The Léman International School


Léman International School - Chengdu serves children from ages 3 to 15 (PreK3 to Grade 10) and will add Grades 11 and 12 in the following years. 
The school is part of an international group of schools known as the Meritas International Family of Schools. The organization is based in the USA with 10 schools in the USA, China, Switzerland and Mexico.  The schools share a common educational framework while offering curriculum combinations that reflect the clientele of each school.  Léman International School has students from 25 different countries and therefore offers an international curriculum with the commitment to support students in transition. 
The Primary School curriculum is based upon the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) currently in 1000 schools in 65 countries.  The Middle School is based upon the extended version of the IPC known as the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).  Grades 9 and 10 have a pre-IB/pre-AP curriculum with high level academics being the focus.  The school will initially offer AP courses and then the IB Diploma once approval is gained. 

The school has world class facilities on an extensive campus.  Built to hold over 1000 students, the school has fully equipped modern classrooms (many with interactive whiteboards), science laboratories, an art studio, music studio, I.T. rooms, gymnasium, swimming pool and large outdoor sports activities.
Transportation for all students is available.  We collect students from all over the city.  Travel time varies from 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on location and traffic.
The school acts as a community resource for sports and community activities.  The school hosts regular events such as CYSL as well as international sporting events for its students.  Community groups and associations also use the campus.  The school also offers a Swim School for all the foreign community.
LIS is committed to provide an exceptional education for all of its students.  To that end, all teachers are fully qualified, experienced and in almost all cases have worked in other international schools.  The passion is there to be the school each student and parent deserves.
