Welcome to Lower School
The new Lower School, with its state-of-the-art facilities, offers an integrated approach to learning for students from a wide range of language and cultural backgrounds. We promote excitement for learning and an increasing understanding of themselves and their world through active problem solving, discovery and reflection. Students are encouraged to take initiative, be innovative and collaborate with others within a caring international environment.
Our inquiry based academic programme emphasises mathematical and language literacies and promotes curiosity in the sciences and social studies. The application of knowledge, skills and understanding are essential elements in each unit of learning, from Preschool to Grade 5. French, the creative and performing arts, together with physical exercise, health and wellness are developed with specialist teachers of the discipline, working collaboratively with the homeroom teachers. Students needing specific support in learning English as an additional language, academic support or extension are provided for through our student support services. Outdoor learning and an appreciation of the local and wider community are an important part of our students’ experience throughout the year.
There is a wide range of after school activities for students to develop life-long skills and interests, giving them opportunities to work within a broad age-range in the Lower School and, in some cases, with Upper School partners. We believe that work and play are essential to students’ well-being to develop confidence, an understanding of themselves and others, and their place in the world.
Welcome to the International School of Luxembourg. We look forward to you joining our community of learners.
