My child is finishing the IB program at BFIS this year. It's a demanding program, but the teachers and counselors have really been great and supportive throughout the process. Teachers are patient, knowledgeable, great with the kids. The students all seem decent, too. Not much drama, not many cliques. At least not compared to normal high school levels. My child found a great set of friends here.

It all comes down to the people. The teachers and support staff at BFIS really go the extra mile for the students here. My daughter had some difficulty making the adjustment when we moved to BCN. We mentioned this to some of her teachers. They really went out of their way to help her out. It meant a lot. My daughter's grades are great. She's much happier now, in general. It's nice knowing she in a good community at BFIS. Highly recommend.

Our child has been at BFIS for six years now, and we’ve seen the school improve greatly over that time. I think the school is greater than the sum of its parts. It doesn’t have an enormous, fancy campus to provide great eye candy when you take a tour. Its strengths are more subtle. The faculty members are very dedicated to the kids. They’re always available to help if kids need something extra. The classes are small enough that teachers get to know each student fairly well. It feels a bit like an extended family. Right now, the school is expanding its facilities. Recent additions to the administration have created a solid foundation for the school to forward with. Overall, I’ve been happy with BFIS, and I see even better things coming in the future.

This is by far the best international school in BCN. Strong points are: Very well balanced classes for mixing international and local families, your kid will learn English first for sure. The community is very strong and engaging. Facilities are decent and teachers are excellent.

A differentiated American curriculum from Nursery to Grade 12. Strong, fully accredited academic program awarding three diplomas: the American High School Diploma, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, and the Spanish Bachillerato Certificate.
