International School Help (Zurich)

Hi all,

I currently live in New York City and I am looking to take a 2 year assignment in Zurich. My wife and I have 3 boys (ages 8, 5, and 2). I have some questions about applying to international schools, particularly ZIS Wadenswil. Any help is greatly appreciated. My basic questions are:

1) Can you apply to the school before securing a Swiss address? It looks like we need to apply quite soon for the fall semester, but we won't have a flat in Zurich until at least June.

2) Where do most people who attend ZIS Wadenswil live? I am not yet familiar with the neighborhoods. My office would be located in Sihlcity Centre.

3) Do most expats own a car, or can you easily get around on public transportation?

4) Are there other international schools we should be considering? Our boys only speak English, which is our main reason for looking at International schools.

Thank you in advance.
