Helping to develop intelligent and confident students is our specialty. However, high school is only the start. Diplomas serve as gateways to continue higher education. A student is only able to study in the schools that the diploma supports. That is why we prepare our students with the potential to earn not one, but three, diplomas at graduation. LIH aims to give students access to the plethora of universities and colleges all over the world, not just in the United States.

International Baccalaureate

Lycée International de Houston is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
