About Chantal Bucher
Chantal Bucher has been the Principal of the Swiss International School Berlin since 2018 and has a nearly two-decades-long reputation in the education sector.

She has been responsible as a scientific employee in the Kunstraum Baden for museum education and administration and was the school administrator and teacher in the Kreisschule Surbtal.
Since finishing her initial study of art history, she has never stopped learning. Chantal in 2011 received the Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Project Management at the Hochschule für Wirtschaft Zürich and in 2014 finished an apprenticeship to Oberstufenlehrperson (High School Teacher) at FHNW.
Today, Chantal Bucher, in addition to being the Principal of the Swiss International School Berlin, also works as a manager in the FührerInnenteam at the Bruno Weber Skulpturpark.
