The picturesque environment of the Swiss Alps makes it even more unlikely to imagine such a school with all year boarding facilities. International Alpine School, Préfleuri, offers tuition, boarding and seasonal camps at an altitude of 1,200m in the French part of the Swiss Alps. This is no less than refined education and pure environment at its best. Undoubtedly, Préfleuri’s location is exceptional for its surroundings and the magnificent view it offers.
The school is situated on two private hectares of playground, surrounded by forests and meadows where squirrels, deer and fox still frolic. It welcomes boys and girls aged three to 13 from all over the world, as boarders or day pupils, for the academic school year, or for sports and linguistic holidays.
The philosophy of the school is to teach unparalleled quality education. It believes in respect for traditional values and trustworthiness, and is in service since 1948. Its slogan is: “A happy child is a child who will learn better.”
Préfleuri’s distinction is to provide personal attention to each and every student, in order to help him/her develop individual skills in an innovative manner and become protagonists of their own lives. This is a conscious approach, closely overseen by a team of professional teachers and education experts.
This is why the school believes that the development of knowledge, not only for high level of academics but also on how to live, is crucial to lay the foundations of an ‘evolved’ life.
It is with all of these aims in mind that, at Préfleuri, a child is accompanied and encouraged, little by little, towards having the confidence of becoming a responsible citizen. “We pay very close attention to the general happiness and welfare of each and every child,” the school boasts in its charter.
Special care has been taken in designing the classroom atmosphere, as well as its accommodation, in the scenic mountains. The chalet, typically Swiss, has been exclusively designed to accommodate children. It is both comfortable and functional. The chalet has several classrooms, entertainment areas, study areas and a large hall. All kinds of other basic amenities, and IT facilities, are also available at the campus.
Préfleuri’s 70 years of experience in providing educational, cultural and sports holiday camps goes a long way in helping the students feel and learn their way through the bounties of life.
The underlying intention is to bring children from all over the world and from many different cultures gather together, make friends and exchange ideas and traditions.
It is a once-in-lifetime opportunity to study with International Alpine School Préfleuri and enjoy a unique childhood.
