        • Community

          We are proud of the diverse and inclusive community we have created and nurtured at the Lycée International de Houston — a community comprised of families, students, faculty, and staff representing more than 50 nationalities.

          We believe that a cohesive community of individuals from many backgrounds — socio-economic, ethnic, racial, linguistic, national, religious, and sexual orientation — provides the ideal setting for the development of respect and understanding and helps prepare students to thrive, collaborate, and innovate in an increasingly global, interconnected world.

          We take it to heart to be very family-oriented, to work and learn together, from each other, to strengthen our bond as a community. This enables us to create a warm, welcoming, and nurturing learning environment for our children, in class and beyond, which, we believe, is critical to help them thrive and grow.

          Being able to be part of a community that is culturally diverse and yet that has so much in common gives all of us a chance to develop friendships, share and celebrate our love for the French language and francophone cultures (through our programs and events), and help children embrace their multicultural background and build their bilingual identity

About us

Two languages, One community

The Lycée International de Houston is the ONLY private co-educational day school that provides a dual diploma with the rigorous bilingual education in a diverse, multicultural, and multilinguistic learning community. Beginning at 18 months through 12 grade our students thrive in a dual-language learning environment.

Through an independent, positive, and supportive classroom environment, the Lycée International de Houston encourages students to fulfill to their highest potential. Our warm, nurturing, and inclusive school offers a personalized student-centered small class setting that uses the highly regarded dual educational systems of France and America to inspire and cultivate open-mindedness, empathy, and curiosity that will last a lifetime.

The Lycée International de Houston highly structured “ONE “school which is committed to cultivate a multilingual, pluricultural learning environment that demonstrates the benefits that diversity and inclusion bring to all aspects of academic and campus life. Engaging on these important issues inside and outside the classroom is central for LIH. Longstanding commitment in nurturing leaders who will create a globally connected world that respects diversity and tolerance in all senses throughout their lives. Lycée International de Houston does NOT tolerate racism or any exclusionary practices or behaviors. We are all human and share the rights to feel respected, safe, and valued.

The Lycée International de Houston’s state-of-the-art learning environment feature the latest technology and equipment to equip educators and, through them, the learning communities with the knowledge, attitudes and competences required to design, set and facilitate learning experiences to nurture the 21st century competences development. Every classroom is equipped with Epson projectors to create more collaborative and interactive environments. The built-in interactivity application, Easy Interactive Tools, allows teachers and students to draw on projected images or use the display as a digital whiteboard.

Within our collaborative learning environment, the Lycée International de Houston designed the classroom around the curriculum. The most important element to effectively implement a collaborative learning methodology is the room configuration and furniture arrangement. Unlike traditional classroom arrangements — built around single-student desk configurations — our furniture is designed to support the interactive learning style by removing the physical furniture barriers that inhibit collaboration. The Open Front Diamond Desks designed for collaborative learning can be arranged in compact groups of up to six. Its large work surface provides ample space for projects and work of all kinds.

The Lycée International de Houston differentiated classroom respond to the needs of all learners. In LIH’s differentiated classrooms, our teachers begin with two critical “givens”: there are content requirements that will serve as destination points for our students, and there are students who will inevitably vary as learners. Thus, our teachers accept and act on the premise that they must be ready to engage students in instruction through different approaches to learning, by appealing to a range of interests, and by using varied rates of instruction along with varied degrees of complexity and differing support systems. Our teachers ensure that students challenge themselves as they grow and develop, always moving toward—and often beyond—designated content goals.

The Lycée International de Houston is committed to provide support to students that enables them to achieve greater academic success. This help can be provided in study hall or through academic tutoring, French, or English language support for non-native speakers. The structured Study Hall is designed to help students use their time at school completing homework and studying for tests. A French or English teacher will help tutor, organize assignments, and ensure students use this time productively. This greatly reduces the amount of work that needs to be completed at home and provides students with additional help when needed.

The Lycée International de Houston’s French and English Language enrichment programs are language classes offered for student from Pk-12th grade to accelerate students’ language and literacy development. These classes give students extra help in reading, speaking, and listening, pronunciation, and more. FLE and ESL classes are schedule one or more days a week as needed.

The Lycée International de Houston is an inclusive school offering an education to students with a wide range of learning differences and individual needs including, those with specific learning difficulties and differences and those who are highly achieving or gifted and talented and require challenge and enrichment.

Our commitment to know each child well, our years of experience, and our breadth and depth of program, we are ideally suited to challenge a range of capable, creative students, including those ready to move quickly through our curriculum and those who require support. We want all of our students to feel success and be recognized for achievement. Extra help is a standard part of our daily schedule, and we provide all students with explicit practice in study skills. The goal of our learning support is to provide additional strategies to students with learning differences while integrating them into our standard program. Some learners demonstrate the potential to learn more quickly and achieve at higher levels than their peers at any given time. We ensure these highly achieving students are recognized, engaged, and challenged accordingly.

The Lycée International de Houston’s Dual Diploma allows students to graduate at the end of the 12th grade with both a verified American diploma, the High School Diploma, and the French Baccalaureate or the International Baccalaureate.
