British School of Geneva
The British School of Geneva (BSG) offers the cohesive English National Curriculum from Reception through to A-Levels. Open to students of all origins and educational backgrounds, there are currently over 70 nationalities represented, and this extraordinary diversity enriches lessons, perspectives and friendships.
Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 18 students (maximum 14 in A-Level classes) so that teachers can tailor lessons to suit individual learning needs.
Mosaic School, in Geneva, Switzerland, was found in 2004, starting with 40 students aged 3 to 6, and gradually building up to reach 320 students today, with an expansion plan to reach 450 students aged 2,5 to 12 by 2025.
Mosaic is well-respected within the Swiss and international community. In a world where migration – voluntary or imposed – becomes normality, Mosaic school aims at making children aware of the richness of our differences and prepares them from the very beginning of their school experience, to develop an in-depth knowledge of their own culture as well as of those they will be in contact with. Mosaic has therefore created an environment where multiculturalism is praised as an asset, taught as a subject, and where understanding and therefore adaptation to an ever-changing world is part of everyday school culture.
The International Schools Partnership (ISP) is creating a leading learning-centered international family of private schools around the world, all of which aim to be the school of choice in their local area. Learning is at the heart of everything we do for our students, colleagues, and parents. We are committed to getting better, all the time.
ISP was founded by an experienced team of committed educationalists and operators who have worked together over many years. The group has grown rapidly over the past 7 years and is now one of the largest schools’ groups globally and currently has over 62 schools, operating in 16 countries, structured into 8 regions, delivering multiple curricula, and building on local brands and reputations, with ambitions to be 75-100 schools, within 5 years. With over 50,000 students and 7,500 staff, it is a complex group and one which is growing very rapidly both through investment in its existing schools, opening new schools and through acquiring schools.
