Welcome to John F. Kennedy International School
Education is the most important gift we can give to our children. Here at JFK, we ensure that we combine challenging and enriching experiences with academic rigour and creative opportunities. We offer a unique, family-oriented, educational environment where all students are motivated to fully develop their talents and skills.
We want our students to explore all the opportunities that are available to them. We strive to ensure that the academic achievements of our students are the best they can be, and here in Saanen, we draw from the opportunities afforded by our beautiful location to enrich the education we provide.
Whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field, on the piste or whilst participating in an expedition, we want our students to reach goals higher than they ever thought possible. In having high expectations of our students, they learn to have high expectations of themselves.
Our school is embarking upon an exciting period in its history as it expands, with the launch of the Cambridge University, IGCSE Programme. We have begun a substantial refurbishment of the original Saanen Schoolhouse, providing wonderful new facilities. We are committed to continuing the ethos which has become synonymous with JFK, and to ensure we instill a lifelong love of learning in each and every student.
Welcome from our family of students, staff and parents who make our warm, caring and happy school a unique place to study.
First classes in the New School House
On Friday Mr. Callow and Mrs. Arnold had the privelidge to teach the first classes in our newly renovated school house. Go to the EVENTS tab to see some photographs. This fantastic building provides the level of facilities that the school has long deserved. Come and see it it's great!
Mathletics comes to JFK
The Primary section are this week launching their Mathletics programme.Mathletics is a powerful tool for school and home use, it engages learners, is safe and secure and rewards and certificates keep students motivated. It is also a powerful diagnostic tool and helps teachers assess progression. Mostly though it can be a fun way to learn maths.
The JFK Choir sang carols at Blumen Stricker on Friday evening to open their winter season. See the article from the Saanen Anzeiger below.
