• 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.

Our teachers can adapt the classroom configuration to a variety of teaching methods and objectives for the benefit of our students. These are some of the benefits that our ergonomic desks offer. Additionally, our classes also come with interactive projectors that allow students to interact with the projections on the board. Above all, we strive to keep students engaged throughout the day to ensure they are getting the most out of their time at Lycée International de Houston.

During the school year, LIH offers a variety of camps during our school-wide breaks for a nominal fee. The school year is divided into three trimesters. During each trimester, students receive a one week of break. These camps are a great opportunity for your children to meet students in other grades and language programs, as well as enjoy a fun week on and off campus!
Our camps often have themes such as living on the farm, Jurassic week, American pride, around the world, la grand bleu, Greek Mythology as well as field trips off campus to places like the NASA, Houston Museum of Natural Science Sugarland, the Children’s Museum of Houston, the Health Museum downtown, and more. So, while classes may be out, a fun break from the classroom for your children is in!
To support the needs of working parents, we offer camps during every break week and a camp during the summer. Camp activities vary depending on the age of your child. Camp age groups include 3 and 4-year-olds, 5 and 6-year-olds, and 7 to 12-year-olds.

Contact schoolLife@lihouston.org for more about school camps.
