Principal's Message





The year 2004 marked the beginning of an era as the gates of Lakeland Inter American School opened to cater to the education needs. Situated in Ratmalana, Walagamba Mawatha, Off Borupana Road, this International school was created with an education in character building, leadership, extra co-curricular activities with academics and along with a very strong, dedicated and capable team of staff who became the driving force in the growth of the school. The teachers work in collaboration to develop a school culture that values teaching and learning.

They encourage all students to strive to achieve their best with academic learning social skills. School spirit and sense of service to others. They support and guide the students to be thinkers and enquirers, who wonder and pose questions. We offer our learners a comprehensive education from Nursery (2 1/2 yrs) to advanced level classes. we are a caring community where students needs are a priority and where traditional and modern western educational values are respected and encouraged to co-exist. Nursery students will join the primary school in their selected stream (British Curriculum (Edexcel) / National Curriculum) after their Nursery education is completed. The development of the school providing two syllabuses has been significant

Our excellent results in IGCSE O/L, AS and A2 examinations bear testimony to the excellence of the teaching staff who create challenging and stimulating learning environment. The school provides many facilities to the students including a school bus service which is operated in the morning and afternoon for the primary and upper school .
