faq

1) My child doesn’t speak French. Can he or she be admitted to LIH?

Yes, your child can be admitted to LIH. LIH conducts individual assessments. However, starting at grade CE1 (2nd Grade) all students are expected to understand French.

2) My child has been diagnosed as being precocious. What curriculum would you offer?

We adapt our curriculum to each learner’s profile. Our methodology and differentiated instruction allow precocious children to enjoy a specialized, high-quality curriculum.

3) My child has special learning needs. Can he or she be admitted to LIH?

Yes. We conduct assessments as part of our admissions process to determine each learner’s profile.

4) How does a typical day unfold?

The school opens its doors at 7:30 and free childcare is offered. Teachers start at 8:00 and end their day at 4:30. A school day is comprised of six teaching periods, a 30-minute morning recess, a lunch break followed by a second recess (the latter two lasting a total of one hour). The final period is devoted to homework assistance for all Primary students and daycare for Preschool students. Secondary school students finish their classes at 4:00. Extracurricular activities are offered from 4:30 to 5:30. Paid childcare is offered from 4:30 to 5:30 for Primary students not participating in extracurricular activities.

5) Is it possible to meet with someone from the Admissions Department?

Yes, of course! Please send an e-mail to admission@lihouston.org to set up a meeting.

6) What are the immunization requirements?

All students must provide a copy of their immunization record before the first day of class. LIH uses Magnus Health for all student medical information. A link to Magnus will be placed on our website by July 15th, 2017 and parents will be asked to fill electronic forms and upload documents.

Immunization documents must be translated if not in the English language. For a list of immunizations required by the State of Texas, please see: https://dshs.texas.gov/immunize/school/school-requirements.aspx
