Academic - How do day students fit in at LYBS?

Perfectly. Their days are as busy and exciting as those of their boarding peers. The biggest difference? They go home to sleep. Day students are fully integrated into all class, sports, special events, and social activities and are encouraged to make best use of all opportunities.

Academic - What resources are provided for students who need academic help?

Faculty members are always readily available. In and out of class tutoring takes place as needed. At LYBS, asking for help is a sign of strength.

Academic - How do faculty members cooperate with one another to support my child?

An online platform keeps key adults on each student’s support team connected. If a campus adult is concerned about a student for any reason, a message is sent to alert other team members, who then make a concerted effort to observe, interact with, and check in on the student. If concerns heighten, the full team meets to determine an appropriate course of action, which may include contacting parents/guardians. At the same time, information is exchanged during weekly collaborative planning meetings to make sure that nothing “falls through the cracks”.

Academic - Do you offer art classes to prepare students for the respective university entrance exams in the national division of your high school at LYBS?

Every year a large number of our graduates successfully enter their favourite universities as art students.

Admissions - Does LYBS have an After School Activities (ASAs) programme?

LYBS’s Amazing House organizes, manages and offers a comprehensive whole school ASAs programme, with more than 100 opportunities for students to choose from, that aims at expanding students’ creativity, activity and view of themselves and the world, develop empathy, humility and leadership skills, and come to understand that through their individual actions they can positively impact the lives of others. During school days, activities begin after classes finish and end at around 17:00 in the afternoon.
