The mission of International High School of New Orleans is to educate and nurture a diverse learning community through the International Baccalaureate Programme, world languages and intercultural appreciation to succeed in a global community.
Developing Leaders with International Perspectives
The International High School of New Orleans is the only high school in Orleans Parish to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. IHS is a Type-2 Charter School open to all Louisiana students and operates under a charter granted by the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE).
IHS promotes an understanding of business, multicultural awareness and foreign language fluency, but prior foreign language skills are not required to apply. We are currently one of the few schools in the United States offering Arabic and Mandarin, taught by native speakers. International High School is the only one of its kind for a public high school with this type of focus on global education, foreign language fluency, and diversity, while remaining reflective of and involved in our local community.
