Lycée International de Houston provides a unique educational experience wherein students learn two languages and two cultures simultaneously. It integrates programs from the French and the American curricula to provide students with the finest bilingual education and brings together the best of the two cultures and educational systems – the structure and rigor of the French school as well as the flexibility and creativity of the American educational system. Students flourish in the international school setting as they develop their intellectual and personal growth in a stimulating, diverse and multicultural environment.
LIH is a community of learners, of athletes and artists, of people discovering who they are and figuring out what they love. At LIH extraordinary opportunities happen every day, starting with our 3-year-old students and continuing through the grades 11 and 12. Getting involved is an essential part of school life. Our tradition of involvement in extra-curricular activities results in balanced students who appreciate the arts, participate in clubs, volunteer regularly, and are proud to display their LIH pride. By the time students graduate, virtually all will have engaged in at least one club or activity—with most involved in many more. LIH makes every effort to create a school life environment that is safe and serves the needs of the whole child.
