Luanda International School (LIS) has an open enrollment policy in regard to the IB Diploma Programme (DP), which means that all students entering Year 12 who wish to pursue a most rigorous curriculum are welcome to apply to pursue the IB Diploma at LIS.
While we look at multiple markers of student success at LIS, IB results represent a significant amount of hard work throughout the final two years of high school, and we commend our students’ efforts and achievements. The LIS Class of 2017, included 15 IB Diploma candidates – all of whom were successful in passing all requirements to earn the IB Diploma (with 9 earning Bilingual Diplomas). The average Diploma score for our 2017 graduates was 32 points – compared to the world average of 30 – with one student earning 42. Twelve of these students earned 2 or 3 Bonus Points for their final marks in Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay.

While we look at multiple markers of student success at LIS, university application results represent a significant amount of hard work and we commend our students’ efforts and achievements.
