Mission Statement

Wellspring Learning Community aims to establish an inquiry-based learning environment in which students from diverse backgrounds are given every opportunity to optimize their social, emotional and academic capacities and talents. Our students will become confident, resourceful, creative, caring, responsible global and local citizens prepared to use their education to contribute in meaningful ways towards improving society, both locally and internationally.


Our 157 faculty members are highly qualified and experienced teachers; many are native English speakers. In addition to being IB trained, many teachers hold additional positions within the IB Educator Network (IBEN).


Wellspring has a large international population, with 51 countries represented across our two campuses, in addition to our local students who come from diverse backgrounds within Lebanon.


We are proud to offer two campuses in the vibrant area of Beirut. Both environments are attractive, technologically advanced, and continuously upgraded to keep pace with the demands of the educational program. Facilities include music and art rooms, science labs, computer labs, cafeteria(CCC), libraries, play areas and roof top sports spaces.
