Lake Constance school landscape.

Our all-day school is located in the middle of the new educational campus in Friedrichshafen in the immediate vicinity of Zeppelin University and... On three floors, bright rooms with high-quality equipment offer the best conditions for learning and research.

In addition to bilingualism and cultural diversity, children, parents and teachers appreciate the personal, family atmosphere at SIS Friedrichshafen. With approximately 260 students, we are a manageable school community in which the individual support of each child is just as possible as the experience of a strong, lively, colorful community.

SIS Friedrichshafen stands for excellent academic education in two languages. Equally important to us is the development of the personality and the formation of the heart, which is concretized in our guiding principle REACH Respect, Enthusiasm, Altruism, Commitment and Honesty. Respect, Enthusiasm, Altruism, Commitment and Honesty are core values that shape our educational actions and interactions every school day.

Admission to SIS is possible not only at the beginning of the school year, but also during the year. Make an appointment with the principal at any time - we look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,
Manuela Heuthaler
