Facilities & Location

Ready for a nurturing learning environment

Our Primary and Secondary school are based in two different campuses, only 5 walking minutes away from each other. Conveniently located close to Wallisellen train station, our premises are easily reachable from different directions.

Our big and bright classrooms and the modern technical equipment lay the foundation for a nurturing learning environment.

I have highly recommended ISZN to several friends and expats on arrival in Switzerland. An excellent school and I am very appreciative of the support they have provided.

Ready to explore all their talents

We believe that co-curricular activities form a crucial part of the learning of our students, as they help them to find a passion, which is something that every student should be aiming for.

Getting out of their comfort zones will enable them to gain soft skills which will be useful in all areas of their lives.


Ready to be part of a caring, inclusive community

Our staff body is as diverse as our student community and is a sign of the true internationality of our school. All our teachers are highly qualified and undergo regular professional development to be up-to-date in regard to trends and innovation in teaching to ensure the best possible education for your child.


We welcome students into our Nursery from the age of 3 and accompany them through all stages of their learning until their graduation after grade 12.
