The Bilingual Primary School for children from 1st to 6th grade
BLIS provides an excellent bi-lingual Primary School. We are licensed to educate children from their First year in Primary School, up through their Ninth Grade year. (End of Secondary School) We have small class sizes and pride ourselves on providing a very personalized educational experience. We are well resourced and have library books and computers, laptops, tablets and interactive white boards on site for the use of our students. Our Primary School is licensed by Baselland and we supplement the Baselland curriculum (Lehrplan 21) with that of the UK. By doing this, the children are educated with the high academic standards of Switzerland, but also have the advantage of learning from a more international curriculum.
Our Primary School is a great option for local residents looking for small class sizes with lots of individual student/teacher interaction, as well as ex-pats living and working in the area on a shorter term basis.
Lunch Table at the BLIS Restaurant
BLIS provides a daily hot lunch program, both for our students and student from local kindergartens and schools. All lunches are healthy and delicious and prepared fresh at BLIS by our qualified cook Cristina Pieragostino. We also cater to any special dietary needs, religious or moral dietary requests and of course any allergies that may be of concern.Read more
