At LCIS, we have chosen the International Baccalaureate curriculum implemented in almost 5,000 schools around the world because we believe it provides students with best preparation for learning and life. Students benefit from high-quality academics, a range of well-rounded programmes to choose from and a world-class programme.
We are one of only 36 schools across the globe, and the only school in The Bahamas, to offer the International Baccalaureate school wide. Students begin in the Primary Years Programme and progress to the Middle Years Programme before having a choice to conclude their studies with either the Diploma or Career-related Programmes.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The future of our economy, the strength of our democracy, and perhaps even the health of the planet's ecosystems depend on educating future generations in ways very different from how many of us were schooled.
“Concepts and skills are emphasised more than content. With the IB, it’s not what you think, but how you think.”
