John F. Kennedy International School, Bern:
John F. Kennedy International School, located in Saanen, in the canton of Bern, Switzerland, is a co-educational English-language boarding and day school for children ages 5 to 14 (grades K - 8). The school is a charter member of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), which has developed units of study specifically designed for international schools. This curriculum is based on a clear philosophy of international education in a time of rapid global change, and also reflects recent developments in our understanding of how the brain works and how children learn. The student body is made up of 75 students from over twenty different countries. Boarding enrolment is limited to 30 students in order to maintain first-rate quality of care in our family-like environment.
The school year, extending from mid-September to the end of June, is divided into three terms with four-week vacation periods at Christmas and again during the early spring. Classes meet on Monday to Friday from 08.30 to 15.45. The school is divided into six classes of 8 to 14 students. The small class size allows the teachers to individualize programs and differentiate instruction. Considerable emphasis is placed on the development of study and research skills as well as on project work. Special instruction in English is offered for students who are not native speakers, and tutorial assistance in any subject can be arranged. A state-of-the-art computer network and lab, a well-stocked library and up-to-date teaching materials all serve to enrich the academic program.
Included in the curriculum are the following subjects:
- English (reading / literature, writing, spelling, grammar, handwriting, listening and speaking),
- Social studies (history, geography, social sciences),
All pupils also study the following on a regular basis:
- Information technology
- Physical education
