Kumon Leysin Academy of Switzerland is home for up to 180 Japanese students. The curriculum is equivalent to secondary school education; the KLAS philosophy is to give their students the necessary aptitudes and skills to succeed in today’s complex world.
Leysin itself is quite simply a huge advantage for student education. The alpine setting inspires serious reflection and the invigorating mountain air a real bonus in the everyday lives of students. KLAS students and locals alike happily share their daily routines, each learning from the other in a vibrant exchange of cultures.
Kumon hosts regular open days so that the public can get a true taste of Japanese culture as well as discovering the school and its educational universe through workshops, initiations and exhibitions.
