|Teaching approach of the school||
In order to offer a curriculum which meets the needs of its pupils, KIBS has developed its own tailored program which incorporates learning skills and objectives from international curriculums as well as the learning objectives of Canton Zürich. All subjects are taught through a cross- curricular medium, which creates a meaningful base on which to build a strong learning platform. The curriculum promotes critical thinking and independent problem solving skills. KIBS encourages its pupils to develop a degree of independence and to take responsibility for themselves.
