Healthy living, fulfilling academic potential and fostering intercultural understanding form the foundation of our Boarding community’s values and goals.
Welcome to the Berlin Brandenburg International Boarding School, the first English language boarding school in Germany. BBIS Boarding School opens its doors to international students from 9th to 12th grades whose families are not moving to Berlin but are internationally minded and intent on offering their children schooling in an international English language academic institution located in the middle of Europe. Our international community prepares young people socially and academically for success in a global environment.
These students focus on the three main goals in our boarding community:
embracing a healthy lifestyle
achieving their academic potential to the fullest
fostering intercultural understanding
All of the boarding school offerings including the living space, duties, projects, daily routines, and after school and weekend activities are conceived to further these goals and provide the students with a nurturing and safe environment.
Young people in Europe grow up speaking many different languages and experiencing a wide range of cultures. Students acquire excellent English language skills and can learn German at the same time. They experience a truly international education and are prepared to take on a leading role in shaping the future of our world.
Currently, over 65 students from Albania, Australia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Croatia, France, Germany, India, Iran, Indonesia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lithuania, Malawi, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the Ukraine and the USA live in our boarding community.
Boarding at BBIS offers a unique opportunity for families from all over the world who seek the international qualities for which Berlin is famous. We actively support the development of academic proficiency in English and in all major subjects and the chance for our students to attend university in Europe, the UK, North America and similar institutions worldwide.
