Shaping Tomorrow: Cultivating Skills for Future Success Today

Underline Double Path

How can we best prepare children for their future? Under what conditions can learning succeed? What skills and competencies will help our students progress in the long term, and how can we support them in developing their potential?

Learning is not a competition or a race, but an elementary part of personal development.

Generation Alpha is being raised in a world intricately connected through digital means, one that presents novel and intricate challenges. In response to the swift evolution of society, the persistent modernization of educational content and teaching strategies is essential. Hence, we place a high emphasis on forward-thinking education. Our curriculum is designed not just to provide thorough, specialised knowledge but also to foster the acquisition of skills and abilities that will be pivotal in the future landscape of employment and societal interaction.

Revolutionizing Education for Tomorrow’s World

To fully equip the younger generation for what lies ahead, the concept of schooling must evolve within our dynamic society. At OBS, we are pioneering a transformative approach to learning. Our educational model is tailored to the unique requirements of each student and the realities of the contemporary world.

We recognise that children and adolescents are active participants in their education, not mere vessels to be filled with information. Rather than traditional lecturing, we facilitate their discovery and understanding. Our pedagogy encourages the development of problem-solving capabilities and nurtures critical and creative thinking. Errors are viewed not as failures but as valuable moments for growth, and we empower our students to take charge of their day-to-day academic life and their own learning achievements.

We think school is student-centred

We focus on our students’ individual learning pace, interests and preferences. We take their feedback seriously and ask for their opinion on organising lessons and teaching content. We do not rely on unnecessary pressure but on transparent and constructive cooperation.

Empowering Learners: A Student-Focused Educational Approach

At our school, the individual learner’s journey is paramount. We adjust to each student’s learning speed, interests, and choices. Their feedback is a cornerstone of our teaching strategy, as we actively seek their views on lesson planning and curriculum design.

Our philosophy favours open and positive collaboration over the application of unnecessary pressure.


Enhancing Educational Experiences with Cutting-Edge Technologies

New technologies offer new opportunities. Tools such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) are not only a part of our current reality but are also set to evolve and extend their influence. It’s becoming increasingly essential to enable our students not just to utilise these technologies but also to critically evaluate and comprehend them, thereby ensuring their significance in the educational context.

Fostering Innovation through Science and Research in Education

Beyond imparting the foundational skills outlined in the Swiss Curriculum (LP21), we also provide our students with substantial knowledge from sectors that will shape the future. By keeping abreast of the latest in educational research and breakthroughs in neuroscience, we are able to assess and integrate these insights into our pedagogy. The true value of knowledge lies in its application — connecting facts to real-world challenges and employing them in a manner that enhances our educational processes.


The school, as a place of learning for life, encourages learners to take responsibility and pursue their learning path self-determinedly.


Learning is a joint process in which learners and learning facilitators work together, creating space for personal relationships, participation and mistakes.


The influence of digitalization is profoundly reshaping the capabilities and skillsets of learners. Therefore, it is essential that our educational methods evolve to mirror this digital advancement.


It is necessary to revise the traditional set of school subjects to stay current. The ability to critically assess information from various fields and to devise innovative solutions has become indispensable in today’s world


A school serves as a vital space for nurturing social and emotional growth as well as supporting students in developing resilience and balance.


Students are very good at judging what learning is beneficial to them. Involving them in learning planning increases motivation for everyone involved.
