ZIS launched a bilingual pathway for children in Kindergarten 1 and 2 (children aged 4 to 6) from August 2021. The pathway, which meets the requirements of the Swiss Lehrplan 21 curriculum combined with our own robust international curriculum, has now grown to include classes from Early Childhood through to grade 2.
The pathway will include students aged up to 12 in the coming years.
The Bilingual Pathway is offered as an alternative pathway to our full international pathway. German speaking and bilingual homeroom teachers are part of our extended international grade level teaching team.

The position includes significant planning time, ongoing professional development and international networking opportunities.
