Now that our children are leaving the school, I would like to use this opportunity to express our warmest appreciation to Champittet and all the teachers. Adriana and Marc spent more than 7 years under the umbrella of Champittet. I must say that these were years full of joy and happiness for them. Champittet had offered them a lot: wonderful facilities, dedicated staff, interesting extracurricular programme, good course selection and entertaining school tours. They met wonderful friends and we hope that these friendships will continue. We would like to thank the school and the teachers for all the knowledge they passed to our children, for the attention and the encouragement, and for the good care they gave them all these years. Thanks to them our children became more confident, they have grown up emotionally as well as academically. Thanks again for your patience and understanding, and most of all, your ability to listen to them and value their thoughts and feelings. We have always felt more than satisfied with the education our children received at Champittet, but more than that we will remain ever thankful to the teachers who helped our children become well-rounded young adults.
Alessandro and Matteo’s new school in Hong Kong is among the top-ranked schools in Hong Kong and regularly sends their graduates to Yale, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Cambridge and other top US and UK universities. Despite the high academic credentials at their new school, Alessandro and Matteo’s academic transition was markedly easy. This could only be the result of the solid academic base they received at Champittet. We believe, that the academics at Champittet are outstanding and Alessandro and Matteo benefitted greatly from this foundation. In addition to Champittet’s strong academics, we found the Champittet community to be truly special. The welcoming, secure campus, and most of all the dedication of the faculty and teachers all contributed to building Matteo and Alessandro into confident boys. Champittet has successfully built a community that allows children to grow securely but autonomously underlined with a moral foundation. This aspect of Champittet’s education helped them enormously in integrating into their new school and in building relationships with their new classmates. The school deserves to be applauded for all that it is contributing to its student body and the larger community. As parents whose children benefitted from the Champittet experience, we are deeply grateful to the school.”
When I started as a new boarding student one year ago, I was able to adapt to my new environment very quickly thanks to the loving and caring boarding and teaching staff that supported me throughout the school year.
