The school’s philosophy and teaching methods focus on each individual, respecting and nurturing their character and skills, while offering counselling and guidance to ensure they lead a responsible and independent lifestyle.

With 300 students of over 40 nationalities, tolerance and multiculturalism are also core values for the school’s system and they enrich the low student-teacher ratio (15:1 per class) as well as the academic offer.


Students can choose from 4 programmes 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 provides the full Cambridge lower secondary programme.

Extra Curricular Activities: 

Outside the classrooms, students continue to expand their horizons through cultural trips, art workshops, entrepreneurship sessions, or the prestigious Model United Nations Simulation.

The school grounds also offer them the chance to take part in several sports as they feature a gym, several fitness areas, a football pitch, 4 tennis courts or a seasonal ice rink, to name but a few.


There are also 3 boarding houses where boarding students are accommodated in single or double rooms according to their age and gender.
