Learning Support Programme
The International School of Lusaka, established in 1963, is a non-profit, private co-educational day school. The school was established to provide an international education to students from the international and local communities of Zambia. It is owned by the International School of Lusaka Association whose members are the parents of students enrolled in the school, and the professional staff. The Association elects a nine-member Board of Governors and the Board may appoint two additional members.
The International School of Lusaka is authorized by the Zambian Ministry of Education. In the Primary School there is an international curriculum for nursery through year 6. The Secondary School, Forms 1-6, leads to the IGCSE in Form 5, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Form 6. In addition the school offers PSAT, SAT, ACH and TOEFL testing.
There are full-time English as a Second Language and Learning Support programs offered at all levels. The nature of the school permits its students to follow the curriculum from Nursery through Form 6 while at the same time enabling them to take advantage of the diversity of the cultures in the host country and in the international communities present in Zambia. The school's experienced faculty is a mixture of Zambian, expatriate locally hired, and overseas recruited staff representing a total of 14 different nationalities. The student body is 23% Zambian, 23% Indian and 12% British with 43 nationalities comprising the remaining 42%. ISL offers sports, art, music, computer and modern language classes. ISL has a 33-acre campus located in the Longacres area of Lusaka, approximately five minutes from the city center. There are ten main buildings, which include 63 classrooms, six science labs, two libraries, three computer rooms, and staff rooms. The new Fine Arts Building houses the Performing Arts and Creative Arts Departments. Sports facilities include a 400-metre track, all-purpose courts, playing fields, a wading pool, a 25-meter swimming pool, and a multi-purpose center. Admission to the International School of Lusaka is open to students of any race, nationality, or creed. An admission/placement test is required for all students seeking admission. The tests are mainly in the areas of reading, English language and mathematics. Each child is given an admission test prior to grade placement.
