Learning support offered

Admission to the Institut International de Lancy is based on specific criteria relating to the academic path of the child, however, our mission aims to welcome and accompany students on their educational journey. Educational equity for all our students is among our priorities.
The inclusion of a child with special educational needs is based on a joint decision made between the parents, the school and, if applicable, health professionals. Hence, the responsibility for carrying out any such project successfully is shared. In the best interest of the child, the school, parents and professionals must form a partnership and collaborate closely. This partnership will be established through mutual trust and the acknowledgement of each other's expertise.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Differentiation, extra work or the establishment of Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) are some of the measures taken to support gifted students.
