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.

Our New Library
We are very happy to announce that our library is now open! Ms Emma and other staff spent many hours cataloguing and moving all the books from the old library to the new library at the end of last term. If you have not seen the result for yourself, please come.
We are happy to have so much more space to display our many and varied books. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this move. Happy reading to everyone!
