La Découverte School is a school which offers a bilingual education through active pedagogy.
The children are taught English through immersion for half of their school program and the teaching methods specifically encourage the child to experiment, be creative and cooperate with others.
Having a campus in the city of Geneva and one in the canton of Vaud, La Découverte offers two different, complementary choices.
The school was founded in the early 90’s, out of the ideas formed by a group of parents who were focused on the quality of their child’s education. A group of educators, educationalists, psychologists and administrators came together to form the structure of the school. Over twenty-five years, the number of children in La Découverte private school has grown from 13 to 230 pupils, highlighting the growing demand for a different way of teaching.
I attended this school myself from the age of 4 to 8 as well as my sibling and younger children from close families.
La Découverte is an awesome school with many opportunities and I am greatly thankful to it even to this day.
The fact that it is located near a park is really child-friendly, its bilingual system is just great & I have especially good memories about my teachers there. The atmosphere is very international and the small number of students creates personal and open relationships all around, even despite age gaps.
I, for one, can surely recommend this school with a confident smile :)
