Welcome to the Lower School

The Lower School, with its state-of-the-art facilities, offers an integrated approach to learning, connected to the lives of our students, whatever their language or cultural backgrounds.

We promote a passion for thinking and learning among both students and faculty together with an increasing understanding of themselves and their world through critical inquiry, problem solving, discovery and reflection. Students are inspired to take initiative, be innovative and resilient, collaborate with others, all within a caring international environment.

Our inquiry-based academic programme emphasises mathematical, language and technology 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 Early Years 3 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 their interests and  life-long skills, providing opportunities to work within a broad age-range in the Lower School and, in some cases, with Upper School partners. We believe that student inquiry and play are essential to their well-being, 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.
