BIS teachers love the buzz of the classroom and unlocking the potential in each of their students. Teaching can be challenging, but our teachers would not want to be anywhere else than the classroom.
As an International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) World School and the most experienced IB school in our region, BIS attracts motivated teachers who wish to continually grow as educators and innovators. Our teachers are highly-trained for their subjects, many with Masters or PhD degrees.
Many are seen as educational thought leaders within the larger teaching community; they lead workshops, publish articles and train other teachers.
Our faculty engage in continuous professional development and embrace the idea of life-long learning for themselves as well as their students.

Almost half of all teachers hold Master's or other advanced degrees. While at BIS, all teachers engage in ongoing professional development to expand and refine their expertise.
While not quite as diverse as our student body, our faculty comes from six continents and brings experience from teaching in schools in their home countries and many others around the world.
