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.
We have completed 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.
Welcome Back to School
School year 2015-2016
JFK faces many challenges in the years ahead, but it is ready for them, and we will tackle them together with enthusiasm. A wide range of additional activities, trips, excursions, sports and social events supports core work in the classroom. This makes JFK a special place.
This year will have many focal points and I will be working very hard on improving our visibility to the outside world. Through promotion of our boarding house, awareness raising in Switzerland and the international community and by starting to bring a co-ordinated approach to alumni relations. This has, of course, all been designed to attract more students to JFK in the future.
We will all work together to make JFK a big family.
