The Senior School (MYP3 - 5 and DP1 - 2)
The Reinach campus was opened in 2002 to accommodate the growing ISB community. The purpose-built, state-of-the-art campus was home to the whole School until the Aesch campus opened for younger students in 2007.
Today, Reinach campus accommodates the Senior School (MYP3-5 and DP1-2 students). Located on Fleischbachstrasse, next to the Reinacherhof tram stop on the number 11 tram, its convenient location makes it easily accessible by tram, car and via walking/biking paths.
Reinach is a growing, thriving campus, catering specifically for the needs of Senior School students. It contains five Computer Labs, eight Science Labs for Biology, Chemistry and Physics, two large, fully-equipped Art Rooms, specialised Design facilities and an outdoor research area for Biology.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) capability is offered to MYP4 - DP2 students. Through VDI, DP students have wireless access from their personal computers – both at home and at School - to the School network. DP students are therefore able to access many required School applications and shared and personal drives.
At the School shop, students and parents can purchase a range of supplies, including ISB gym kits, stationery items and books, as well as supplies for ISB’s curriculum-based Music programme.
The Senior School Library plays a pivotal role in student learning, offering a wide variety of resources from books and audio books to DVDs, as well as a range of resources in many languages. The library provides a quiet place for students to study, reflect and do homework. Internet access provides opportunities for research.
There is a dedicated Food Technology and Product Design Lab. Two spacious and well-equipped Music Rooms, a dance studio and a Music Recording Studio enable students to experiment with different music genres. Our standard classrooms are well furnished, with large windows that provide natural light, contributing to a productive and comfortable learning environment.
Students and staff eat at the Culinarium, which seats 250. The Aula/Auditorium seats 560 for assemblies, and retractable seating serves to increase seating capacity, when required. Recent audio upgrades have seen significant enhancements to the students’ many concerts and performances.
The Gymnasium hall, divided into three separate spaces for everyday use, can be opened up to create one very large Gymnasium, ideal for international school tournaments. One of the gyms also features a climbing wall for student enthusiasts. DP1-2 students and ISB staff can exercise in the Fitness Room.
An artificial surface soccer pitch allows Senior School students to enjoy outdoor practice and recreation, even during inclement weather. Students also have access to basketball courts and table-tennis tables.
A school nurse is present on site to take care of students’ health and medical needs.
