We strive, at all age levels, to inspire our students to be lifelong learners and prepare them for the complex challenges of the future; students explore, learn and understand together in a structured bilingual setting. We offer the Canton Schwyz (Swiss) curriculum incorporating IEYC, IPC and IMYC curricula, and the languages of instruction are English and German across all year levels, taught by native German and English speakers. We are an IB World School and offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP). The first IBDP classes will therefore begin in grade 11 as of August 2019. OBS is now an IB World School.
