ABOUT US

A pioneering learning community dedicated to evolving what we teach and how we learn

BBIS Berlin Brandenburg International School is a leading IB World Day and Boarding School, based in the capital region of Berlin. Offering all 4 IB programmes, we inspire students in pursuit of lifelong learning and excellence. English is the language of instruction. As an inclusive school we empower learners to fulfil their unique potential and BBIS sees inclusive and individual education as the best basis for success and happiness. 

BBIS attracts students from over 60 countries. We serve the diplomatic and business communities and families who share our values of humanity, tolerance and empathy. We celebrate diversity in a caring, internationally minded community guiding our students to become responsible, compassionate, global citizens.

BBIS is one of very few schools worldwide and the only school in Berlin exclusively offering all four programmes of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IB) for the 3 to 19 year-old age range. 21st Century skills like critical thinking, languages and intercultural competencies are key to our curricula. Our commitment to academic excellence is matched by our belief in educating the whole person. We offer an extensive extra-curricular programme that helps each student discover their passions, and offer state-of-the-art sports facilities to develop our students’ physical health and fitness.

Our green and quiet 360,000 sqm campus is located in Kleinmachnow, in a green wooded area on the southwest border of Berlin. Our spacious buildings and classrooms provide the ideal atmosphere for an engaging school day. Classes are small, usually with fewer than 20 students, allowing us to know each student well and address their individual needs. BBIS is within driving distance of Berlin city centre, and Potsdam, and is well connected by school buses and public transportation.

As a learning community we highly value collaboration and cooperation between staff, students, parents, and the wider community. At Berlin Brandenburg International School, we intend to create an environment in which children and young people are safe from abuse and in which any suspicion of abuse is promptly and appropriately responded to.
