Small School, Big Heart
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.
Learning happens when teacher-scaffolded and child initiated experiences are harnessed by children’s natural curiosity.
In the Primary School, our children learn in a happy, stimulating and safe environment.
When students are in Year 8 and Year 9 at JFK, the school starts working closely with the parents and the students.
