In the secondary school, we offer the International Baccalaureate's Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme. La Côte International School has been an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School since August 2012. Our secondary school curriculum is designed to inspire students to become caring, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and confident young adults.
Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering highly respected programmes of international education that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world. Schools must be authorized, by the IB organization, to offer any of the programmes.
The IB has a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership and student achievement. The IB work with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
As of September 2016, we will be opening English-French bilingual classes and rolling out an exciting and innovative curriculum designed in partnership with our sister school Collège Champittet. This programme is paving the way for ambitious students to complete a Bilingual Federal Swiss Maturité in the forthcoming years.
