As a multi-cultural day school located in the north-eastern suburbs of Zurich, Switzerland, ISZN provides an outstanding education to the children of the international community. We offer a purposeful and inquiry-based programme that features small class sizes, qualified and experienced teachers, a culture of high expectation and the caring qualities of a small school.
In 2019, we joined the global Cognita family of schools, working together to create an inspiring world of education.
The Primary Years and Lower Secondary curricula are designed to reflect the best research and practice from a range of national systems, combined with a wealth of knowledge and expertise from international schools, to create a relevant and engaging educational experience.
In Grades 9 and 10 we offer the highly respected IGCSE, a 2 year course that culminates in subject examinations at the end of Grade 10 and which is excellent preparation for the rigours of senior school education. At Grades 11 and 12, we provide the International Advanced Subsidiary (IAS) and International Advanced Level (IAL), which are offered by Edexcel and Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and are universally accepted as university entrance exams.
