Founded in 1947, La Garenne International School is owned and managed by the Méan family. Since 1980 two generations have ensured that year after year educational expertise alongside traditional and cultural values is upheld and passed on.

Senior School Le Roc

Responding to continuous requests from our students and their parents, we are proud to announce the launch of La Garenne Senior School!

We will welcome our first Year 10 /IB MYP 4 class to the existing campus in September 2019. As our facilities develop, we plan to launch a new class each year, ultimately opening Year 13 / IB DP 2 in 2022 - just in time to celebrate the 75th anniversary of La Garenne.

As of September 2020 our seniors will get a new home in the newly renovated building of Senior Campus Le Roclocated in Villars. Le Roc will share the same values of openness, responsibility, and respeсt as La Garenne Junior School. The new location will allow us to create a cutting edge education facility to nurture talents of each student, meeting their individual needs.

2008 - Grégory and Céline Méan

Grégory Méan with his wife and former student Céline, succeed his brother and his wife. Their main goal is to perpetuate the traditional values and educational philosophy of the family.






Monsieur & Madame de Lattre take over the direction of the school.  This dynamic couple decides to enlarge the existing building and to create an English section, which will lead to a great success.  The afternoon naps (siestas) are no longer part of the daily programme enabling the children to enjoy and benefit from various sports activities.
