About us - The Bilingual All-Day School for Children

ipso! is a success story stretching back for over 145 years as our very first school was founded in Basel back in 1876. Then as now, the entrepreneurial spirit and the individual commitment of the owners have supported this. Together with over 120 employees and almost 1,000 teaching staff and lecturers, we create the optimal conditions for over 5,000 students, trainees and pupils who wish to realise their potential and therefore put their trust in us.

Our group includes 9 strong and independently renowned training brands. Today our training programme is conducted at 11 German-speaking locations and increasingly online and currently consists of over 200 different products in the fields of Technology and IT, Business and Management, Exercise and Health, Commerce and Languages and Vocational and Adult Education as well as at the preschool and primary school stages. Our range of training which extends from kindergarten to university degrees, is therefore one of the most varied and comprehensive in the Swiss private education and training sector.

Passion for Learning and Success

ipso! International School is the first choice for families in the Frick valley and the surrounding area who want their children to be educated in a differentiated, international, bilingual and motivating environment.

Designed as an all-day school, ipso! International School’s English-German early education and school program is unique in its combination of international and local curriculum and family atmosphere. It is supported by a passionate team of teachers.

Together with all the other departments of schools and colleges and partner schools and colleges, ipso! stands for opportunities and prospects and intends to become the leading private provider in the Swiss training market through variety and innovation.
