Are you thinking about joining the ZIS community? Come and meet us at one of our open houses or arrange a personal visit to our school.

Making a decision about where your child will go to school can be daunting. Things that look good on paper, might not feel the way you thought when you get there. We want to make sure you have all the information you need to choose the right school.

That’s why every year we host events and open houses to show you everything that ZIS has to offer. Our events will give you a clear picture of who we are, why we are proud of ZIS, and what our community feels like. We hold both in-person and online events for your convenience.

You can also arrange a visit of your own, or get any questions answered by contacting our Admissions Team. We are always happy to help.
