Institut Monte Rosa: ‘The Swiss feeling for education since 1874’

‘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.

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).

Why Should You Choose this School?

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.
