Founded in 1927, St. George's International School combines its well-structured, traditional ethos with academic excellence in an international environment. Enjoying a safe location, our whole school community fosters mutual respect and understanding whilst cultivating individual talents and potential.

As stated in our motto, 'Levavi Oculos', St. George's International School encourages students to lift their eyes and recognise positive qualities within themselves and others and to nurture a caring and dynamic attitude in today's demanding world.

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.
