We strive our students to be:
Middle School (Grades 6 to 8):
TThe curriculum in grades 6 to 8 builds on the work done in the primary years, maintaining the standards of the Cambridge International Curriculum with suitable changes of content to suit our location in India. Our students will take Checkpoint Examinations periodically to test their level. The Middle Yearís curriculum is designed to enable students to move easily into their IGCSE years. A core curriculum, consisting of English, Mathematics and Science is supported by a second and third language programme, History, Geography, Information Communication Technology, Music, Art and Design and Drama. Physical Education and Games are an integral part of the curriculum as is Personal, Social and Health Education. The broad spectrum enables students to explore a variety of disciplines and learn skills that will prepare them to make informed choices for IGCSE.
Senior School (Grades 9 & 10):
The curriculum in Grades 9 & 10 leads to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)of theUniversity of CambridgeInternational Examinations (CIE) based in Cambridge UK. Most Students will offer eight subjects at IGCSE level out of which Mathematics and English Language and a second language are compulsory. Most students will also offer English Literature as it is a good preparation for the IB Diploma. Students are encouraged to choose subjects which continue to give them a broad base taking into account possible future plans and special interest. Teaching at all levels will include cross curricular links, project work, group work, presentations and discussions. The subjects on offer can be found in Annexure _.
IB Diploma Programme (Grades 11 & 12):
TThe curriculum leads to the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The IB Diploma subjects are arranged into six groups and students choose one subject from each of the first five groups and may then choose a sixth from group six or another subject from any of the other groups. This ensures a well rounded curriculum. Some courses at some universities require students to have studied subjects which do not fit this pattern. In these cases the student may apply for an irregular diploma and take subjects which fit their requirements. Students usually study 3 subjects at the higher level and 3 at the standard level. In addition students are required to follow a course in Theory of Knowledge, meet CAS requirements and write an extended essay. LIS hopes to enrol the first IBDP class in 2011. AS, A2 and A Level GCE (Grades 11 &12) this is an alternative course to the IB Diploma and is certified by Cambridge International Examinations. Usually a student will study up to 5 AS level subjects in Grade 11 for which examinations are held at the end of grade 11. He/she may then continue in Grade 12 with a minimum of 2 subjects at A2 level. AS + A2 in a subject = an A level. Students choose their subjects depending on the requirements needed for further education or personal inclination.
