This is to share my experience as father regarding my son Luka, who studied at Monte Rosa. It is with greatest pleasure that I acknowledge how his academic and personal backgrounds evolved and developed during his stay at this school. Not only did he seem independent and motivated, when he came back, but it was clear, that the encouragement he received, really put him to the right mind-set and turned him more oriented to his future, with an understanding of his own educational goals. A result that is so hard to achieve given Luka's young age. I feel really lucky that my son was able to attend this school and get to socialize with his new friends, as well as friendly, attentive and professional academic and organizational staff. I would gladly recommend Monte Rosa to other parents interested in a boarding school in Switzerland.
Ever since I left Monte Rosa, I feel like I left my home. The amount of effort my teachers put on me and the valuable lessons taught have helped me during challenging times. When I was a student, my teachers told me that I would be a great leader, they told me to see the real potential in me. Now that I’m a law student, president of a Rotary club and a law intern, I feel that I owe it all to Monte Rosa. This school taught me valuable lessons with a patience only my family would show.
