Eastwood International School is a private international IB World School in Beirut, Lebanon.


Initially called Eastwood College, the school was founded in 1973 by Amine M. Khoury in Kafarshima, Lebanon with the motto "Children, our Purpose, and our Future". During the Lebanese civil war, the school was relocated to an area on the outskirts of Beirut called Mansourieh where it has remained.

The campus in Mansourieh's name was changed in 2016 to Eastwood International School while the campus in Kafarshima is still known as Eastwood College.


The school is accredited by AdvancED[1] and is an experiential continuum International Baccalaureate World School offering the PYP, MYP and IBDP classes.
