Boarding

Welcome to
the EIS Boarding
Community

Exupery International School is located a convenient, 15 minutes from Riga and Jurmala, and just 10 minutes from the international airport.

The Boaridng school territory of Exupery is a large 2.5 hectares, split over three campus buildings with a total classroom area of more than 12,000 square meters. The Senior School and boarding accommodation completed in 2020 was designed by the famous Latvian architect Juris Lasis and welcomes its first boarders in September 2021.

As is the norm in many family homes the kitchen and lounge area form the heart of the boarding house, our three lounge spaces feature a cozy kitchenette, which is a popular place for boarders to relax; when they are not completing their homework or taking part in the large number of evening activities from cinema trips to sports competitions our boarders are kept busy!

About Latvia

Exupery International School aims to be flexible about our boarding arrangements and whenever bed spaces allow, to take on temporary boarders for a night or two, or longer on request.

As young people become more independent, they learn to take responsibility for themselves. Life within a boarding house is often the first steps in developing their experience of independence. Our family-style atmosphere is structured to allow new boarders to settle in quickly, with older pupils in a position to nurture younger people. This ensures our 100 boarders have a home from home, where they feel included, comfortable, and appreciated within a positive, safe environment that values all of its members.

As a boarder at Exupery International School will enjoy the benefits of state-of-the-art facilities, warm relationships, and a blended atmosphere of academic and fun combined with high standards of pastoral care. Boarding pupils will also access a comprehensive programme of after school and weekend activities, trips and enrichment opportunities.

Our high levels of staffing within the boarding house during the week and weekend will ensure the boarders have the support and care they need. With boarding split on three floors, with rooms of two or three pupils, it will feel as though every evening is a sleep over. Our en-suite rooms and large community lounges and kitchens provide pupils with the added comforts within a “home from home” feel.
