Bienvenue !

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the International School of Los Angeles/Lycée International de Los Angeles.

The International School of Los Angeles was established in 1978 as a non-profit organization by visionaries of varied cultural backgrounds who felt that the Los Angeles community needed a school which would prepare children for life in an increasingly international environment. Our school is now recognized as one of the most academically challenging private high schools in the United States and continues its long commitment to academic excellence.

At the International School of Los Angeles, we adopt ways of thinking and expression that reflect an appreciation for cultural differences and multiple world views. Diverse groups learn more from each other when exchanging different points of view, introducing new pieces of information, and confronting alternative ideas. Our school’s small and nurturing classes facilitate the sharing of different viewpoints.

Being immersed in a truly multicultural environment helps develop the ability to better understand one’s own culture – what makes it different, but also in which ways it is similar. Teachers, staff and students come from all over the world, each bringing their own experiences and perspectives. Our students study and live in a world community every day.

The International School of Los Angeles is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in Geneva and the French Ministry of Education. Our school also belongs to the Agence pour l’enseignement français à l’étranger (AEFE), Mission laïque française (MLF), and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) networks of schools.
