Team capability and creativity and the ability to learn independently are indispensable factors of success in a fast changing world.
Successful and sustainable learning requires the ability to take responsibility for their own learning. For this reason, in SSiS Primary Section, we consciously use differentiated, cooperative and student based forms of learning. The children experience meaningful learning by being able to actively set goals, create their own ideas and work out solutions to achieve their aims and objectives. We are convinced that learning experiences are particularly joyful when the children are given the opportunity to pursue their interests and talents and are able to demonstrate what they enjoy.
In the Primary Section, we accompany and support children from Kindergarten to P6 through their individual learning path. Our teaching methodology values that children are cared for in an age appropriate way and according to their needs and abilities. This approach enables the children to take over responsibility for their actions and learning step by step. SSiS has become an individualizing school that introduced mixed-age learning in double classes from Primary 1 onwards.
After the P6, the children are well prepared and strengthened by positive learning experiences, in order to successfully continue their further education at any German-speaking school, French-speaking school in Switzerland or international school.
We have an affiliation with La Petite Ecole (LPE). For children who have been enrolled in LPE for more than a year at the date of registration to enter our school, the registration fee to enter our school will be waived.
