Our Past

Vilnius International School was founded in 2004 by a group of parents and educators from Denmark, Finland, Lithuania and the United States, each of whom sought an educational experience for their children different from that available in Vilnius at the time. They envisioned a school that reflected the values of a democratic and multicultural society, while paying homage to Lithuanian culture and tradition.
