«The possibilities up here are almost unlimited.»

«Success is the side effect of passion and fun.»

«Our teams impress not only with their performance, but also with their fairness.»

«Self-confidence grows with every challenge.»


At a boarding school like the SAMD, the school itself sometimes fades into the background – and that's how it should be.

Team sports

When friends live and go to school together, successful sports teams flourish. Passionate commitment without losing the sense of fun is what distinguishes our sports people and their trainers.


Trips to choir festivals, performances, weekly rehearsals and self-confidently inserting one’s own voice into the overall sound of a choir, the SAMD’s values once again come alive in the choir.


“Only when you have slipped entirely into the role of another person, can you recognize yourself.” Participating in drama is a fundamental experience that creates mature personalities.

Debate Club

The SAMD has a long tradition of holding fact-based debates amongst equals in English. Highlights are the debates in the Erasmian European Youth Parliament.

Winter Sports

And by the way: Davos has five skiing areas, 74 km cross-country tracks, toboggan runs, ice rinks and five months of winter. Travel time from our school? Less than five minutes!

Summer Camp

The Children's University for curious primary school pupils offers researching, experimenting, coding and having fun, precisely everything that the SAMD stands for.                                               

Festivals and celebrations

Celebrating together binds us together – whether in basketball, a school party and at many other events where we come together and share our zest for life with each other.

And still so much more ...

A vibrant community shines through in all its diversity. The SAMD also has a chess club, language courses, sailing courses a string ensemble and much much more.
