Primary School: The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme

The primary department at LIS follows the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) which was originally started in 1997. LIS has been authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to teach the PYP program since 2003. The PYP aims to help students develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to excel in their studies as well as their personal growth. The PYP is offered by over 1250 schools in 106 countries around the world.

LIS offers boundless educational experience for both Bahamian and international students, pre-kindergarten through year 6. Our school provides children with an internationally based curriculum, small class sizes and a nurturing environment intended to prepare and encourage students to become life-long learners.

LIS encourages the inquiry approach to learning and places an emphasis on making sure the students understand and grasp the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, independent learners. We not only encourage parent and community involvement, but we also believe it is a fundamental practice for students' success. The Primary Years Program allows the school to meet the individualized needs of each student and optimize their learning experience.
