LIS aiming to offer students higher level of education

By K. NANCOO-RUSSELL - Freeport News Reporter

As the level of competition within the global workforce and the demand for well-rounded and highly-educated individuals to satisfy advanced requirements increases, administrators at the Lucayan International School (LIS) say that institution is aiming to offer its students an education that will help them compete at that level.

LIS' Acting High School Coordinator Nigel Kirkby addressed the Rotary Club of Freeport yesterday, where he described why the school is able to satisfy international standards.

"LIS offers a truly international education. We cater to a section of the population that are both internationally mobile, that is, here because their parents' jobs have brought them to The Bahamas, and also the local population who are looking for an international education with Bahamian flare," he said.

Pointing out that the school's population is, despite popular perception, mostly Bahamian, Kirkby said scholarships are also available to Bahamian na-tionals if the student carries a GPA of 3.25 and based upon the family's net financial standing.
