|Teaching approach of the school||
he Swiss School Beijing is the first “Swiss School Abroad” in China and offers a unique window onto the Swiss Education system. This system was built on the pedagogical principles introduced by J.H. Pestalozzi in the 18th century, and has contributed significantly towards Switzerland’s present-day ranking as the most innovative country worldwide. Education has always played a central role in the social, cultural and economic growth of Switzerland.
Classes in a Swiss School Abroad are taught in at least one of Switzerland’s national languages. At the Swiss School Beijing, this will initially be German. In addition, education in the Swiss School Beijing is based on a Swiss curriculum, adapted to benefit from the School’s culturally rich Chinese and international context. The quality assurance for the School is carried out by educational experts from the Canton of Zurich.
