• About Us

          Forging future leaders for a globalized world, right here in Texas.

          Future leaders are not born, they are educated. And now more than ever, the world needs great leaders. Give your young student the best opportunity to become one of them at the Lycée International de Houston.

          When you choose a school, you choose the community in which your child and your family will live and grow for the coming years. That community matters, immensely: it must enrich, support, and inspire your child and family, all in equal measure. Our community has prepared students to navigate the world with confidence and empathy. We achieve this through rigorous bilingual, French, and International Baccalaureate education programs, and a vibrant school culture strengthened by multilingual, multinational educators, and families. Your student will develop the integrity, intelligence, and adaptability that are integral to forging exceptional international leaders. Your student will learn to master French and helping them cultivate a well-rounded, open-minded, and respectful worldview.

        • Passport to the World

          We are delighted that you have decided to explore the Lycée International de Houston Bilingual School. We appreciate that choosing the right school for your child is an important decision and we are here to help as you move through the admissions process.

          Our school offers a unique opportunity for your child to become fully bilingual, opening up to your child a future that extends beyond borders! Give your child a head start through a bilingual educational experience unlike any other in a safe, fun, and enriching environment. Nurture your child’s natural talents, give them the advantage of knowing multiple languages and cultures, and help them realize their full potential as an internationally focused and empowered leader.

          The world needs leaders now more than ever — will your child be one of them?

        • Academics

          Creating Extraordinary Leaders Who Will Shape the 21st Century

          The Lycée International de Houston’s education is highly structured, rigorous, and inclusive. The curriculum is taught by highly motivated, supportive teachers who understand that establishing a relationship with your child unlocks the door to learning and future success. Your child will be empowered for both work and work ethic as we guide them academically and emotionally on their journey to becoming a strong leader.

          Our students pursue knowledge and understanding through deep inquiry. They develop critical thinking in order to better understand the complexity of the world and make wise choices. Our academic programs are enhanced by our world-class language immersion model. We are committed to help each student reach their highest possible level of language proficiency and to prepare them for our increasingly global, interconnected world.

        • 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

          Lycée International de Houston welcomes students as young as 18 months all the way up to high school grade levels. With our International Baccalaureate Program, students will be prepared for whatever challenges they face all around the globe.

LIH Foundation

Fundraising Initiatives


Annual Fund gifts have the greatest impact, as they demonstrate commitment to the unique vision, mission, and core values of our school without associated event expenses. Proceeds from our Annual Fund support educational programming, curriculum development, and school enhancements.

We recognize there are varying means of giving within our community. Every gift matters, and any amount, no matter how small is welcome and appreciated.


Our Spring Gala brings family members together to celebrate and support LIH. This event is hosted offsite and is held between February and April annually. We are proudest of the annual art auction. LIH students work with their class to create a group art project. These creations are auctioned off and will go home with the winning bidder. Other event highlights include a silent and live auction, raffle, dinner, dancing and much more.



Our LIH students anxiously await our FUNd Run each and every year. This event promotes healthy and active lifestyles while also supporting the school through the fund drive. LIH students ask families and friends to give one-time gifts or per lap pledges and then they’re off! Participating students run laps around the school while being cheered on by their adoring fans culminating in community celebrations.

Event family sponsorships are available as well. By sponsoring this event, LIH families will receive recognition at the event, inclusion in our marketing materials, and our ongoing appreciation!


LIH celebrates the various cultures and families which make up our diverse community. On Family Day, we ask invite all the extended families who love and support our students to come on campus, get a sneak peek at the children’s educational experience, and then we celebrate them! Families are asked to share their family background and history and students showcase their families through class projects.
