Founded in 1947, La Garenne International School is a leading boarding school located on a sunny plateau in the Swiss Alps. Owned and managed by the Méan family for two generations, our school is set in the charming alpine French- speaking ski resort of Villars-sur-Ollon which provides a secure environment for our students. Our philosophy is based on traditional values, a strong sense of responsibility, kindness and security - key elements for a successful and balanced life. Each academic year we welcome 90 boarding and 30 day students, aged from 5 to 16, from over 35 countries.

La Garenne prides itself on an English-French bilingual approach. During the academic year our students follow objectives from the British Curriculum from Year 1 to IB MYP4, and also develop a high level of mastery of the French language.

Responding to continuous requests from our students and their parents, we are proud to announce the launch of "La Garenne Senior School". We have welcome our first IB MYP4 class to the existing campus in September 2019, to be followed by IB MYP5 from 2020 and IB DP1 from 2021. As our facilities develop, we plan to launch a new class each year, ultimately opening IB DP2 in 2022 - just in time to celebrate the 75th anniversary of La Garenne. The academic programmes offered will be the MYP (Middle Year Programme) with internal examinations and the IB Diploma Programme for our IB DP1 & IB DP2.

In addition to our full-time school year curriculum, students may also choose to join La Garenne as part of our "Integration Programme". This offers them a unique taste of academic and boarding life over a shorter period, after which some may choose to join us at a later stage for the full academic year.

In summer, we offer residential and day camps with a well-balanced programme consisting of language courses in French or English in the morning (from beginner to advanced level) followed by sports, cultural and leisure activities in the afternoon. In winter, students may participate in the “Integration Programme” and enjoy snow activities including skiing/snowboarding several times a week.

Whether during the school year or during our camps, we provide many wonderful opportunities (languages, challenges, expeditions, charity projects and school trips around the world) that stimulate the children’s natural curiosity and teach them valuable life skills.

La Garenne is also a CIS Member School (Council of International Schools) - in progress to be fully accredited - and a Cambridge/ DELF-DALF Preparation Centre.

“I believe Yasumasa had a pleasant time, due to support by all teachers and staffs. He told me lots of stories of the programme, and mostly enjoyed chocolate factory, walking in the mountain, and laser gun game. He also could learn how to play chess. I really thank to you, and wish you a pleasant summer.”

Greetings from Moscow! I would like to say thanks to all staff of La Garenne. My children spent unforgettable vacation at La Garenne school this summer. Effective English lessons, a wide variety of activities, interesting excursions and trips. The best Swiss camp ever.

I was a student in LG and I moved to other school but one thing that I couldn’t find in other school was “love” People in LG was really peaceful than others and also Stuffs were really kind.I think instead of anything we need personality to communicate with people from other country. And this school was really good to remember what I needed.
