Over 20 years ago, we were just two families with a dream. We wanted to create a learning space where children from Switzerland and all over the world could live and thrive together in two languages. Today, our dream is a reality. Approximately 600 students from 50 countries play, learn, and grow together at Haut-Lac, an international Swiss bilingual school. We are humbled by the trust put in us by their parents and honoured to be a part of their journey.
