Welcome to the International School of Lae

Who We Are

The International School of Lae is an Early Childhood to Grade 6 school in Lae, Papua New Guinea. The school buildings are set amongst tropical gardens with wide expanses of lawn for recreation activities. The school is located in Eriku on Bumbu Road. The site has provided services in many forms over the years. The school is considered the leading provider of primary schooling in Lae and has become affectionately known across the city and through the Morobe Province as 'TISOL'.

Over the years TISOL has provided outstanding service as an educational provider here in Lae. Many students have participated in the programs that have been offered using a range of structures and formats. For them there are fond memories of school life at the International School of Lae. We see the TISOL experience as being a learning experience that influences the way your students view their world. We want it to be an experience that will influence them for a lifetime.

The International School of Lae aims to provide a culture of school life that is academically and socially positive and rewarding for students, their families and the wider community.


TISOL is owned and operated by the International Education agency (IEA) of Papua New Guinea. The IEA operates over twenty schools throughout the country. It is an independent education authority. The school is governed by an elected Board of Governors. As an IEA school, our board is represented on the IEA Board of Governors.
