The International School of Luxembourg is an independent, non-profit
day school focused upon students from the local international community.
Ability to profit from the school's academic program is the prime
criterion for admission. Thirty-eight nationalities are represented,
predominately from Europe (54%), North America (23%), and Asia (16%).
The Board of Directors is composed of elected parents and leaders
from the greater community. The Luxembourg government offers significant
support by providing the schools excellent facilities. In addition,
the school has successfully developed a 'partnership' with local businesses
that includes capital support.
The International School of Luxembourg school year begins in early
September and ends in late June. There are two divisions of similar
size. The Lower School extends from pre-school (age 3) to 5th grade.
The Upper School division includes both the middle (6th to 8th grades)
and high school programs. The average faculty member has fifteen
years of teaching experience, and has been on the staff for ten
years. Teachers are recruited worldwide.
