Primary School

The Haut-Lac International Bilingual School is a co-educational day school for children welcoming children from the age of 3 to 11 years into its Infant and Primary sections.

The school building for this age group is situated opposite the Praz Dagoud playing fields in the commune of Saint-Légier, and is surrounded by beautiful views of the lake or the mountains from every floor, an enchanting environment for your children to learn and to grow in.

In Haut-Lac all children work and learn in two languages, either in the Bilingual section where they follow a programme with a 50/50 language split, or in the predominantly English section, where they still have one lesson in French per day from the age of three.

Haut-Lac puts the child at the centre of its activities and although there are many different nationalities and languages (45 and 25 respectively in 2013-2014), differing levels of ability, and varied curriculum experiences on arrival, we aim to guide the development of each and every child so that they can reach their maximum potential through an exciting, motivating, hands on and holistic programme of study.

The school believes not only in the importance of French and English, maths and science as vital components in any child’s education throughout their primary years, but also in the overarching impact of arts, sports and cultural awareness in creating well balanced children. We aim high for every member of our community, parents, teachers and children. We work hard, we play hard and our community spirit and team work are second to none.
