Welcome to Luanda International School
Our Mission: Luanda International School builds the skills and attitudes of each member of our community, shaping adaptable and knowledgeable individuals who meet challenges with confidence.
Welcome and thank you for viewing the Luanda International School (LIS) website. As the new Interim Director, I sincerely hope there is an opportunity to meet you in person and extend a warm welcome to our school community. This website covers all aspects of life at Luanda International School, from admissions, to the curriculum, co-curricular activities and beyond. Whether you are visiting as a potential student, parent or colleague, we hope you enjoy finding out more about the LIS community.
Luanda International School is a private coeducational day school, which offers an English medium educational programme for students from age 3 to 18 predominantly to the international community in Luanda. LIS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and is authorized to offer three International Baccalaureate programmes: Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP). We use these programmes as the framework for an inquiry based approach to learning and teaching. LIS is committed to self review and continuous improvement. Although a relatively young school, LIS is fully accredited with CAISA, NEASC and CIS.
LIS was founded in 1996 and whilst it has grown over the years, it still has a warm family-like atmosphere. The students are our greatest asset and, along with our mission statement, take centre place in our discussions, decisions and community. With representation from 50 different countries there is a real presence and foundation of cultural diversity and internationalism which we celebrate and embrace. I believe the quality of instruction in any school is only as good as the quality of its educators. Our teaching faculty are recruited from around the globe and bring a significant level of experience, qualifications and passion to the LIS community. We are truly privileged to attract such a high calibre of internationally minded educators.
I have always believed that happy children want to learn. A safe school environment, challenging academic programmes, high expectations and a sense of ownership are key elements to cultivate a happy culture and community. To make this experience a reality each day requires a dedicated team of parents, teachers, non-teaching faculty, administrators and school governors with a common goal and a single mission. I thank the LIS team for their continued dedication to the school’s mission.
We look forward to sharing the LIS experience with you!
