National and International Curricula


At LWIS, we believe internationalism can be experienced even in schools that follow a national curriculum with predominantly national pupils and staff. While the provision of an international curriculum to a school population may facilitate achieving international standards, we believe that the opportunity to experience internationalism is not cultivated only by the curriculum, but rather through the provision of an educational system and environment of international-mindedness.

Hence, as well as providing international education through US curricula, some of our schools follow a national curriculum which we modify and embed into our international-minded community providing these learners with exposure to and knowledge of a dual educational system.

LWIS Hazmieh is an authorized International Baccalaureate World School for the Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) – (EY1-Grade 5). 

In the Middle and Senior School years, LWIS Hazmieh provides two alternative programs for its learners:

  1. The Lebanese National Curriculum culminating with the Lebanese Baccalaureate Diploma
  2. The American High School Program culminating with the American High School Diploma


LWIS Hazmieh students learn English, Arabic and French from the age of three. English language learners who are unable to fully access the academic curriculum delivered in English receive English language acquisition support that might consist of both pull out sessions and in class support or one of the two.

LWIS Hazmieh has a number of extra-curricular programs, including the Model United Nations-MUN, and local community service opportunities.

The LWIS Hazmieh community is made up of people of various national and cultural backgrounds who come together to learn and create long-lasting bonds.
