Swiss School Beijing Now Open

Swiss School Beijing Now Open
China's first Swiss School officially opened as a section of Western Academy of Beijing, a world-leading international school.

Swiss School Beijing is China's first, and the world's 18th, school to be supported by the Swiss government. Several distinguished guests attended the grand opening ceremony on October 30, including the Swiss Ambassador to China H.E. Dr. Jean Jacques de Dardel and Swiss Council of States President H.E. Dr. Ivo Bischofberger.

Guests enjoyed a ribbon-cutting ceremony, traditional Chinese lion dance, and tours of the campus.

"The Swiss education is a holistic one which tries to go beyond a simple academic education and focuses on developing knowledge and creativity," Ambassador Jacque de Dardel said.

The Swiss School Beijing offers a German-language education, based on the Swiss curriculum, within an international environment. In its inaugural year, the school is offering Kindergarten, Primary 1 and Primary 2 classes, with one additional class rolled out every subsequent year. In addition to learning German, students of the Swiss School Beijing are taught Chinese, English (from Primary 3 onward) and French (from Primary 5 onward).

Western Academy of Beijing (WAB) has a long tradition of providing Mother Tongue Language Programs. Thanks to the partnership between WAB and the Association Swiss School Beijing, students of WAB now can choose to follow a German-language Swiss curriculum, while benefiting from the multicultural environment, friendly atmosphere and excellent facilities of WAB.
