International School alumni comprise a small, though select group of people, representing a highly diverse, yet remarkably cohesive group who reside in all parts of the world. Since its inception in 1995, Ecolint Online has brought together thousands of alumni in an electronic global village. The rapid expansion of network communications throughout the world has enabled the use of the internet as a viable means for us to stay in touch with one another and to share news and ideas.
This site comprises a collaborative effort by Ecolint alumni to bring you:
Ecolint Online is actively helping to locate a large number of alumni with whom we have lost contact over the years. Our Most Wanted list is updated regularly. We are also collecting a wide range of memorabilia from our days at school in Geneva, including: class photos, yearbooks, posters, artwork, and original photographs. And our tribute to the tremendous influence of International School teachers continues to grow. You are welcome to share your memories with us.
The World Network section of our web site covers information about upcoming reunions, membership contacts, a membership directory, and other features of interest to our community. This resource is available to all eligible alumni, which includes former students, teachers, staff, and former members of the board of governors, who are invited to register with our alumni world network.
Our alumni world network is supported entirely by the voluntary contributions of our members for maintaining the dedicated internet servers and high-speed network connections upon which this network depends. Your support is very important for bringing together more than 2,000 alumni in 70 countries around the world who belong to our online community.
The Stereva Foundation was established by a grant from Ecolint alumna Vicky Stereva to provide for the preservation of the history of the International School. The Foundation maintains the primary collection of documents, photographs, and other archival material relating to the people who have guided the International School since its founding in 1924.
Among the items in this collection are the personal papers of Arthur Sweetser, of the school founders, those of Robert Leach, who created the original Student's United Nations and also led the creation of the International Baccalaureate, and those of Mme. Maurette who became the first director of the United Nations International School.
The Stereva collection includes most every school publication over the past 80 years and is a fascinating resource for those who are interested in tracing their own experiences while attending the International School. The collection's curator is Michael Rowe, who has succeeded to the post following the retirement of Richard Vyvyan. Richard Vyvyan remains active with the Foundation.
The Association des Amies is a charitable foundation organized to support a scholarship fund for students wishing to attend the International School. It has provided financial assistance to a number of young people to enable them to complete the International Baccalaureate. The Association des Amies is funded through voluntary donations from alumni, parents, community organizations, and other friends of our school.
The address of the Association is:
