About BIS

Dear Families,

Welcome to Bonn International School (BIS) and our thriving school community. 

Thank you for your interest in our school. I invite you to explore our site to experience a sense of life and learning at BIS. In addition to gaining factual information about our educational programmes, I hope you take away an appreciation for the relationships built between the diverse members of our community and how these accelerate learning.

As Bonn-Cologne’s most experienced and established International Baccalaureate world school, we proudly deliver the three comprehensive programmes of this world renowned organization. These programmes focus on discovering and nourishing individual potential and inspiring each one of us to achieve our personal best.

At BIS, we believe that learning happens when learners are inspired to make connections, are empowered to make choices and judgements, and achieve growth in knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes.

Our curriculum cultivates intellectual curiosity and independence, while it reinforces academic rigour. Equally, our school empowers our students to rise to the evolving challenges of the 21st century with confidence and the necessary skills to grow into well-rounded, responsible, compassionate global citizens.

BIS benefits greatly from its host city, Bonn, a university town, which is also the hub of the United Nations in Germany and home to many international companies and non-governmental organizations. Bonn affords an outstanding quality of life and sits in one of the most picturesque and well-connected parts of central Europe.

Whether you are choosing the right school for your children, interested in teaching at BIS, or revisiting as a former student, we welcome your visit and look forward to meeting you in person.
