ELA Basel Citizen Values

ELA Basel aims to nurture future citizens who make a positive contribution to their community. We have developed a set of six ELA Basel Citizen Values that underpin our Mission Statement.

ELA Basel citizens are:

  • Independent Thinkers
  • Effective Communicators
  • Principled
  • Resilient
  • Collaborative
  • Risk-takers

These core values are explicitly focused on within our curriculum. The children are encouraged to display them in a variety of contexts, both in school and beyond when representing the school on expeditions or trips. We believe these values support the children in developing well-rounded character and enables them to integrate in the local Swiss community in a positive manner.
