From the bottom of my heart; thank you. Our stay in Switzerland has been fantastic thanks to ISBerne!
We appreciate ISBerne’s location in a safe and centrally located country that ensures diverse learning and sporting opportunities.
My child is really enjoying the school. I think the Middle Years' Program brings students out of the “child stage” and into the “teenager stage” quite well.
I love our new cafeteria! There is always a variety of delicious food and the staff are incredibly friendly!
Having joined less than a year ago, my child is happy to go to school every day and is making great progress academically, showing greater confidence and skills development.
The teachers at ISBerne are amazing. My children have been very lucky to have experienced so many teachers over the last four years.
The school gives a warm welcome to international children, focusing on social development and open-minded education.
The 'After School Activities' have been outstanding this year - thank you, we really appreciate it.
My son loves learning about the countries and cultures of his classmates; this is priceless.
ISBerne is truly international and yet homey.
The teachers are very easily reached at break times and via email to provide feedback on assignments. They have been an incredible support system!
It is the teachers at ISBerne that make the school. They are fantastic.
My child loves the cafeteria food and he has already tried so many new flavours.
The teachers have quite a challenging task to balance so many different learning needs on a daily basis, and they seem to do it with ease.
We appreciate ISBerne’s unique qualities - such as its small size, the interaction between classes and year groups, the attention to a holistic inquisitive approach to learning.
ISBerne is vibrant, multi-cultural and open.
The people who work in the cafeteria are amazing. They make the cafeteria such a welcoming environment. Always a smile on their faces.
ISBerne is perfect; everything thing works well!
My daughter loves school, and I have not once heard her complain about school and the environment. She has NEVER encountered bullying or disruptive behavior in class.
I love the community feel at ISBerne.
My children truly enjoy learning about their classmates’ cultures and experiences. I hope they continue to be open-minded and tolerant when we return to the US.
The teachers are passionate about their subjects and really focus on the children's individual learning.
The true multi-cultural community of ISBerne is a huge strength of the school. Students learn to debate each other and learn new points of view respectfully. A globally-minded child is very valuable.
The International Baccalaureate teachers give above and beyond the level of excellent support for IB students with help during breaks and may extra hours to seek support and help. My child's teachers have worked hard to help my child succeed.
We are very pleased with the teachers in our son's Diploma Program. The teachers are very committed to improving our son's academic progress.
ISBerne encourages children to think and challenge and not just accept.
My kids love going to school – That’s what matters!
Our child enjoys ISBerne very much and feels comfortable at the school.
