Leipzig International School - Learning to be a Citizen of the World

To be internationally-minded is choosing to connect securely with our local context, seeking empathetic contact on terms of equal respect with people of different cultures, deepening our understanding of ourselves and our world, creating the possibility of improving both.

Building on this to attain global citizenship involves acknowledging our common humanity, embracing our cultural and contextual differences, serving those communities in which we live.

It follows that a high-quality international education is teaching for optimal academic and holistic learning, developing resilient, independent lifelong learners, leading balanced, healthy and fulfilling lives, tackling global challenges in creative and innovative ways.
