Our school offers since a complete education from nursery to secondary school as well as three school-leaving diplomas that provide access to leading universities. The four sections of the school – nursery, primary, lower secondary and upper secondary are designed to ensure a continuity of approach but they also enable us to welcome new pupils at all ages and all levels, including those joining us during the school year from public or private schools. In keeping with the Institute’s tradition, Florimont encourages the values of respect for others, courtesy, a positive attitude and a commitment to community and charitable activities.
Our strong focus on student achievement is founded on:
- close collaboration with parents
- personal attention and guidance by the members of the teaching team
- individual homework study plans
Our pupils are encouraged to be creative and to think outside the box, to take risks and develop an entrepreneurial spirit, qualities that will stand them in good stead at university and in their future careers.
Biingualism, sports, sciences, culture are strongly encouraged.
As well as encouraging academic excellence, Institut Florimont fosters the traditional values and beliefs that are important for life.
Since 1905, Institut Florimont has been preparing students for the French Baccalaureat and, as of 1942, for the Swiss Maturité. In September 2014, we added the bilingual (French-English) International Baccalaureate to our range of final examinations. Institut Florimont offers children even more opportunities and more choices, allowing them easier access to the world’s best universities.
The four sections of our school work together to ensure the continuity and coherence of the programme of study. Clear procedures are in place to ensure that new students joining us from other private or public schools are successfully integrated.
Close communication with parents, additional lessons and one-to-one tutoring are just some of the ways that Institut Florimont supports students during their studies.
Our student body is made up of more than fifty nationalities making Institut Florimont a rich multi-cultural and multi-lingual learning environment. The importance we attach to this is reflected in our language learning programme. In addition to English, emphasis is placed on German, Switzerland’s predominant language, as well as on Chinese, Spanish and Italian. Other languages such as Russian and Arabic are individually tutored or taught to small groups.
Bilingual classes in French and English are offered from the first year of the middle school.
Priority is given to partnerships and exchanges with leading schools worldwide, as well as to many activities that can add value to a university application.
Our students are encouraged to be entrepreneurial, bold, adaptable and creative because we know that these qualities will not only strengthen their university applications but also prepare them to face the challenges of working life.
