Mission, Vision & Values

Léman Manhattan is an International Baccalaureate World School that delivers an academically rigorous program and sets high expectations for students from early childhood through 12th grade. Serving our local neighborhoods and a diverse international community, we prepare students with the knowledge, confidence and fluency they need to engage in a rapidly changing world.

Léman challenges students’ intellect and inspires their creativity. We encourage them to think critically and work collaboratively. Celebrating each student’s individuality, we foster the skills they need to grow in mind, body and spirit. Our unifying mission is to instill a positive outlook in each of our students and a certainty for all they can achieve in life.

Léman Manhattan. Each student, future prepared.


The greatest lasting impact of a Léman education will be the achievement of our students and the contributions they make to their communities and to the world.

Preparing each student for a future filled with personal growth, fulfillment and success defines, unifies and inspires everyone and everything we do at Léman Manhattan.

Inclusion Statement

Léman Manhattan Preparatory School is a community of diverse cultures, languages and countries of origin, which draws unity through the acknowledgement and celebration of our differences. As a mosaic of individuals who believe everyone should feel safe and respected, we strive to facilitate opportunities for meaningful engagement with openness and empathy. This process of communication is integral to fostering a just and harmonious place of learning.

Ours is an inclusive school where students, families, caregivers, faculty and staff are supported equally and where each unique identity, voice, ideological viewpoint and experience is valued. We honor all members of our community, diverse in: ability, age, appearance, belief system, citizenship, culture, family structure, gender, gender identity, language, learning style, national origin, political view, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic level and all other protected characteristics.

Committed to sustaining an environment free of harassment in any form, including bullying and discrimination, we maintain that the work of inclusion is a responsibility held by all and done for all, person to person. We embrace this challenging, yet rewarding opportunity and understand that this is an evolving work which enriches our lives.
