Parents testimonial the best school for my children

"Our two children, Betinho and Thaïs went through La Garenne. This is one of the choices that my wife and I will never regret in our lives.

Betinho was 8 when he came from Brasil to La Garenne, speaking only Portuguese. In 3 months he was able to communicate in French and, 3 months later, he was decent in English. He then went to College where he graduated with 6 "A" levels.

Our daughter Thaïs frequented La Garenne from the age of 3 to the age12.

This alone shows our total delight in having her studying there. Thaïs has learned a lot in La Garenne, not only on the academic side which is of very high level, prompting her to be the best in her new school now but also on the social, sociability, cultural, character building and sportive sides.

Tanguy our nephew is also a La Garenne graduate and brilliantly succeeded his Swiss secondary school later and studies now in the prestigious EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédéeral de Lausanne) and his sister, Célia, another La Garenne graduate, has now succeeded in following the path of studies she wished to go for.

La Garenne applies well the principle of education of "structure and unconditional affection" for our children. Its size, family ambiance enable the school to grant personal attention and affection to each child. Meanwhile, children also learn that there are rules to play by in society. We have seen the seamless transition between Mr. & Mrs. Méan parents to the new generation. Greg and his wife have made a super job in taking La Garenne to its next level.

With our gratitude,

Prof. & Mrs. Didier Vasoncelos-Miranda-Marlier"
