Our school

Graduation Diplomas

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).

Our Facilities

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

Two School Branches

In order to meet the interests of the different students better, we offer two school branches: LISA Languages and Economics. Both branches are general educational. Students do not have to decide right at the beginning which curriculum to follow but have time until the end of the first semester in year 2. The two curricula will start in year 3.

LISA Languages: Students will graduate with a total of four languages, where German, English and French are mandatory and with a choice of Spanish, Italian or Latin. These students therefore have a little less of the natural sciences.

LISA Economics: Students will graduate with a total of three languages, where German and English are mandatory, and with a choice of French, Spanish, Italian or Latin. There is a stronger focus on the natural sciences and Economics in the upper classes.
