International School – Zurich North is open to parents who wish to provide their children with a truly international English medium education.
The School operates a non-discriminatory admission policy. Admissions are accepted and welcomed throughout the year. International School – Zurich North admits students whose academic, personal, social, and emotional needs can be met by the school’s programmes and services, and who can be fully integrated into a mainstream classroom.
To begin the application process, families contact the office and make an appointment for an interview and to visit the premises. Such a visit is informative and often helps answer questions about family relocation.
An admission form should be completed and submitted next. Previous school records, if available, should be submitted with the application form.
Finally, the first six weeks of school are probationary and during this period the suitability of courses and grade can be assessed by teachers, student and parents, and adjustments made. Until the lapsing of this trial period, placement is provisional.
Trial days are offered by the school and are the best option for students if parents are unsure as to whether their children will integrate into our classes.
Parents may consider enrolling their child in Nursery, if the son or daughter is 3 years old and toilet trained. Children who turn 4 before September 30th are welcome to begin Pre-Kindergarten and 5 year olds may join Kindergarten.
Students start Grade 1 when they are 6 years old (cut date: September 30th).
