Accreditation

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 also fully accredited with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Council of International Schools (CIS). LIS is a member of the Association of International Schools in Africa (AISA) and the WIDA International School Consortium.

    Take three ambitious year 12 LIS students, a great medical cause and the highest mountain on the African continent and you have a recipe for a truly inspiring life experience. Our ‘Trek for Meds’ team including Molly, Nabeeha and Denise successfully planned and completed an expedition to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa! Their collective goal was to raise money to buy malaria preventative medicine and tests to distribute to families in rural areas of Angola. Malaria is a recurring cause of child mortality in Angola. The Trek for Meds team received tremendous encouragement and recognition from their immediate and global communities. The overwhelming support helped the team to conquer the mountain and smash their original fundraising goal of USD3,000. This is service leadership in its purest form. In the spirit of our mission statement, I am confident this amazing story will inspire many other students to find a unique way to ‘thrive in the world’.
