Founded in 1924, the Foundation of the International School of Geneva, commonly known as Ecolint educates 4500 students aged from 3-18 representing over 130 nationalities. Each of our eight schools is dedicated to the development of seven life-worthy, future-ready global competences: we develop lifelong learning, self-agency, the ability to interact with the world, with others and with resources so as 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.

We are proud to be an International Baccalaureate World School while also offering our students the option to complete the Swiss Maturité. Our programmes are based on the IB's "˜Learner Profile', a set of ideals that inspire, motivate and focus the work of the school and help students to become more thoughtful, grounded, responsible and caring global citizens.
