LCIS students enthusiastically engage with new ideas and experiences, developing a lifelong love for learning. For 60 years, we have inspired excellence.
"The IB education I have been provided at LCIS has transformed me into the person I am today. I am now more open-minded, have gained so much knowledge, and have developed into a principled member of society. I have become a well-rounded individual."
"LCIS not only recognised and respected the differences in our three children, it cultivated and celebrated each child so they could grow to be the best 'them' they could be, no matter where they go in pursuit of their goals and aspirations."
"Teachers genuinely care about us. They’re really invested in our learning and helping us get to the next level. They’ll even come in early or stay late to meet with you if you need help."
Through a personalised approach, our curriculums and programmes challenge students to meet high standards for academic, personal and interpersonal development.
"I am really grateful for the academic rigour of the IB. College is much easier than it would have been otherwise. The IB prepared me for the challenge. It taught me the values of efficiency and balance."
"The rigorous IB programme pushed me to exceed academic boundaries that I didn’t even know existed and to reach beyond what I thought was possible."
LCIS students are encouraged to voice their opinions and reflect on their learning. Students develop strong leadership skills and take action to solve problems of local and global concern.
"LCIS teachers and staff provided me with an awareness of self-advocacy and confidence that has allowed me to fully engage in higher education."
"Our education included life skills that we continue to carry even beyond our college careers. These skills make us LCIS-educated. They make us well-rounded. They make us world-class."
LCIS is a diverse community of learners with more than 40 nationalities and 14 languages represented. We build on diverse perspectives while promoting multilingualism and fostering global citizenship.
"If I had to choose an aspect of the IB that assisted me the most in getting where I am, it would have to be the open-mindedness and global perspective that it instils in each student."
"I was challenged to be constantly aware of different perspectives, ideas and approaches in order to learn how to balance those differences when looking at the big picture."
LCIS graduates enter top universities around the world prepared for lives of leadership, service and success in our complex global community.
“I have never won a bingo game or a grand prize in a raffle before, but when I learned that my daughter received a scholarship to attend Lyford Cay International School, for me it was a prayer that had been answered and a grand prize all in one.”
“At LCIS, I studied facts but also learned how to apply them. I developed study habits that helped me throughout medical school and that I still use today.”
