In high school, we prepare students for university and to make an impact on the world.
Our students develop critical thinking skills and become innovative problem solvers through our rigorous and challenging curriculum. Students in Grades 9 and 10 follow the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP), while LCIS offers both the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) to students in Grades 11 and 12. All graduates earn the LCIS high school diploma and can personalise their studies with the IB course of study that best meets their goals. Read our school profile.
AA set of attributes developed throughout all ages of the IB curriculum that help members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others and the world around them.
We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life.
We develop and use conceptual understanding, exploring knowledge across a range of disciplines. We engage with issues and ideas that have local and global significance.
We use critical and creative thinking skills to analyse and take responsible action on complex problems. We exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical decisions.
We express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively, listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups.
We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience.
We approach uncertainty with forethought and determination; we work independently and cooperatively to explore new ideas and innovative strategies. We are resourceful and resilient in the face of challenges and change.
We show empathy, compassion and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.
We understand the importance of balancing different aspects of our lives—intellectual, physical and emotional—to achieve well-being for ourselves and others. We recognise our interdependence with other people and with the world in which we live.
We thoughtfully consider the world and our own ideas and experience. We work to understand our strengths and weaknesses in order to support our learning and personal development.
CAS is a framework for experiential learning that guides students through an exploration of new roles. Students must plan and complete a series of purposeful CAS activities with significant learning outcomes.Read more about the CAS Programme
“The programme not only makes students the focal point of the education, it makes them responsible.”
“Because of the Diploma Programme, my daughter was accepted into her first choice university. The small classroom sizes allowed for deep learning and a more personal interaction between the teachers and my daughter. They really got to know her and we partnered to bring out the best in her and set her up for her future goals.”
In Grade 10, students develop their skills for self-management, research, communication, critical and creative thinking and collaboration. Students spend six months independently pursuing a passion project with a global context, supported by a dedicated staff member.Read More About the Personal Project
