• 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.

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

Study Hall

The Lycée International de Houston study hall  is available to all students from grades 1 to 12 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. each regular school day. This program is provided at no extra cost to parents.

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 study hall is not designed to be a punishment for students, but a way to ensure they are doing the necessary work to be successful.

Language Enrichment

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 EDL classes are schedule one or more days a week as needed. Parents and/or teacher can request students to attend language enrichment. This program is provided at no extra cost to parents.

Arabic Class

The Lycée international de Houston’s Arabic class follows a communicative, task-based methodology, and we integrate the four language skills, with a focus on Speaking.

Our teaching approach helps students to learn and speak the language the natural way, via the Arabic script, rather than via the English transliteration.

The method brings out the logic of the language in a way that has not been implemented before, which makes the learning process easier and gives Arabic the credit it deserves, as a logical, systematic, and easy-to-learn language.

The structured classes are comprehensive and designed to teach vocabulary relevant to everyday use.

Our courses assist students in building up words and forming sentences.

We incorporate the triangular theory in an innovative, non-traditional way to teach word structure, conjugation, case endings, Harakaat, verb moods and letter dots.

We teach students to recognize the shapes of the Arabic alphabet and the sounds they represent and to show that Arabic is a truly phonetic language.

This program is provided at no extra cost to parents
