About Us

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.

Although a relatively young school, 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.

We believe in the unlimited potential of our students by respecting and developing their individual social, emotional and cognitive needs. We set challenging and demanding expectations for growth and support all students to achieve high standards. We foster a culture of civility where students and adults are treated with fairness, are respected for their contributions, and are celebrated for their effort and successes.

  • A strong community is built on inclusion, participation, communication, kindness and mutual respect.

    Thank you to all families who came along to support this year's International Day celebrations held on Saturday, 07 October 2017. The fun, festivities and tasty food ensured that everyone had a great family day out. People were happy, festive and proud to share a sense of their culture and identity. Our mission statement highlights that we are a diverse group of learners. We are extremely grateful to the LIS community who supported an international booth or volunteered their time. A special thank you to our PTA members who helped to plan and coordinate such a successful school community event.
