Lusaka International Community School ('LICS', 'The Community School') is an international school situated in Roma, a quiet residential district in the Zambian capital. The school serves the international community seeking educational continuity with schools elsewhere in the world. The starting point for LICS' curriculum is the United Kingdom's educational system. LICS complements this foundation with elements from international programmes where they are seen to offer advantages to students. The LICS secondary school curriculum culminates in the International GCSE
Lusaka International Community School is a secular, non-political, non-profit-making school owned by the parents. The school encourages the widest possible involvement of all nationalities and creeds and promotes respect for and pride in Zambia. LICS seeks to meet the academic, physical, pastoral and social needs of students.
The campus at Lusaka International Community School is pleasant and green with lawns, shrubs and mature trees. There are 25 classrooms (including two science labs and a networked computer facility), the Early Learning Centre, a covered sports area, two swimming pools, a sports field, a library, a tuck shop and administrative facilities.
In April 2003, the number of students at Lusaka International Community School reached 350 for the first time and it is anticipated that enrolment will continue to rise. LICS students come from more than 40 countries, of which the largest groups are Zambian and British. Many families are based long-term in Zambia. LICS also welcomes the children of parents in Zambia for a shorter time and ensures continuity when they join and again when they leave to go to other schools around the world.
