Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Tandem IMS is a private international school which has been accredited by the canton of Zurich’s educational authorities. Tandem implements the Zurich cantonal curriculum with the aim to prepare the children for the “Gymnasium” entrance examinations at the end of 6th grade leading to the best schools in Zurich. Furthermore, the Tandem International Multilingual Curriculum (Tandem IMC) is the core competitive advantage of the Tandem schools. Its structure and philosophies are equally closely related to international curricula, especially those currently in use in international schools. This ensures easy transfer back to the home countries’ schooling and international schools worldwide.

Teaching approach of the school

Tandem IMC combines elements of both the Swiss and the International programmes ('Zürcher Lehrplan', IBO: International Baccalaureate Organization’s Primary Programme, UK National Curriculum as well as the Ontario Curriculum from Canada).
