The International Dimension:

In daily life, in the school and on visits to other, neighbouring areas, both in France and in Switzerland and Italy, pupils come to appreciate the similarities and differences between the different cultures, along with the different ways in which they are expressed: arts, music, theatre, dance.

Living in harmony:

Life in the residence, where everyone is responsible for welfare and harmony, includes:

  • Dealing with social and emotional intelligence both as an individual and as a group.
  • Recognition of diversity.
  • Acceptance and mutual respect.

We help consolidate students’ international mentality by working on their French language skills in a space that allows them to participate in real-life use of the language, either at school or in the geographical contexts where the different activities take place
