You believe in your child and want to give them the best start you can. We have created a nurturing and inspiring community at LCIS that will bring your child's talents to the fore, make them academically and socially confident, and give them all the benefits you would expect from one of the best schools in Switzerland.
We pride ourselves on being able to offer the values and quality you would expect from a leading Swiss international school, teaching your child the value of respect, character, social grace and leadership skills.
The finest academic standards
Our motivated and experienced team of teachers are dedicated to offering the highest standards of learning. Our senior management team ensures that we have a balanced and challenging curriculum that allows our students to excel. This is all underpinned by Nord Anglia Education’s commitment to High Performance Learning and research-led contemporary approaches to teaching.
Education, tailored to your child
We believe in educating the individual. Our teachers and senior staff ensure that your child is stimulated by lessons and activities, is able to explore their interests, and develop self-esteem and character. We work closely with parents and world-leading education experts to ensure our schooling is at its best.
A spectacular location
In August 2014, we moved from our former home in Vich to a new state-of-the-art campus in Aubonne. Our new school features excellent facilities including fully-equipped classrooms, gyms and a theatre. The Aubonne campus is located in a safe, attractive and easily accessible location between Lausanne and Geneva. Nestled between fruit orchards and vineyards, our new school will offer student wonderful views of Lake Geneva and the mountains beyond.
High Performance Learning
Nord Anglia Education has developed its own unique approach to learning called High Performance Learning (HPL). HPL is built on the understanding that every child can achieve academic success, and emerge from school as an academically and socially confident individual.
Guiding your child to adulthood
We provide care and quality education to students from age 2 to 18. Our Primary curriculum is based on the respected English National Curriculum, while Secondary students will study the Middle Years Programme from Year 7 to Year 9; the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education in Year 10 and 11, and progress to the IB Diploma. Since August 2016, students aged 10 to 14 have also been able to join our new bilingual Swiss Maturité programme.
Over the years we will prepare your child for success in adulthood, whether by attending a world-leading university or in readiness for the world of work.
A global outlook
La Côte International School is not just a quality international school in Switzerland. It is also part of a family of 66 Nord Anglia Education schools around the world, with two more on the way. Our Global Classroom initiative connects students at all of these schools, giving them the chance to meet new people, talk to global experts, collaborate and learn about new cultures.
A welcoming and community focused approach
We teach our students about their world, and put that into practice with sporting, cultural and social events, trips, fundraising and wider charity initiatives. Through Nordstar - our community investment programme – we offer time, expertise and grants to make a real difference.
We are a community here, made up of dedicated teachers, devoted parents and dynamic students. We would love for your family to join us.
