Directed studies are focused upon providing students with a structure in which to study and complete their homework assignments, and where they can also receive appropriate support.
A teacher makes sure that the subject matter and the objectives are understood, and that the students are working appropriately.
Teachers who supervise the directed studies communicate with students’ other subject teachers to ensure the most efficient method of learning.
Robotics and programming
Our students will undoubtedly have an early start in the world of technology and therefore it is essential to introduce them to programming and robotics. To do so, we work with EPFL on various modules developed for a variety of ages; these modules are designed so that the students learn by playing. The aim is for our students to be able to understand and use such technologies for work and play, while also appreciating the consequent ethical and social issues.
The transfer of knowledge is of course the main objective of our school, and in that respect, we have high aspirations. However, childhood and adolescence are times when many personal skills and behaviours are developed which eventually will be of benefit to each child. We assist our students in their personal development, notably by offering them sophrology classes. There are numerous benefits to such a class, such as helping to achieve peacefulness, better concentration and improved stress management.
We believe that art and culture provide an important balance to theoretical knowledge. Amongst our extracurricular activities, Street Art is a good example of the freedom of expression and creativity that should be encouraged in our students. It is often through some form of art that we develop personal taste and preferences, that we discover our own style and learn to take responsibility for our own choices.
Courses and School Trips
Many parents have very busy professional lives. To facilitate family organisation during school holidays, we offer a wide range of courses and school trips during the Easter, summer and autumn holidays.
Your children can become pirates, fairies, cooks, elite athletes or adventurers!
Some of these courses are held in German.
