Berlin Brandenburg International School (BBIS) is a non-profit, co-educational day school which serves the needs of the international community in metropolitan Berlin. A Board composed of parents and appointed community members governs the school. Admission is open to all nationalities and students representing 37 countries are enrolled. Admission is based on previous school records and recommendations and the school’s assessment of whether it can provide an appropriate program for the applicant.

Berlin Brandenburg International School (BBIS) offers a full program from pre-school (age 4) through grade 12. Elementary students follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP), those in middle years aim toward the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and secondary students pursue the International Baccalaureate curriculum toward either an IB Diploma or the school's own diploma. The Middle Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organization has been introduced in the Upper School and this will replace the IGCSE in 2005. Classes are generally limited to 20 or fewer students and are taught by a highly qualified faculty, primarily composed of teachers from the UK, USA, Australia, Russia, Canada, and Ireland. The language of instruction is English and special instruction is offered in ESL (English as a Second Language) for those youngsters who are not yet fluent. German is taught at all levels and French from grade 5. Specialists in computer, learning difficulties, sports, music and art supplement the core academic offerings. Parents involve themselves in school life through membership in the Parent Teacher Organization and by serving as volunteers in classrooms and the library. Extracurricular activities in the arts, publications, and sports take place after school on three afternoons weekly.

The Berlin Brandenburg International School (BBIS) calendar runs from the beginning of September until late June with holidays scheduled in mid-fall, at Christmas and Easter, and in February. There are approximately 180 instructional days. Student reports are issued at the end of each semester with an opportunity for parent/teacher conferences at the twice yearly or more frequently if needed. New student admission is possible throughout the school year.

Berlin Brandenburg International School (BBIS) moved to a new campus in the summer of 2001, and changed its original name of Berlin-Potsdam International School in September 2002. The new location is in Kleinmachnow, directly adjacent to the Berlin district of Zehlendorf, and only 1.5 km off the main Berlin Autobahn. The school will be able to expand and develop new facilities at this new site.
