ENHANCING OUTCOMES: Building a Comprehensive Educational Experience

A school is more than a place for lessons; it’s a significant part of students’ everyday lives and plays a key role in their development. Recognising this, we create a secure environment that fosters not just academic learning but also social and personal growth. Our educational approach, therefore, balances rigorous academic content with the cultivation of critical life skills such as reflective thinking, critical reasoning, empathy, and curiosity, which will help students stand out in the long run. We strive to nurture independence and responsibility while providing unwavering support to our students throughout their educational journey.


Our upper school is centred around a comprehensive approach to learning. Students are immersed in active input and output sessions, collaborative projects, and interdisciplinary studies. They are regularly involved in both giving and receiving feedback and are encouraged to engage in ongoing self-reflection on their academic progress. Our dedicated teachers are there to guide, coach, and motivate, fostering an environment conducive to risk-taking and innovation.

We are committed to ensuring our students achieve their highest potential in the Matura and IB examinations through thorough preparation. This preparation includes a series of practice exams, psychological support, and intensive review sessions, reflecting our teachers’ commitment to student success.


At OBS, our upper school pathways lead to either the Swiss Federal Matura or the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Students face the important decision of which path to pursue after 9th grade. Both qualifications offer a broad spectrum of opportunities, with the best choice varying according to each student’s personal interests, strengths, and future aspirations. Our role is to offer guidance and support as they make this significant educational choice.

Learning is most successful when students understand the relevance. Learning is fundamentally social, and the tasks must be challenging yet achievable.
