What makes you different from other schools?
We aim to create a learning environment that nurtures focused and goal-oriented students. Lecole believes in opening a two-way communication where students and staff both learn and examine subjects together. Through their adaptive approach to learning, they develop wisdom and move on to improve the quality of life for themselves as well as others.
Through our vision, we want to foster connections among education, humanities, art, sciences, commerce and information technology. All disciplines coexist and cross paths, and at Lecole we teach our students to exercise different mental models.
The purpose-built campus is very inviting and enables students to learn and develop well in enabling environments where their experiences respond to their individual needs.
Another essential element is the modules that we offer. We have on-site and off-site modules such as swimming, coding and carpentry, which run parallel to our main curriculum and constitute an essential part of the learning process.
Our campus culture diverse. We not only have students from different countries but foreign qualified teaching staff as well.
In addition to achieving academic excellence, we also aim to motivate and excite our students with our syllabus. Every child is unique who constantly learns to be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured with constant efforts of the school and its staff.
