Luanda International School (LIS) is a private coeducational day school, which offers an English medium educational programme for students from age 3 to 18, predominantly from the international community in Luanda, Angola.

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.

With 25 years of operation, LIS is fully accredited with the IB, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS). LIS has a very strong local, national and international reputation. This success is directly connected to a dedicated and talented staff, active parental involvement, and a supportive community.

This collaborative spirit is driven by our forward-thinking Board, a dedicated Parent Association, and our passionate faculty.

Our ambition for quality education goes beyond the school facilities and programs. It's about a shared commitment to continuous improvement. We celebrate successes without complacency, and we strive to learn and grow together.

We believe in the limitless potential of each student. We nurture their social, emotional, and cognitive development in a supportive environment that sets high expectations while fostering a growth mindset. Our culture of respect celebrates contributions, effort, and success for both students and adults.
