Welcome to La Garenne International School, situated in the French speaking part of Switzerland and created as a prestigious boarding school in 1947. Managed by the Méan family, it has been handed down from father to son. The school welcomes boarding and day students, aged between 4 - 14 years of age from all over the world. French and English are the two languages taught in the official curriculum and spoken within the school. However, the after school clubs offer Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, German, Italian, English, French and Russian.

The aim of the school is to enhance a student’s academic strengths, sports talent and artistic abilities within a warm family setting.

We are proud to offer a large variety of extra-curricular activities to develop the student’s independence, endurance and team spirit. These activities challenge and stimulate each and every student. We hope that the following pages will give you an insight into life at La Garenne. It would be a pleasure to accompany you, whilst visiting our modern facilities and meeting our international “family”.
