Kumon Leysin Academy of Switzerland (KLAS) promotes the ability to think and behave from a global point of view. In order to realize this, KLAS promotes abilities in reasoning, language, expression and behaviour. In students, KLAS aims:
To develop an awareness of the international community
As a multi-cultural school in the heart of Europe, we promote an international outlook through intercultural experiences and exchanges.
To develop English language skills
Through small ESL classes taught by teachers with English as their native language and through the use of English in daily life around school, we promote a high level of skills in English communication.
To develop mature and responsible personalities
Through a discipline policy based upon “freedom and self-responsibility” and through dormitory life, we promote independence of thought and behavior.
