Ecole Internationale de Genève – La Châtaigneraie

La Châtaigneraie campus is in Founex, in the Canton de Vaud, just 20 minutes from Geneva. Set among farmland, overlooking Lake Geneva, the campus has stunning views of the Alps and the Jura.

With a mix of historic and brand-new buildings, the campus is split into a Primary and Secondary school. Both schools are equipped with the latest ICT equipment, and student learning is optimised through specialist classrooms for different subjects, two multimedia and library centres, an auditorium, several sports halls, IT suites, a music studio and a theatre.

Beyond the classroom students benefit from two cafeterias, a sports complex including an all-weather football pitch and basketball court and a number of green areas for their general recreation.

Ecolint is a fully inclusive school, and very proud to have Geneva’s only dedicated pedagogical programme for children with moderate to severe learning difficulties, with over 50 specialist educators trained to help with a full range of differences.
