School Notes:

    • Our Burbank campus hosts our secondary division (6th through 12th) with an enrollment of 262 students and an academic team of over 30 full-time teachers, of whom 97% have a teaching credential and 100% have a post-graduate degree. Due to the nature of the pedagogical program, the majority of the teaching staff is recruited from France. All speak English and many have mastered a third or fourth language. English, Literature, and American History classes are taught by native speakers. The school's faculty is recognized for being extremely professional and also personable. Students know their professors personally through the small class sizes. 
    • LILA is an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School, in addition to being accredited by the French Ministry of Education and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). LILA also belongs to the Agence pour l’enseignement français à l’étranger (AEFE) and Mission laïque française (MLF) networks of schools.
    • At the end of 9th grade, all students sit the French National Brevet examination. At the end of 10th grade, students choose between one of two Baccalaureate programs for their final two years at LILA: both programs are rigorous, pre-university courses of study that meet the needs of highly-motivated high school students. Regardless of orientation, each student takes an average of 34 class periods per week; each period is 50 minutes in length.
    • LILA's core values are: first and foremost, academic excellence; collaboration, communication and community; commitment to the curriculum; utmost respect for all individuals within the school community; cultural diversity; and intellectual curiosity and open-mindedness.
    • LILA teaches a bilingual program that culminates in the bilingual International Baccalaureate Diploma or the French Baccalauréat degree. 
    • The International Baccalaureate is a comprehensive two-year curriculum which promotes student-autonomy, independent research and a rich, post-modern educational environment. Consequently, the Diploma model is based on the pattern of no single country but incorporates the best elements of several. In short, it is designed as a microcosmic version of a university degree program.
    • The French Baccalauréat: LILA offers three sections of the Baccalauréat Général: S, ES, and L. The Scientific Section (S) aims to develop both the apprenticeship of fundamental scientific knowledge and the conscience of the future citizen. This is possible thanks to an implementation of a thinking process engaged in a situation of research through a practical approach: use of appropriate techniques of observation, analysis, description, report writing, execution of experimental protocols, analysis and evaluation of the results. The Economics and Social Sciences Section (ES) is multidisciplinary in nature, integrating the socio-economic environment to contemporary issues, within a historical, geographical, mathematical, linguistic and cultural context. Its objective is to develop the knowledge and comprehension of the economies and societies of our time, thus helping students become responsible citizens while developing their critical thinking skills and curiosity. The Philosophy, Language, and Literature Section (L) integrates human sciences, literature, and languages without leaving aside the scientific field. Its multidisciplinary aspect aims to develop and promote critical thinking, curiosity, and a deep knowledge of authors and philosophers while supporting students on their path to multiculturalism.
    • LILA prides itself on offering more than a rigorous academic program. To fulfill the goal to educate and develop the whole person, all juniors and seniors complete 150 hours of Community Service (CAS: Creativity, Action, Service). In addition, enriching extracurricular activities and internship opportunities for high school students are offered. 
    • Being immersed in a truly multicultural environment helps develop the ability to better understand one’s own culture - what makes it different, but also in which ways it is similar.  This, in turn, helps maintain a strong sense of one’s own background. 
Teachers, staff and students come from all over the world, each bringing their own experiences and perspectives.  
Our students study and live in a world community every day.
    • 5 campuses: - Burbank (Secondary) - Los Feliz - West Valley (Tarzana) - Pasadena - Orange (Santa Ana)
    • Students from the Los Feliz, West Valley and Pasadena campuses are shuttled to the Burbank campus for secondary school.
