Mauritius is an island republic 550 km east of Madagascar in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is known for its beautiful beaches and luxurious accommodation for the tourist and traveller and for its unique flora and fauna. The island is a multicultural democracy, the population being a harmonious mixture of immigrants from Africa, Europe, the Indian subcontinent and China. Mauritius boasts a pleasant 16 to 30°C climate all year round, and owing to its maritime situation there is a constant breeze to ward off high humidity.

Overview – Le Bocage International School

Le Bocage International School (LBIS) offers an international secondary school education to boys and girls aged between 11 and 19. It officially opened its doors in January 1990. In the years since its inception, the school has grown rapidly and has achieved an international character providing a well-balanced education responsive to the needs of more than 700 students. LBIS offers International GCSE and International Baccalaureate examinations (see ACADEMIC CURRICULUM). There are several private English medium primary schools in Mauritius: a list can be obtained from the School Office or from our website.

  Mauritius is a densely populated island of around 1.2 million people. It has a reputation for stability and racial harmony among its mixed population. Mauritius is known as a plural society where all the ethnic groups present: Hindus, Muslims, Creoles, Chinese and Europeans live in peace and where all the ancestral cultures have been preserved. These features make the island a unique place in the world, and the Mauritians known for their tolerance and kindness towards all people. Most Mauritians are bilingual being equally fluent in French and English. English is the official language, but French and Creole are widely spoken. Oriental languages also form part of the linguistic mosaic. Mauritius has preserved its image as one of Africa’s few social and economic success stories, being a sugar and clothing exporter and a center for up market tourism.  Find out more…
