Preschool and Kindergarten
The LIS Kindergarten program seeks to build on the child’s natural curiosity for learning and to develop their love and appreciation for schooling.
The LIS elementary school program is designed to guide our students to find their passions while becoming successful learners both in and outside of the classroom environment. The school is committed to provide each student with the support they need for optimal success.
The LIS middle school courses and program are designed to fully support the academic and personal development of young adolescents since the middle years are a time of exceptional growth and change for students.
The LIS high school program is designed to provide our students with a full and comprehensive secondary education program preparing them for post-secondary education, while continuing to provide emotional, behavioral and social supports that facilitate each student’s learning.
Our educational approach
We choose mastery learning because more students achieve higher and more long-lasting results. This includes flexible placement in Reading, Writing and Mathematics, to provide a suitable challenge for each student.
To be able to offer this, we adjust our classroom environment to ensure small class sizes and we allow each student to take the time they need to master the content and to succeed.
This means that required schoolwork values: a) depth of material, b) analytical thinking and c) quality work which demonstrates the student’s understanding of the topic.

Having come to you with a child this year, we felt genuine attention from all the teachers.
Dear teachers and school management, our ninth academic year is coming to an end. A year of anxiety and unrest. Having come to you with a child this year, we felt genuine attention from all the teachers. Success is encouraging, but we firmly know and always remember that the basis of this success is not only the enormous work of the child, but also that of the teachers.

Tolerance is practiced by teachers and administration at the highest level!
As a mother, I am overwhelmed with emotions of joy and gratitude. My son is absolutely delighted with Ljubljana International School. Our child easily joined this incredible school family, where knowledge is presented in interesting and exciting ways by experienced and qualified teachers. A wonderful atmosphere, kindness and responsiveness, values, rules and discipline that children are very gently introduced to. Tolerance is practiced by teachers and administration at the highest level!
Parent of a primary grade student
Before LIS, my child had never studied with such involvement and pleasure. His English has advanced to a new level in only three months of study! Here, everything is thought out to the smallest detail, and if you have the slightest wishes, you instantly get feedback and someone will always assist. Activities, experiments, research, field trips and performances for parents are perfect. I especially want to note the creative direction of the school, dancing, drama, music, Art – they will certainly help to reveal talent and get rid of the slightest complexes and doubts. And of course, sports and activities during breaks are his favorite time of the day. Thank you, LIS!
A family, with three children attending LIS
When our family came to LIS we were welcomed as good old friends and that was truly extraordinary!
We would like to sincerely thank the entire staff of your wonderful school for what you do. You are able to develop and help educate a personality in each child. When our family came to LIS we were welcomed as good old friends and that was truly extraordinary! Despite the fact that our children need an hour and a half to get to school, they do it with pleasure and that in itself speaks volumes in terms of what we think of the school
Parent of a middle school student
The teachers were so attentive to the arrival of a new student in the classroom that this integration process was made very easy for our child. Our daughter quickly adapted to her new environment and began her studies on the right foot at LIS. Special thanks to the students for also playing a huge role in welcoming our daughter. And this is also an indicator of a great school, because people of the same mind gather under one roof. Here, people share the same goals, values, and views and that is why they quickly find a common language. The school also helped reveal the hidden creative talents of our daughter. She truly enjoyed the format of teaching and how teachers worked with students. The classrooms and other school premises are well equipped. Teachers find an individual approach to each child. Everyone is very kind, sincere and caring towards the students. Thank you for this time together.

I am very happy that my children are able to attend Ljubljana International School. This school impressed us with their attitude towards kids and parents. We met wonderful people here and I want to thank Mr. John, Mr. Dan, Ms. Yuliya, Ms. DanielIa, and Ms. Melania. At LIS, children feel safe and comfortable, as the community creates an atmosphere that reminds the children of their homes. Every time I needed it, I received support from the school’s administration. For the first time in his life, my youngest son likes attending school and now does so with pleasure. He wakes up with a smile every morning, eager to go to LIS. I see how he is progressing, developing his communicative, social, language, and art skills.
At first, I stayed at school with him during a brief adaptation period and I am very happy with his progress and newly found independence. His homeroom teacher created a warm atmosphere and a good environment for all students in her classroom. She is really kind and attentive to all the children.
My eldest son is also very happy to be part of LIS and he is quite successful with his studies. I am happy to hear that his level of English has improved so much over the last 3 months. He likes his classmates and his teachers. The homeroom teacher has spent lots of time helping our son adapt to his school successfully. Like most other teachers at this school, she is very attentive and always helpful. I want to thank LIS for the kind attention they give children and I’m happy to see our sons growing in such a wonderful, reliable, and caring environment.

When I asked my children what they like most about Ljubljana International School, they answered that the school has wonderful teachers and very friendly classmates. In general, they said that all the teachers taught lessons in an interesting, entertaining, and creative way. It is a school of the future, such as it should be, and that they always dreamed of attending such a school. And many thanks to you for making their dream come true! Good luck to you and congratulations again on the new building!
