Schweizerische Alpine Mittelschule Davos

Welcome to the SAMD in Davos

The SAMD combines a high school, intermediate business school and a boarding school all under one roof. 240 pupils receive a comprehensive and in-depth education.

We are recognised and authorized by the Swiss government to have the Swiss school leaving examinations known as the Maturitätsprüfungen sat in our school and for our teaching staff to supervise the examinations. This places high demands on our teaching body. Therefore we select our professionals with great care.

Regardless of the choice of education, our students all benefit from the vast experience and expertise of our teachers but also from the outstanding infrastructure and the unique location in the highest town in the Alps. With its sports, culture and recreational opportunities, it really does offer the optimum balance for school life.

We look forward to your visit in Davos.
