At La Côte International School we aim to ensure each of our students can prosper in today’s ever changing and challenging world and strive to make their time at our school a rewarding and enriching experience. We have a strong and positive culture which places the child at the centre of learning. There is an acknowledgement and celebration of achievement, of mutual respect, tolerance, care and support.
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to our school. It does not take long to realize what an exceptional place it is; as soon as you walk through the door you are struck by the warmth and vitality of our students and staff. It is a small and growing school with a very big heart.
The culture of the school is strong; it recognizes the diversity of talent of each student and puts the child at the centre of learning. Academic, personal and social development are all given equal status, because La Côte International School aims to prepare students for the whole of life by giving them a balanced education through a strong academic curriculum and a range of co-curricular opportunities. We understand the complex needs of children growing up in an international environment. We ensure that the development of communication skills in English is a high priority for all, at the same time as providing a high quality French programme. This provides for both native French speakers and those students acquiring the French Language.
We are at a very exciting stage of our school’s development. In August 2014 we moved our entire school to a purpose built site with lake views amidst the orchards of Aubonne, between Geneva and Lausanne. This has enabled us to expand the school and satisfy the demand for places whilst opening up all sorts of opportunities for our students to learn beyond the classroom.
As part of the Nord Anglia Education family of schools, we are able to recruit the highest quality staff who are committed to our High Quality Learning pedagogical approach and who benefit from a commitment to their professional development. At the same time, through the Nord Anglia Education “Global Campus”, our students can collaborate, inquire, create, innovate and lead. Unique to Nord Anglia Education schools across the world, this contemporary approach allows our students to be connected to a global network of peers.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school and are here to answer any questions you may have.
