Institut Monte Rosa: ‘The Swiss feeling for education since 1874’
The International School Monte Rosa numbers among the first established Swiss Schools and its reputation and fame has been won through constant progress in the field of sound teaching methods to meet today’s requirements.
Located in a prime location on the shores of Lake Geneva, welcomes students from 8 to 19 years of age, both boys and girls.
‘Memorable moments in a secure environment’
Proven educational methods allow students of various nationalities to become acquainted with each other and with community life. Their education is based on good manners, respect for others and a sense of honor and discipline. In this atmosphere, which emphasizes co-operation and initiative, each individual is able to develop his own personality and learns to shoulder his share of responsibilities.
Our courses are held in English:
‘They deserve the very best!’
Our small classes, usually numbering between 2 and 10 students, promote motivation and encourage students to take pleasure and pride in their work. In addition to creating the ideal learning environment, we provide an academic program flexible enough to suit each student’s needs, in order for all to fully realise their potential.
Sports and physical education are combined, as they form an essential foundation for the development of body and character.
Even the holidays provide the joy of learning: A special and very popular feature offered by our school is its summer and winter Swiss holidays, “a democratic international lifestyle experience” where students can learn to live with students from other nations through sports, outdoor activities and language training (French, German or English).School visits are welcomed.
At Institut Monte Rosa, we know very well how students (both boys and girls) between 9 and 19 thrive when allowed to grow up in a family-like atmosphere of trust and confidence that encourages them to experience true values, to interact with other nationalities and cultures, and to make new friends. That is why we offer every advantage of a truly familiar yet unique environment, a peaceful and safe haven beneficial to your child's development, as well as facilities promoting achievement and success, adapted to the needs and expectations of each student.
Institut Monte Rosa supports all of its students (9 to 19 years of age) individually in developing their own personality, in honing their social skills and hence in learning to shoulder their share of responsibility in life. Our small classes, usually numbering between 2 and 10 students, promote motivation and encourage students to take pleasure and pride in their work. In addition to creating the ideal learning environment, we provide an academic program flexible enough to suit each student's needs, in order for all of them to fully realize their potential without feeling under pressure.
However, while striving to accommodate individual needs, our teaching staff always uphold our school's common values, as expressed by our mission statement, "In labore virtus": good manners, respect for others, a spirit of cooperation, the wish to do others good, a sense of honor, initiative and, not least of all, discipline.
At Institut Monte Rosa, a dedicated, experienced staff teaches small, flexible classes in which each student receives individual attention, thus overcoming or preventing any academic problem far more quickly than in larger, more traditional classes. Remarkable results have been obtained applying this method.
Our philosophy: better success through...
