Re: Schools in France around Geneva

I like to say: "France is very French", so be careful when stepping away from the lycée Internationale, which is an amazing melting pot. For instance in Annecy, where our kids (French/English bilingual) did most of their their schooling, I do not remember a single student who did not have native level French. No doubt there were a few, but it was completely different from the pays de Gex (Segny) where they went to primary school (27 nations represented). I guess, but do not know, that the collège and lycée in Gex are similar.

As already mentioned the lycée internationale is special. There are a lot of diplomats' kids, who, I've been told, tend to feel entitled.
