Geneva - School Report Question and Answers

Describe the physical education resources at the school. Is there a gym? A swimming pool? Are there playing fields or tennis courts available?

CDL requires PE, all the way into the HS. It also offers a wide range of extra-curr sports, more so than most other international schools here. This is one reason we chose CDL over Ecole Int. But don't expect an American type school. Each sport meets just once or twice per week with only a handful of competitions throughout the season. Kids who want to compete at a higher,more serious level tend to participate in sports programs in the surrounding communities. CDL provides shuttle buses to some of these and others are within walking distance. Because there are so many anglophone expats in the area, many of the programs operate in English and French, but not all. (The running club mentioned in the previous review does, in fact, operate in both languages, with Swedish coaches and a mix of English-speaking and French-speaking kids. The PE Dept can advise on good community clubs. The coaches at CDL are well-known and are a big part of the school spirit at CDL. - Oct 2013
