Learning Support Programme
Founded in 1963, the International School of Luxembourg is an independent, non-profit, university-preparatory day school situated in the City of Luxembourg. ISL provides a standards-based English language education for students aged 3-18. Students come from both the expatriate and local communities and represent some 40 nationalities. A comprehensive English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme makes it possible for non-native speakers of English to integrate fully into the academic and social life of the school. ISL is an IBO World School and has offered the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme since 1995. ISL counts two divisions of similar size. The Upper School includes Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School (grades 9-12) programmes. The Lower School welcomes students from pre-school to grade 5.
Enrolment is just over 900 students. The school year runs from late August to late June. ISL’s curriculum balances instruction in the academic subjects with training in the visual and performing arts, information technology, and physical education. French is taught from kindergarten and German from grade 6. ISL hosts after-school mother-tongue programmes in Japanese, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Italian, German, and Icelandic. Extra-curricular activities is available, including a wide selection of sports teams and activities, choral and instrumental music, and drama.
The Luxembourg government offers significant support in the provision of ISL’s excellent facilities. The main building dates from 2000 and includes 70 networked classrooms, six computer laboratories, four science labs, two libraries, music and art studios, and a 400 seat auditorium. Classrooms are equipped with computer workstations and LCD projectors; many include interactive whiteboards. A full-service cafeteria provides breakfast, lunch and snacks for students and staff. The construction of a 20-room extension to this building should be completed in 2010. The Hillside Building, which opened in 2007, provides a self-contained learning environment for up to 200 children. It features classrooms for kindergarten, first and second grades, along with ancillary rooms designated for special subjects. Classrooms are fully equipped with student computer workstations, interactive whiteboards and LCD projectors. ISL’s facilities include a multi-functional gymnasium, a full-sized sports field, a playground and access to the campus swimming pools. The construction of a state-of-the-art, dedicated Lower School building is planned for 2012.
