At BBIS, we offer the world-leading International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum across the Primary, Middle and Diploma years of schooling to students aged 3-19. With an average teacher-to-student ratio of 1:7, our small class sizes ensure every student receives exceptional support throughout their learning journey.
In the later years, our IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) meets the academic rigour expected of globally renowned universities across the globe, while also offering invaluable experience in community service. This programme, for students aged 16-19, prepares students for life beyond BBIS – with our students proudly accepted at universities in Germany, across Europe and the United Kingdom, as well as North America and Asia.
All of our regular classes are taught in English.
As well as delivering the IB curriculum, we’re committed to developing invaluable lifelong skills like critical thinking, languages and intercultural competencies. We also offer a huge range of extra-curricular activities. It all combines to encourage every student to pursue their passions, be courageous and explore new opportunities.
In all that we do, we actively develop tomorrow’s global citizens – people who will make a positive impact on a local and global scale.
We’re committed to making sure every student feels understood, challenged and included. In close collaboration with staff, students and parents, Student Support Services provides guidance, coaching, resources and interventions when needed. And we celebrate diversity and inclusion – acknowledging and embracing the fact that our students all learn differently.
The sense of community at BBIS is truly vibrant. With our students hailing from 65 countries, we welcome families from all around the world and encourage all to take an active role in our school community.
Our 208 staff members reflect our global community, too. Coming from over 32 countries, they each bring diverse perspectives and invaluable skills to the school.
BBIS is situated on a spacious and peaceful 360,000 sqm campus in a forested area on the southwest border of Berlin. It truly is the ideal setting for growth and discovery.
Spread across five buildings, our classrooms are modern, comfortable and well-equipped to cater for a broad range of learning needs. The campus also boasts outstanding sports facilities and comfortable boarding house that creates a nurturing home away from home.
