Director’s Welcome

A very warm welcome to the International School of Central Switzerland (ISOCS)

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the International School of Central Switzerland (ISOCS) in Cham, Zug. Our international school is comprised of dedicated and experienced International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP) and IB Diploma (DP) educators from the top international schools worldwide and students from diverse backgrounds and nationalities.

Our International School was founded by dedicated and leading International Baccalaureate (IB) educators

Our founding faculty of school advisors and evaluators came together in 2008 with a shared vision to truly implement best practices of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and establish an international school in Switzerland of outstanding educational excellence.

ISOCS Mission

The International School of Central Switzerland is an IB World School. The philosophy and mission of the International Baccalaureate shapes our school identity and culture. We are wholeheartedly committed to our educational journey following the International Baccalaureate’s four academic programmes.

We look forward to your visit

Our school is located in the beautiful, Swiss German, lakeside town of Cham on the outskirts of Zug within 20 minutes of Zurich and Lucerne. These web-pages offer you a small glimpse of what you can expect to see when you come to visit us at ISOCS. The first thing you will notice upon coming to our school is the vibrant atmosphere, the cheerful colour scheme and the way in which our students and their thinking is honoured and celebrated wherever you look. As you visit our classrooms you will certainly be very impressed by our teachers’ positive and professional rapport with the students as they work intensively with individual students and study groups. You won’t fail to notice how engaged and confident our students are!

Optimal class sizes – All on one campus

Having a maximum class size of 16 in primary classes, allows students and teachers to form close relationships. At ISOCS every student feels safe, known and nurtured. Our Middle School acknowledges the social dynamics of adolescence and therefore accepts class sizes up to 18 students.

Our students are educated for the 21st Century

Don’t be surprised if our students welcome you spontaneously and offer to tell you more about our curriculum, special projects or how they learn best. Our students are proud of their school and of themselves as learners. They are truly prepared for the 21st century and its rapidly changing demands. We are a member of the Swiss Group of International Schools (SGIS) which exists to support international schools in Switzerland in achieving their educational goals. I hope that I will have the pleasure of getting to know you and your children and that our warm and dynamic community is a place where you will always feel welcome.

Welcome to the International School of Central Switzerland!
