Lipschule

“Learning is about the development of the individual” – this is the overriding principle of LIPSCHULE Zurich. Findings from neurobiological research show that children and young people have very individual ways of acquiring skills. As an educational institution we therefore feel we have a responsibility to create an environment in which they can develop to their full potential. We do so by providing an excellent basis for the permanent accumulation of knowledge. This approach, based on a humanistic view of mankind combined with constructivist educational methodology, is one we adhere to at all teaching levels.

Lakeside School - Horgen

Bilingual, caring, challenging, hands-on.
Lessons are based on the Canton Zurich curriculum and are combined with inputs from international curricula resulting in a unique Lakeside School curriculum. Our bilingual programme is not limited to listening and speaking but also includes challenging requirements in reading and writing. The competences in the first language are thereby enriched rather than compromised. As a state-approved school, Lakeside School, under the supervision of the Canton of Zurich, meets the requirements and objectives of the local Zurich curriculum for all grades. The English curriculum does not refer to the curriculum of a particular country or that of international schools. The combination of elements from different Anglo-Saxon curricula ("International Standards") shapes our English teaching programme and in combination with the local curriculum has led to our unique bilingual curriculum. The principle of immersion teaching means that both German and English are not solely “language courses” but instead are the languages of instruction in all subjects taught (with equal attention given to both language per subject), such as mathematics, geography, etc. Our exclusively German or English native speaking teachers result in not only additional language skills and knowledge for our children but also provides different cultural experiences.
