Our school

Ecole Riviera provides a warm, secure and welcoming environment to our pupils, giving them an excellent start in their schooling.

Ecole Riviera in numbers:

  • The nursery has places for 17 children per day.
  • The pre-school class, located in a house attached to the school, has places for 12 children per day.
  • The infant school (Years 1 and 2) and primary classes (Years 3 to 8) have places for 125 pupils on the campus, located in the heart of Montreux.

We have lovely modern classrooms, equipped with interactive whiteboards and computers. The school has a large dining room, a theatre, a library and a craft room. For sporting activities we use the community halls in Montreux.

English is introduced in the pre-school class. In years 1 and 2, classes are taught in both languages in equal proportion, i.e. 50% of the time in French and 50% of the time in English. In the infant school, they are taught for between 55% and 60% of the time in French and between 40% and 45% of the time in English.

Ecole Riviera employs qualified and motivated teachers and teaching assistants who are actively involved in day-to-day work with the pupils. In addition, we are proud of our low staff turnover. Many teachers have been with us for a number of years.
