Lower Austrian International School considers the interaction of students and teachers from various cultural backgrounds the cornerstone of international education. In LAIS communication on the academic field and in sports reaches beyond national boundaries, and is intended to encourage students to appreciate cultural differences as something that enriches their wealth of experience.
We actively promote our students’ sense of identity as well as their tolerance and appreciation of various cultures by stimulating their curiosity and encouraging the idea of lifelong learning. Hence international education in our school aims at mutual understanding and students’ sense of openness for influences that go beyond national boundaries.
In this way we hope to develop caring, curious and responsible young world citizens who are aware of the importance of intercultural understanding, honesty and respect. These approaches are a crucial component of our school philosophy as we exclusively work with young semi-professional athletes who possess and require an increased level of open- and international-mindedness, which sport as a unifying phenomenon promotes and demands.
Being surrounded by Lower Austria’s unique nature and wildlife, it has always been our aim to support our students in developing an environmental awareness and responsibility. Only then do we feel that we can succeed in kindling in our students the reverence necessary to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
