About the school

  • Long description:

    Just an hour away from Zurich and built on a 60-acre campus in the gorgeous Zugerberg Mountain, the Swiss and International Boarding and Day School Institut Montana offers the best of Switzerland to its 300 pupils on a daily basis.

    The school’s philosophy and teaching methods focus on each individual, respecting and nurturing their character and skills, while offering counselling and guidance to ensure they lead a responsible and independent lifestyle.

    With over 40 nationalities, tolerance and multiculturalism are also core values for the school’s system and they enrich the low student-teacher ratio (15:1 per class) as well as the academic offer.

    Students follow the Bilingual Elementary School programme from grades 1 to 6, and the Bilingual Middle School programme from grades 7 to 8 before having to choose between the Swiss High School-Gymnasium programme or the International School programme; both of which cover grades 7-12.

    Outside the classrooms, students continue to expand their horizons through cultural trips, art workshops, entrepreneurship sessions, or the prestigious Model United Nations Simulation.

    The school grounds also offer them the chance to take part in several sports as they feature a gym, several fitness areas, a football pitch, 4 tennis courts or a seasonal ice rink, to name but a few.

    There are also 3 boarding houses where boarding students are accommodated in single or double rooms according to their age and gender. All the student halls are managed by devoted staff that makes sure students are supervised around-the-clock and enjoy a comfortable stay and a high degree of wellbeing.
