Bilingual co-ed school near Lake Geneva - St George's International School

St. George’s International Schools is a welcoming boarding and day school in Clarens, near Montreux, offering the prestigious IB Diploma as well as a wide range of extracurricular activities for boys and girls aged 3 to 18.

Details

Founded in 1927 by two former Oxford University graduates, St. George’s International School was conceived as a secure haven where children of all nationalities could grow unafraid and reach their fullest potential as students and human beings.

Its idyllic setting near Montreux allows students to enjoy the many natural wonders for which Switzerland is known. The awe-inspiring Lake Geneva is a stone’s throw away and so is the unspoiled nature of the mountains near the Clarens campus.

The academic curriculum is focused on providing students with tools and opportunities to develop their characters and personal skills. For this reason, hard-core subjects such as science and maths are balanced with more creative classes such as art & craft and IT, as well as with cultural trips and social services that allow students to grow a conscience.

Throughout Junior School all subjects are planned in accordance to the British National Curriculum while subjects in Senior School can lead to the Pre-IB Diploma, the IGSCE, the IB Diploma or the High School Diploma.

With over 40 nationalities enrolled at St. George’s International School, languages are also a keystone and classes are offered in both French and English. Additional languages can be learned through extra-curricular activities and clubs.

The healthy rivalry between the 4 academic houses encourages students to grow a team spirit and inspires them to go the distance whether that be in the inter-house competitions or the sport activities that can be enjoyed on the school grounds.
