Bonn International School (BIS) serves the international and German communities from Koblenz in the South to Dusseldorf in the North. Located in the green, lush suburbs of the City of Bonn, BIS relocated to a new state-of-the-art building with extensive green areas and playing fields in January 2006. The school benefits from generously-sized and light-filled classrooms, top-quality science, design and technology laboratories as well as modern facilities for the creative and performing arts.
The Bonn International School (BIS) curriculum is based upon the programmes authorised bz the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). As an IBO World School, Bonn International School (BIS) offers the complete range of IBO programmes as a coherent sequence of education from Early Learning through Graduation. Through this programming, BIS emphasises language acquisition and development, reflection and critical inquiry, appreciation of multiple perspectives and interdisciplinary and intercultural studies.
Students ages 3-11 (Early Learning through Grade 5) participate in the IBO Primary Years Programme. This focuses on the development of the whole child through the process of natural inquiry. Class sizes are small and teachers often work in tandem with teaching assistants so that each child is given individual attention. Students in Grades 6-10 are in the Middle Years Programme and are encouraged to be questioners. Critical and independent thought is the goal of these years. Diploma Programme students are in Grades 11-12 and participate in the most internationally-recognised pre-university preparation programme in the world. This is a demanding two-year curriculum that meets the needs of highly-motivated and mobile students.
All members of the Bonn International School (BIS) teaching staff are fully-qualified and experienced. Career and university counseling is provided to students as well as special needs evaluation. There is a varied programme of extra-curriculuar activities including sports, creative arts, special interest clubs and Model United Nations.
Admission is made by application to the Registrar. All interested families are encouraged to visit the school and meet with the appropriate principal. Applications for admission may be made throughout the year.
