Sweden & Switzerland

Buster adore l’école et, si nous le pouvions, nous resterions toute l’année, rien que pour ça. Je suis très impressionné par la façon dont notre organisation a pu fonctionner et par la flexibilité de l’école. Elle a su s’adapter à notre mode de vie, comme nous ne sommes à Verbier qu’une partie de l’année. Cela a permis à Buster de suivre une bonne scolarité en Suède, comme en Suisse.

Wish we could have stayed longer.

We moved to Switzerland from California for the Spring term of 2017. VIS was a great educational and cultural experience for our three children. They received the educational challenges and support they needed to advance. In particular their language skills in French improved dramatically. I would highly recommend the school to any family considering relocating to Verbier. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Thank You LVIS

My daughter Lana (13) has attended VIS for many years. In times of personal difficulty, she and we as a family have been supported beyond measure! She thrives and loves going to school every day, which in my opinion is by far the most important element in a human being’s association with learning and furthering their capacities throughout a lifetime! I can honestly say, that I can not imagine ( and given my experience with my elder son and friends families) any other learning institution to be that helpful and supportive, always with first our daughters finest interest at the heart of the matter! Thank you VIS!

My son is happy there!

My son is happy going to school, doing great things and learning... This in itself means the most to me. Beside this, the thing I appreciate most is the regular involvement of the parents in the education of the children. Bravo, keep going, kind regards, Pascal

Just a great school

Just a great school. What I particularly appreciate is the following: 1) recognition that there is no “one size fits all” education 2) flexibility and willingness to allow parents to tailor their child’s education 3) thoughtfulness and lack of dogmatism

by Olivier C on Lemania Verbier International School
Une équipe et des professeurs d’un grand professionnalisme.

Une équipe et des professeurs à l’écoute des problèmes que peuvent rencontrer les enfants et ou adolescents dans leurs scolarités ainsi que des soucis des parents. Toujours à la recherche de solutions afin que les étudiants puissent avancer de la meilleure des manières et très individualisé en respectant le caractère et les capacités de chacun.

by Sophie on Lemania Verbier International School
We have been very impressed by the school in general.

The Headmaster is very involved in the school and the children on a daily basis. The staff commitment is also at an exceptionally high level and we feel they have the best interest of the child at heart. We are very fortunate to have Miss Pickard as the children's teacher and she goes above and beyond what I would expect from any teacher and could not recommend her highly enough. The after school activities which are included in the fees are also a huge added bonus and are fun, interesting and divers for the children. All in all our experience so far could not have been better and we are so happy we moved the children to VIS from another private school in Switzerland.

by Geordie Wardman on Lemania Verbier International School

Our children attended VIS for 2 years and loved every bit of it. The teaching is excellent, the student body wonderful, fun feel. We couldn't have enjoyed our experience more, nor have higher recommendations. If you're considering moving to Verbier, or doing a ski term or year or two in Switzerland, I can't recommend this school highly enough.
