Parent testimonial
“As a parent, I felt that studying at Brillantmont was probably the happiest period of my son’s life. What attracted me most to Brillantmont was its small size and long history, which set it apart from any other Switzerland boarding schools. Its small size allowed my son to develop his personal talents according to his interests, including the freedom to choose his favourite courses, play his favourite sports and even choose who to live next door to, enjoying the beautiful view of Lake Geneva from his window every day. Brillantmont’s long history allows it to maintain a rigorous teaching style. My son could communicate directly with every experienced teacher, so as to achieve good grades of all A+, which also helped him get admitted to University College London in the UK as he wished. I always share my feelings about Brillantmont with my friends and hope that their children can also have such a happy high school life.”
