There is a wide choice of international schools and kindergartens, each with its own unique approach to education. Some schools offer an Internal Baccalaureate and General Certificate of Secondary Education. There are also schools that provide a non-English education (e.g. French, Japanese, German) that can help an expat student feel more at home. Space is often limited and preference may be given to students based on nationality. Admission and enrolment procedures vary from school to school.
International schools are very expensive, but usually offer high standards of learning, boast smaller class sizes, first-rate facilities, and extracurricular's. Expect to pay CHF 1500 at a minimum to CHF 8500 per term.
