Associação da Escola Internacional de Luanda (LISA) is a non-profit organization with its headquarters in Luanda, Angola. Among other aims, LISA was established in order to set up and administer an English language school.
The Luanda International School (LIS) opened its doors on 26 October 1996 with 27 students. LIS was located in the City of Luanda at Rua de Cambambe, 21-23, Bairro de Patrice Lumumba.

Their mission was to offer, in the medium of English, a high calibre, international pre-primary and primary educational programme open to all nationalities.

In 2003, LIS moved to the Talatona Campus at Via S6, Bairro de Talatona, Município de Belas, Luanda.
