The IPC programme helps children develop their personal strengths and potential, attaining the skills they need for a lifetime of learning. The IPC seeks to build self awareness, acknowledging the difficulties facing the international child. At the heart of the IPC is a central bank of work units — each appropriate for one of three different age groups: 5-7 years, 7-9 years and 9-12 years. The learning goals are interdisciplinary and themed so as to be of interest to children, respecting their own knowledge, understanding and inquisitiveness.

KSI Morges teaches around 50 children between the ages of 3 and 12 years of age. Students represent many different nationalities, from various countries.
The co-education of international and local students in the same school has a very positive impact on the integration of international students into the local community and fosters the friendships between Swiss families and families from abroad.
Students are placed according to their birth year and following discussions between parents and the school Admissions Team. This way we can ensure that your child will enter the education level where they are most comfortable, and where they can excel.
How many children are there per class? Will my child receive enough individual attention from the teacher?
Class sizes range from around 5 to 17 children, depending on the year and whether or not classes have been merged. With less than 20 children per class, students receive plenty of individual attention from their teachers, so that any specific educational needs can be readily met.

At the start of each term, parents are presented with the range of after school activities available and requested to inform the school of their choices. Our teachers offer a variety of activities, for example drama, sport and fitness, French drama club, English drama club, book club, and art club.
Our external providers offer specialist tuition and coaching in a range of activities, for example Ballet, individual Piano lessons, Martial Arts, Ballet, Kick Boxing and InterSoccer training.
We understand that for many parents the traditional school day may not be compatible with their daily schedules. Therefore at KSI Morges, we try to cater for parents who require supervision for their child between 17:00 and 18:30. There will be an additional charge for this service.
Requests for After School Care will be considered on the basis of the child’s individual needs.
Parents will be required to indicate their interest in After School Care before the new academic year starts. The child’s place in the After School Care programme will be confirmed to parents before the start of the new school year.
Like our students, teachers and staff come from many different countries. They have all obtained their qualifications from internationally recognised institutions.
Our teachers have a commitment to excellence and a love of learning which they bring to the school and share with their students. Teachers are chosen for their experience, averaging 10-15 years each; language skills; belief in the school ethos; and academic rigour.
KSI Morges considers each child to be unique and creative, needing an enriching environment to develop individual strengths and potential.
We offer our students a high quality, holistic, international education in a caring and supportive environment. Our students are inspired to develop their curiosity, creativity and character through challenging inquiry driven learning. We promote the notions of individual identity and international awareness whilst nurturing independence and aspiring to lifelong learning.
