La Grande Boissière

Welcome to La Grande Boissière!

Jean-Guy Carpentier, Campus Principal

Situated a few minutes away from Geneva city centre, La Grande Boissière is Ecolint’s historical birthplace and the largest of our three campuses. With its 17 buildings ranging from a 17th century castle to modern architecture and a verdant forested area, our campus provides an exceptional learning environment for our students and reflects the school’s development over many decades.

Each year our Primary, Middle and Secondary Schools welcome almost 1,900 students aged between 3 and 18. Here they receive a high quality English-French bilingual education based on the values of mutual respect and tolerance, dear to our school.

Beyond academics, we are committed to providing each student with a well-rounded educational experience which extends to a wide offer of extra-curricular activities, on-going support to improve mother tongue proficiency and the promotion of healthy eating choices in the cafeteria, to name a few examples.

In 2014 we will inaugurate a magnificent new Arts Centre. This state-of-the-art facility will bring together all aspects of our arts curriculum and optimise space use on campus.
