La Garenne International School welcomes children between the ages of 5 (Year 1 / Kindergarten) and 16 (Year 11 / Grade 10) of more than 35 nationalities from around the world. As of September 2020 our seniors will get a new home in the newly renovated building of Senior School Le Roc located in Villars. The new location will allow us to create a cutting edge education facility to nurture talents of each student, meeting their individual needs.

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.
