Mission and Aims
The International School of Lausanne is committed to excellence in education; it strives to fulfill the unique potential of each student in a supportive and challenging holistic learning environment that prepares him or her for continuing education and an active and responsible role in a multicultural world.
We will help our students become lifelong learners; be knowledgeable and effective communicators; be thinkers, inquirers and risk-takers in learning; be principled and open-minded in spirit; be healthy and happy in life; be reflective, caring and balanced in their outlook; in short, to develop and fulfill their unique potential.
We aim to develop an attitude of individual responsibility, based upon the values of honesty, respect, self-control, equality, and care and concern for others.
We offer an international, holistic education in English that provides a strong intellectual, physical, social and emotional foundation.
We encourage our community in education to work collaboratively in a supportive and respectful atmosphere to develop and maintain a school known for excellence.
We encourage students to understand and appreciate their own cultures and personal histories, as well as others, and to be open to differing perspectives, values and traditions.
