LISA is a university-preparatory general education school and we therefore offer the Austrian AHS Reifeprüfung (“Matura”) to those students who speak German as a mother tongue, and who have taken a German mother tongue language course. The AHS Reifeprüfung includes oral and written exams and a written report (Vorwissenschaftliche Arbeit, VWA). Most LISA students complete both the Austrian Reifeprüfung as well as the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB DP). Both IB DP as well as the Reifeprüfung enable students to continue their studies at universities and universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulen, FHs).
The library holds over 15000 books on various subjects in English, German and French. This library also provides a study place and computers for research. Our drama room allows for our students to exhibit their musical and dramatic performance skills throughout the year. The success of this performance can be attributed to the value LISA ascribes to various extracurricular activities in music, ensemble, art, choir and drama. LISA pupils have the opportunity to perform on our amphitheater stage. This ‘Theatron’ is situated in the garden of the school. Our science labs (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) enables the students to practically apply the theoretical materials learned in class. With PCs, the computer lab offers the possibility for intensive training in computer skills. There are 3 computer rooms available. The equipment is shared with the other two school branches of the Europagymnasium. Each class has a laptop and projector and teachers have easy access to multimedia teaching materials for use in lessons. Map of school building: Raumplan
