Work at BIS
Welcome to BIS and our thriving school community. We are proud to be an experienced and highly-regarded International Baccalaureate World School.
Our 720 students profit from the IB Primary Years Programme (ages 3 – 10), the IB Middle Years Programme (ages 11 – 16) and the IB Diploma Programme (ages 17 – 18). The International Baccalaureate Organization, Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges reaffirmed their long-standing accreditation of our school in September 2019.
BIS inspires 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.
Faculty and staff at BIS are a healthy mix of experienced colleagues and those newer to teaching and the IB. When recruiting, our school seeks to mirror the cultural diversity of its student body. We value forward-thinking and open-minded educators who empower students to achieve in all areas of school life. Our faculty enjoy working collaboratively, value professional development and reflect on their own performance.
There are many advantages to working at BIS – balanced, enthusiastic students, open-minded colleagues, an extensive support program, and a state-of-the-art teaching facilities. The quality of life and international flair of Bonn, our affordable, green host city on the banks of the Rhine River, cannot be underestimated. And, if you want to experience more of Europe, Bonn sits in the middle of the continent with easy access to the famous Autobahn, train connections and international airports.
Aligned with the recommendations of the International Task Force on Child Protection, we hold ourselves to a high standard of recruiting practices, specifically in regard to child protection. Our child safeguarding policies can be found here.
I’ve worked at many schools and I’ve never felt as supported and pushed forward as I have here at BIS.
