Institut Florimont

Institut Florimont is a co-educational day school offering 1,500 children from 3 to 18 years of age a complete education from kindergarten to the three diplomas (French Baccalaureat, Swiss Maturité. and the bilingual (French-English) International Baccalaureate). Our student body is made up of more than fifty nationalities making Florimont a rich multicultural and multilingual learning environment. The importance we attach to this is reflected in our language learning programme. In addition to English, emphasis is placed on German as well as on Chinese, Spanish and Italian. 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 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. All 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 Florimont supports students during their studies. Find more information on
