Welcome to the International School – Zurich North (ISZN)!

Welcome to Primary

For students aged 3-11yrs, we offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), which is an established worldwide programme at the Primary School level. ISZN has been authorized since 2006 to offer this programme, which is organized by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).

The programme is designed to be transdisciplinary in nature; integrating subject areas at all times to give the students a well rounded, engaging and relevant experience. Inquiry based and reflective of shared best teaching practices from around the globe, the programme actively works to instil a lifelong love of learning to all participants.

Our aim is to build and maintain a warm and caring, yet intellectually stimulating and challenging environment for our students. We believe that parent and community participation is vital to the students overall experience and we therefore regularly invite and involve the many members that make up our ISZN family to visit and work with us throughout the school year.

Please have a look through the Gallery to see some highlights of us in action and come see us to learn more about what we do and to experience the inspiring motivation and enthusiasm that we have for our learning every day!
