La Garenne International School welcomes children between the ages of 4 (Reception) and 14 (Year 9) of all nationalities from around the world.
We pride ourselves on our English-French bilingual approach, giving students expertise in two languages. Students follow the official English national curriculum, in parallel with developing a mastery of the French language.
Academic excellence, a warm international family ambience in which diversity is welcomed, and a safe location in exceptional surroundings, are our core values.
Our mission is to promote respect, tolerance, politeness, global citizenship and self-challenge.
"Cela fait bientôt 4 ans que notre fille Alissia a intégré La Garenne. Aujourd'hui La Garenne est sa deuxième famille, elle y a trouvé un énorme soutien sur tous les plans qui se traduit par une grande joie de vivre. Chaque vacances est un déchirement, chaque reprise un bonheur de retrouver l'ensemble du staff à qui nous ne dirons jamais assez merci pour tout le déploiement de bienveillance, de gentillesse et de professionnalisme. Mille merci pour tout et pour toujours."
"Warm hearts. Sharp minds. Best intentions. The skills to make it happen. We are proud and blessed to have found a home away from home. La Garenne offers a safe environment where our children can make mistakes and fail and where they are taught to get up, try harder and succeed. Priceless."
"Amazing! Greatest primary boarding school in the world. Good friends, beautiful nature, very kind,excellent teachers and staff"

Thank you for taking care of Pablo this term and for making his tough times easier . Once more it's great to let my son in your hands knowing he is really like at home with all the cares , love and values he lives in my family . THANK YOU!!!
Thank you so much for taking care of Henry for the last three weeks. Henry had a wonderful time in La Garenne. He learned how to ski, how to sing a French song and he made a lot of friends as a boarder. We were quite worried about him before sending him as a boarder in a different country. Now he told us that he wanted to go back and stay for another two weeks. We knew he must have had so much fun there. We were so pleased with his changes and we will definitely send him back in the near future.

"We feel sad to leave La Garenne which provided Riko with comfortable home; however, we have decided to send her to Le Rosey so that she can face new challenges. We hope that Riko will have even more good memories than ever during the short rest of the year at La Garenne so that La Garenne will become her home for the rest of her life. We appreciate your countless efforts you devoted for Riko, and we are very pleased how she grew up."
