About Us

Who We Are

The International Preparatory School (IPS) is a fully authorised International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Programme.  IPS  is a private English medium pre-primary and primary school situated on spacious grounds in Labourdonnais Village, a rural sugar growing area in the north of Mauritius. At IPS teaching and learning takes place within a constructivist context (using the IBPYP) where students build new knowledge upon previous knowledge to fulfil our vision of inspiring our learners to thrive in a world of change.

As an internationally minded school, we are inspired by the diversity of our community and the world at large.  We empower ourselves with the knowledge, skills and understanding to become true global citizens.  By appreciating ourselves and one another we work towards creating and sustaining a harmonious future.  

The International Preparatory School caters for boys and girls from the ages of 3 -11.

We accept students residing in Mauritius at the beginning of each new term and newly arrived residents at any time throughout the year. We are always happy to meet prospective parents so if you wish to have a tour of our school, please  either contact us on (230) 266 1973 to arrange an appointment or click the Open Apply button.
