About BIS

 

Bonn International School is a learning community that empowers and inspires excellence in all that we do.

Our mission is to empower and inspire students to achieve their full individual potential and become responsible global citizens.

Dear Families,

Welcome to BIS and our thriving school community. We are proud to be Bonn-Cologne’s most experienced and established International Baccalaureate world school, delivering the three comprehensive programmes of this internationally-renowned organization.

We pursue excellence in all that we do - whether in the classroom or on the playground, stage or field. Excellence for us focuses on discovering and nourishing individual potential and inspiring each one of us to achieve our personal best. Our curriculum is designed to emphasize academic rigour and cultivate intellectual curiosity and independence. 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.

At BIS, your child will enjoy small class sizes, an experienced international teaching staff, an exceptional technology infrastructure, specialist classrooms and a media centre on a beautiful campus. We also offer a wide range of extracurricular activities. These include technology, theatre, music, sport and languages. Our faculty is augmented by specialist school counselors and a learning support team to enable our students to thrive both academically and emotionally.

BIS benefits greatly from its host city, Bonn, which is the hub of the United Nations in Germany and home to many international companies and non-governmental organizations. Our school plays a pivotal role in supporting the international community here. At the same time, Bonn affords an outstanding quality of life and sits in one of the most picturesque and well-connected parts of central Europe.

BIS celebrates the great cultural diversity of our community. We value the contributions of our wider BIS family and firmly believe in the partnership of students, faculty and parents. Many programmes, activities and school events are open to all community members and friends in Bonn. We enjoy a positive and vibrant milieu at our school and warmly welcome you to experience it on a guided visit.
