Founded in 1924, the Foundation of the International School of Geneva, commonly known as Ecolint educates 4500 students aged from 3-to 18 representing over 130 nationalities. Each of our eight schools is dedicated to the development of seven life-worthy, future-ready global competencies: we develop lifelong learning, self-agency, the ability to interact with the world, with others, and with resources to develop transdisciplinary, multiliterate thinking. Through this, we drive our mission, which is to educate students to be global citizens with the courage and capacity to create a just and joyful tomorrow together. Ecolint is built on strong humanitarian values and prides itself on its long history of pedagogical innovation, including the creation of the Model United Nations system and the International Baccalaureate. We have around 1250 employees representing more than 60 nationalities, united as one core of dynamic professionals, committed to our mission.
The International School of Geneva offers an Initial Teacher Training Course which allows achieving a postgraduate qualification (PGCE International) and IB Certificate in Teaching and Learning through a collaborative partnership with Durham University. The program runs each year in Geneva at Campus des Nations and is undertaken by trainees accepted onto the course by Durham University who wish to train to teach primary or secondary students in an international context.

We prepare students for membership of communities that are socially and culturally diverse, for citizenship, and for engagement with the political, ethical, and environmental challenges of their times. We expect them to want to take an active part in making their world a better place and one that is based on the mutual understanding, respect, and shared values to which the school has been committed throughout its long history.
The International School of Geneva serves both the international and local communities of the Geneva area. We are committed to preparing students to live in a multilingual and multicultural world and, as a bilingual Foundation, to develop their fluency in both English and French.
The school exists for the sake of its students and is committed to a continual re-evaluation of their needs in the light of social, economic, and cultural change. The school strives continually to promote excellence in all aspects of its provision, to do better than its previous best, and to model the values that it encourages in its students.
