Could A-levels be the right choice for your child?
A levels or IB? This will be the question for many international parents living in or moving to Geneva and having to choose the best path for their child’s future. Students can choose between a number of curriculum options in the final school years, from A-levels, the IB diploma, or if they have a sufficient level of French, the French Baccalaureate or the Swiss Maturité.
While the IB diploma (International Baccalaureate) has become the most common choice for expat families in this area in recent years, it doesn’t mean it’s necessarily better for your child.
‘Things to Do in Geneva’, renowned local website, speaks to Tim Meunier, head of Geneva English School (GES) in Versoix about why his school offers an A-level diploma programme; common misconceptions about A-levels and why this path could be right choice for your child.
In conclusion, this is why Mr Meunier, believes A-levels is the right choice for many international students.
