Brillantmont International School Lausanne (Brillantmont School) reviews

Nikolay and Valeria

Even at the stage of selecting a school for a child Smapse experts advised us to take into account not only England (as we thought at first) but also Switzerland - there is a very high level of education, services and services (albeit, prices Even higher than in Great Britain ). But together with the consultant we managed to find a suitable school both in quality and price - according to reviews (including), we stopped atBrillantmont International School Lausanne . Many thanks to the patient and qualified specialists Smapse: we really were very picky, but the consultants never showed discontent, were very attentive and polite, tried to take into account all our wants and demands.

At school the child learns at GCSE : then he will go to the preparatory pre-university course and will already go to university (though not the fact that in Switzerland). I like very much that in Brillantmont International School Lausanne very carefully study languages: English and French as the rest (this is mandatory for everyone), many elective classes (Egor goes to the Italian course). Later, knowing several languages, it will be easier to settle abroad and get a higher education. Another plus is an attentive approach to children: you can always ask for additional counseling or individual lessons, teachers can help in the implementation of lessons, supportive lessons are organized after the basic training - you can come and listen to the topic again. For example, we had difficulties with biology (there are a lot of terms that are hard to remember in English, and the child was confused) - a couple of weeks of intensive studies, and understanding with the grades leveled off. Conveniently, it is not necessary to search for any tutors, nothing - the teachers themselves are interested in informing the children as much as possible.

his son studies at the private school of College International Brillamont

When I was at university, I was extremely envious of those students who could continue or improve their education abroad. But the personal dream was not realized. And I decided that my son will definitely study abroad. On the advice of experienced friends in this businessEducation in Switzerland . Then they got a consultation in the SMASS, talked with the consultants. My 15-year-old son studied for a year in Lausanne, at CollegeInternationalBrillamont. Both study and leisure were on top. The son loved mathematics and science here. Seriously engaged in sports. Appreciating respect for the professionalism of teachers. Lives in a double room, on a full board, the kitchen also suits. In general, live and rejoice. We are happy, we will continue our studies!
