With 380 students from over 56 different countries, the school provides a real international yet familial atmosphere for our pupils. The educational philosophy is focused on respecting and nurturing the individuality of students, while guiding them to a life of responsibility and independence.

This has remained the cornerstone of the teaching methods for more than 90 years and translates into small class sizes (max. 15 students), qualified professionals and personal mentoring that ensures our students reach their full potential, and become well-rounded individuals.


The school offers 4 programmes for students in grades 1-12:

  • Bilingual Elementary School (Grades 1 – 6) with bilingual (German and English) classroom for children from age 6
  • Bilingual Secondary School (Grades 7 – 8) which follows the newly formulated Swiss school system curriculum (Lehrplan 21)
  • Swiss High School – Gymnasium (Grades 7 – 12) for both Swiss and international students to gain Swiss Matura with possibility to earn an IB English Certificate
  • International School (Grades 6 – 12) with goal to obtain the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma
Institut Montana also offers the full Cambridge lower secondary programme.

Extra Curricular Activities:

Students can choose to participate in a wide range of activities to complement the core academic curriculum. These go from arts to cultural trips, as well as entrepreneurship programmes, and Model United Nations Simulation.

Their grounds also include a health centre, a gym, fitness rooms, and various sport facilities such as a natural grass football pitch, 4 tennis courts, beach volleyball and basketball courts, and an ice rink.


The boarding students live in single or double rooms in one of the three boarding houses based on their age and gender. For parental peace of mind, all the students are supervised around-the-clock by qualified and dedicated houseparents.
