Fostering a Global Vision

Our school is preparing our students for the challenges that globalisation brings. We instil values in our students such as communication, collaboration and building cultural awareness at an early age to help our students see themselves in a global context.

Infographics: Swiss French-speakers and the English language

88% of French-speaking Swiss are in favour of bilingual French-English education

The French-speaking Swiss see their future in English: 88% of them think that getting a good grasp of English requires learning it from childhood through bilingual French-English education. Other results of a survey carried out by the M.I.S. Trend economic and social research institute for La Côte International School: 9 French-speaking Swiss out of 10 think that young people's professional pathways will include experience abroad; an overwhelming majority (84%) think that pupils finish their compulsory schooling with a poor level of English; and nearly two-thirds think that "a capacity to innovate" is the essential ingredient for success in working life.

Bilingual English-French classes. Enrolment is open!

Mastering French does not simply mean being able to communicate effectively in that language, but also opens up another way of looking at life. The bilingual class in our school will give your child the chance to meet pupils from all over the world and so provide a horizon-widening experience, with active use of French on a daily basis. Three new classes (7P, 8P, 9S) will be opening at the beginning of the 2016 school year. Enrolment is now open.
