The gorgeous natural surroundings of Ecole d’Humanité make this private secondary school one of the most desirable in Switzerland.
Located in Hasliberg Golden, just a short drive away from Meiringen, its 130 students wake up every day amidst scenic mountain views and enjoy unique opportunities to explore nature and engage in exciting outdoor sports. In fact, they get to spend 6 days hiking in Switzerland and Italy twice a year!
Academically speaking, the school’s offer is aimed to stimulating independent thinking and reasoning over memorizing knowledge. For this reason, classes have no more than 10 students, to ensure that everyone gets the attention they deserve in order to progress.
The school also gives students the possibility to sit SAT exams and Advanced Placement International Diploma exams which will allow them to pursue higher education degrees in prestigious universities such as Oxford, Kings College London, Brown or NYU.
Extra academic activities are also fundamental to the students’ upbringing and the selection available at Ecole d’Humanité is not just well-rounded but rather impressive covering almost anything from arts and crafts to sports.
Furthermore, the school’s Outdoor Education Program is the only one in Switzerland endorsed by Safety in Adventures.
Additionally, students get to flex their social muscles and learn about new cultures and languages on a daily basis as they are accommodated into 15 houses supervised by 2 or 3 teachers and hosting 25 different nationalities!
