        • School Life

          Serving the needs of the whole student

          Our mission is to develop our students not only as learners, but also as individuals and global citizens. Our approach to fostering individuals and citizens rests on our values of excellence, rigor, and kindness, which are integrated into everything we do.

          We encourage our students to discover new personal interests and develop their passions through a varied program of athletics, arts, clubs, and other extracurricular activities. Whether it is music, dance, painting, or badminton, fencing, or soccer; the Lycée International de Houston has the facilities guaranteed to provide your child with a top-tier education that extends far beyond the classroom. We nurture students as individuals, focusing on helping them acquire skills for life, including self-confidence, team spirit, creativity, initiative, leadership, and entrepreneurship. We give our students all of the tools to let them cultivate new interests and live an active lifestyle!

        • 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

        • Giving

Learning a second language is immensely important in a world that speaks hundreds. Language is not only a tool, but also a gateway to connect globally. Language gives access to rich cultures and more open minded to new things and new experiences because they have more than one view of the world already. They can also enlighten, by teaching about foreign traditions or speaking with other native speakers who study or practice in that language. Finally, it is a method of expressing yourself in ways that other parts of the world can understand. At Lycée International de Houston, we are committed to instill bilingual fluency in all of our students.

More Importantly, the benefits of bilingualism are not just social or academic. There are numerous reports that show neurological benefits emerging as a result of speaking two or more languages. In fact, a neuroscientist named Ellen Bialystok made great strides when she published her research on the subject. The study demonstrates both an increase in cognition and mental sharpness, as well as a correlation between bilingual speakers and the prevention or prolonging of the of Alzheimer’s Disease and its onset. This is an incredibly profound discovery that brings language to the forefront of well-being and self-improvement. We believe that the skills we teach our students can lead them to live fuller, healthier, and happier lives.

Bilingualism

Lycée International de Houston bilingual and bicultural program provides a well-balanced combination of the French structured learning methodology and the American pedagogical approach that encourages self-confidence, creativity and the respect of others. The percentage of instruction between French and English is apportioned 50% and 50%. The cross-language transfer of skills takes place gradually over the years in order to insure a proper command of both languages.
