I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the International School of Schaffhausen.
The ISSH has been set up to provide quality primary and secondary education to the international community in the Schaffhausen and Zurich North-East area. We currently offer classes from nursery (age 3) through to grade 10 (age 16). In August 2011 we have introduced grades 11 and 12. The language of instruction is English.
We are a full IB World school authorized to teach the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP) of the International Baccalaureate (IB). IB schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education.
Are you looking for a school with small classes and a family-like atmosphere? You'll be delighted with our location, a historic building situated on the outskirts of Schaffhausen. The former hostel has been adapted to the needs of a school with modern IT equipment in all classrooms, an exciting playground, a spacious library, a science lab, creative arts room, a sports hall and many more stimulating and exciting features to discover.
Our teachers have undergone thorough training and are very dedicated to keep your child enthused, interested and eager to learn.
Currently, there are over 200 students enrolled in the Primary and Middle School.
Please feel free to come for a visit to our school. Just call us, so that we can schedule a mutually agreable meeting time.
I look forward to meeting you and your family.
