Daten & Fakten
Welcome to the website of TASIS The American School in Switzerland. This site helps to tell the story of what makes this a special school, unrivaled in location, mission, and programs. The story began in 1956 when M. Crist Fleming fulfilled her dream of establishing an American boarding school in the heart of Europe, designed to prepare students for American colleges and universities and to introduce them to European culture and languages. Today we welcome 750 day and boarding students from Pre-Kindergarten to Postgraduate, with more than 260 students residing on campus. With a student body that represents approximately 60 nationalities each year and speaks more than 35 languages as a mother tongue, cultural differences are celebrated as students challenge and inspire one another to become global citizens. Our academic programs provide a rich and varied curriculum that encourages students to find their own voice no matter what the discipline. High School students can choose from a selection of Advanced Placement courses or pursue the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, providing access to colleges and universities around the world. Accredited by the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), we are proud to employ gifted, passionate educators who encourage intellectual curiosity.
