School in Villars-sur-Ollon - advice or experience there?

Hello

My husband has got a job in this area and I've noticed a fair few international schools here. I want to send my kids to a good IB school and would like to know the sort of information that you don't get from a school's website. We're currently in Finland and I'd like to at least have a good idea where my kids are going to go to school (they don't speak French).

Currently the Aiglon and Beau Soleil seem most appealing and there's lots of information on the Aiglon school over at the TES forums (surely what teachers think must be one of the best ways to judge a school?) and here, but little on the Beau Soleil.

I'd really appreciate information on what the communication with parents is like, extra-curricular activities, what the teachers are like (helpful, caring, good at their jobs, happy?) and what the student population is like.

TIA,

osprey

Re: School in Villars-sur-Ollon

how has the past year been ??did you manage to find a good school for your kids. I might be moving to the area shortly and the kids learning the language and the schooling is my biggest worry.

Sorry but it doesn't look as if the OP has been around since he wrote that post. Happens quite a lot on here unfortunately. Perhaps someone else will come up with something - especially if I move it to a better place and change the title.
