Feedbacks needed re Haut Lac school Vevey

Hi all,
Planning our return to Switzerland from Asia. We may end up in Fribourg area or Vevey area.

Having a look at Vevey schools, I can only find Haut Lac and St George in the area. Am I right ? It seems that the Montessori school" International Cottage" mentioned in older posts disappeared... Anyone knows what happened ?

We want our 9 yo kid to attend an English school if possible and I heard lots of good things about Haut Lac. Are there any parents around who could give me their feelings about the school ? Academics looks good. What is the general atmosphere ? Not too posh ?!

Do you know if there is a long waiting list ? Any chance to join next Sept?

Also, I can see the fees, which are quite high, but not specific mention of cost of trips, day trips, uniforms or any extra costs... How much can we expect ?

Happy to get any feedback on the school :-)

Here's another thread asking about comparing schools, and I posted links in it to several other threads. Maybe there are some useful bits in these threads?

So how will "by PM" help anybody else on this forum?

The idea is we all participate and pool our knowledge so newbies, as yourself you benefit, possibly, from our collective experience
