contrary to popular misconception, it is not filled with snobby/stuck up rich kids and drunkards. most people are here to work, even if a few frenchies give everyone else a bad reputation.
The campuses have a rivalry with each other but this is nothing compared to Collège du Leman; a sucky (mostly Russian) "second choice" ten minutes from La Chat.
-La Châtaigneraie is the most British campus, with a castle. It's in the countryside in Founex, twenty minutes from the city centre. Its nickname means "pussy" in French.
-Nations is in the centre, by many UN agencies. It is the most International and actually has some non-white people.
-La Grande Boissière is on the other side of the lake and is the most American.
The students here are all rich business/diplomat kids because tuition is 30, 000 CHF (around the same as dollars). They work hard and play hard because everyone gets drunk all the time in town but they also get great IB results and go to the best universities around the world, such as Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge. Try to get in but you might be stuck on the waiting list for years unless you get lucky, you have alumni parents, or your parents make a significant 'donation' to the school Foundation which builds a new building every year.
International School of Geneva Student: Isn't your school just filled with Russian gangsters and students who couldn't get in anywhere else?

Ecolint: Please, aren't you on our waiting list?
CDL: *wistfully* yes
