Having a globally oriented education is more important than ever, and Le Jardin Academy is no exception when it comes to an excellent education and a balanced approach to learning through its International Baccalaureate Program.

“Le Jardin shapes really good people. Our seniors are incredibly compassionate,” says High School Principal Alex Ramsvig. “Our students go out into the world and they make it a better place. They have a really good ability to have a positive impact.”

At 39 students, the Class of 2020 at Le Jardin is unusually small, as average class sizes range from about 65 to 70 students. ¬†while While the school and its students are tightly knit to begin with, this year’s small class makes it particularly like one big family.

“I got to this school in the beginning of sophomore year. It really shaped a lot of who I am,” says Aiden Anderson. “One of my favorite parts about the Le Jardin community is it’s super supportive — in both ways. Students support the faculty and faculty support the students. They really help you explore your own passions outside of the classroom you’re in.”

Le Jardin strives to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect. The school provides a continuum of education, consisting of three programs united by the International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophy. The programs encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development.

While getting students into some of the best college around is great, Ramsvig says the goal at Le Jardin is to get students into the best colleges for them.

“Our seniors are a product of the end result of all their schooling,” Ramsvig says. “They’re just really ready not only to do well in college, but to do well after college. Their ability to make the world better is that really key piece for them.”
