St. George's International School, the first international school with British traditions in Switzerland, was founded in 1927. With the motto 'Levavi Oculos', the school offers an open-minded education both in and out of the classroom. The school's Learning Principles closely relate to the IB learner profile and students are challenged to become more curious, thoughtful, resilient, reflective, collaborative and balanced.

The school provides a 'Home away from Home' to approximately 80 boarders and over 300 day students from 60 different nationalities. Nestled between the Alps and Lake Geneva, the school includes tennis courts, football field, sports hall, play parks and opened landscaped grounds. During winter students ski and in the summer they make use of the lake, surrounding countryside and local sports facilities.
