About BBIS Berlin Brandenburg International School
BBIS IS A LEADING INTERNATIONAL DAY AND BOARDING SCHOOL
Welcome to BBIS Berlin Brandenburg International School, a place where students are empowered to reach their unique potential and thrive on a global stage.
As one of the world’s leading International Baccalaureate (IB) schools, BBIS proudly offers three IB programmes in the Primary, Middle and Diploma years of schooling to students from over 65 countries, as well as a huge range of extra-curricular activities. Inclusive, diverse and expansive, we’re here to help each student discover and develop their passions in a warm and welcoming environment.
While English is our language of instruction, BBIS is a truly international school.
Our students hail from families who come from across the globe and share our values of humanity, tolerance and empathy. Together, we are building a caring, internationally minded community of students, teachers and alumni – people who truly have the potential to leave a positive mark on our world.
Every year, we welcome around 730 day students and around 70 boarding students, from 3 to 19 years of age. These students spend their days developing invaluable, life-long skills like critical thinking, languages and intercultural competencies across our early education, primary and secondary areas:
- From ages 3-6, children join our early education community, which takes inspiration from Reggio Emilia
- From ages 6-11, students join Grades 1 to 5 to pursue the IB Primary Years Programme
- From ages 11-19, students join our secondary school to pursue the IB Middle Years Programme and IB Diploma Programme
In all of these programmes, we encourage students to be courageous and explore new opportunities, fostering a pioneering spirit that will help them succeed, no matter what the future holds.
Our overarching goal at BBIS is to help students become happy, well-rounded humans.
Our classes are small – usually with fewer than 20 students – so that everyone receives individual attention and support. Beyond the classroom, collaboration and cooperation between staff, students, parents and the wider community is very important to us.
Growing up is not easy, but we understand the challenges and changes that occur. We support our students with dedicated, caring professionals at every step of the way. This nurturing approach – coupled with 24/7 security and a strong child-protection policy – makes BBIS a safe and supportive environment for your child.

How would you rate BBIS Berlin Brandenburg International School?
I am Pearl Frimpong an applicant and when i go through BBIS website everything is perfect i love the school. And i recommend BBIS to anyone who needs a school .
Great programs! Great teachers! Great facilities!
Right from the very beginning, the BBIS community welcomed us into their school. Our children felt incredibly settled, teachers were highly supportive and the PTA reached out to make sure that we had transitioned smoothly. The BBIS facilities are great, with lots of different opportunities on offer. We also love the IB programme for our children!
we like the school a lot. The pastoral care is outstanding. Communication seems a little fractuous - different bits of information available on different platforms (website / login / managebac). Teachers and councellors seem very competent and very engaged. The musical offer is a bit thin - at a school of this standing, I'd expect a (very good) school orchestra for both strings and wind plus possibly some bands (rock / jazz)
Individual caring. School & teachers try hard to understand every child's need & to find best suitable setting for each. School has a clear philosophy.
BBIS is a dynamic school that caters for all students in a highly personalised manner. The staff are knowledgeable, professional, inspiring and caring! I would recommend this school for any parent wanting an outstanding, world-class education for their child. There are opportunities galore, so that students truly "flourish".
