It is a pleasure to inform you that the BBIS Modern Foreign Languages Department will continue offering the possibility to our Spanish and French Secondary School students to take the prestigious DELE and DELF exams during this academic year (2016-2017).
It is highly recommended to consider this option since the DELE and DELF diplomas are recognized all around the world. The hours employed in training for these exams suppose an excellent complement to the holistic education provided by BBIS for foreign language learning.

Our graduating class did remarkably well in the International Baccalaureate exams: the IB Diploma Programme students completed the second time in a row with a 100% pass rate. The average grade went up by more than one point to 34.6 points. And we congratulate Carlotta v. G. who reached the maximum of 45 points! This puts her in a segment of less than 0.5% of the 150.000 IB DP candidates achieving a perfect score.
