Here for you
Thank you for your interest in joining our school community and starting your family's journey with us. Whether you currently live in the Cologne-Bonn region, or plan to relocate to our area, our BIS Admissions Team is here to help you make the right choice for your child and family.
When possible, we are delighted to host you on our beautiful campus and introduce you to our educators and students.
Should this not be possible, you can still meet with our school leadership, take a walk around the campus or dip into a presentation on a specific educational theme -- all online.
Or you can call our Admissions Team under (+49) 228 308 54 151.
Whether in person or virtual, we hope to convey the experience and intangibles of life at BIS - the forward-thinking curriculum, positive atmosphere, empowering environment and inspiring cultural diversity.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you and your family to Bonn International School!
Please note that selecting the Apply button does not commit you to any contract, nor any payment.
New students are also welcome to join BIS during the course of the school year, provided space is available.
Talk to a BIS parent
Would you like to connect with a BIS parent who speaks your language? Or has a child the same age as yours? Or maybe you would like to hear directly from another parent about their school experience? By all means!
Send a note our Admissions Team so that we can put you in contact with one of our BIS parents.

She quotes her children: "Both of our children love(d) their time at the school and consider themselves lucky to be able to learn in an environment that makes learning interesting and enjoyable, that challenges them to think about what they learn and that allows them to manage their own learning and to develop their confidence. They appreciate having great teachers to guide them through their years at BIS."
HABIB M, PRIMARY STUDENT
Habib's family chose to enroll him and his three brothers at BIS because of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programmes taught in all of our grade levels. His father attended an IB school himself and wants his children to benefit from this forward-thinking, conceptual approach to learning.
Habib's mother is an accomplished athlete. We are lucky to have her train our marathon team.
