The LIS community is …

Strong and active. Our strength is derived from the active commitment of teachers, parents, and students to education and learning as a community. We organize over 200 events every academic year.

Connected and socially responsible. We are connected to the people of Luanda, Angola and Africa. Students, families and staff participate in a wide range of activities in and around Luanda. Activities range from visiting Angolan schools and cultural sites to collaborating with local organizations to raise funds and accomplish community projects.

Vibrant and inclusive. At the end of any school day, you will find friends chatting in the shade of the jango, students sharing their learning and teachers engaging with families. Our campus is the venue where community members connect and build lifelong friendships. We look forward to welcoming you to the LIS community.

Jango Jumble 2018

Dear LIS Community,

Kimbo would like to thank you for all the donations to Jango Jumble!

We wildly exceeded our 800 item goal, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Everybody got to take more items than the 6 that we expected.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards,

Kimbo students & mentors

    LIS maintains an inclusive strategic plan with a systematic process of reflection and feedback.
    On 10 and 11 March 2017, a group of 28 participants comprised of LIS students, parents, staff and Board Directors attended a strategic retreat at the school. We discussed the data, shared points of view, challenged perspectives and summarised our thinking about the school's mission, vision, values and parameters for the school. Prior to the discussions a strong meeting protocol and process was established to ensure equal participation. No one voice was greater or lesser than the other. Given the diversity of the group, getting alignment and consensus around big topics like mission and values was no easy task. In fact, a large proportion of the time was spent reviewing, rejecting, re-writing and finally accepting the value statements. Many people felt strong about particular statements and spoke respectfully and with great passion to defend ideas. However, Dr. Andy Page-Smith was able to facilitate the exercise and decision making process with great skill, expertise and respect.
