The SIS Swiss International Schools are a group of 16 private day schools in Switzerland, Germany and Brazil offering continuous education from kindergarten through to college. As of 2018, more than 3,600 students are enrolled with the SIS.[1]

SIS has been operating schools in Switzerland since 1999, in Germany since 2008, and in Brazil since 2011. It is a joint venture of Kalaidos Education Group (Switzerland) and Klett Group (Germany).

History[edit]

In 1999, the Minerva School in Basel opened up a bilingual branch, which subsequently became the SIS Swiss International School. The pioneering class of SIS Basel consisted of four students. Shortly thereafter, the first bilingual institutes in Zürich and Winterthur were founded, and in 2008, SIS Stuttgart-Fellbach opened as SIS’ first school in Germany. In the time since then, additional branches have been added, and as of 2018 more than 3,600 students are enrolled in the 16 schools that are operating in Switzerland and Germany. Furthermore, SIS Brazil opened its first campus in Brazil in 2011.
