In the Primary School, lessons are in French and English. Our goal is to build a solid academic foundation and develop effective methodologies with regard to independent learning strategies. From Year 5 onwards, students have the added advantage of German lessons in their weekly lesson plans. Our programmes are designed to enable the children to acquire solid foundation. A modern computer room helps to promote this essential aspect in every class. There are frequent curriculum-focused study trips as learning in École Riviera extends beyond the confines of the classroom. The transition cycle (Years 7 to 8) is intended to prepare the pupils for starting secondary school. The focus is on consolidating foundations in languages and mathematics and on gaining an insight into the world we live in, as well as on developing critical faculties that are essential if they are to have a smooth path to adulthood in a constantly changing environment.
