About International School Basel (ISB)


International School Basel (ISB) is a not-for-profit, co-educational day school serving students ages 3-19 with the three widely acclaimed programmes of the International Baccalaureate (IB) at three separate campuses. These include the Primary Years Programme (PYP) for ages 3-11, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for ages 11-16, and the Diploma Programme (DP) for ages 16-19.

The administration and faculty are committed to providing a student-centered education that fulfills its Mission: to help our students learn more, in many different ways, and to have fun learning in a safe, caring, and helpful community of teachers and learners. In addition to student learning, growth, and development, the school promotes cultural awareness, respect, and appreciation for people of all nationalities, religions, and cultural backgrounds.

Since its founding, International School Basel has welcomed support from the local Swiss community, as well as the diverse industries of the region. As the local demand for international talent continues to grow, and as families from across the globe continue to settle in the Basel region, the school continues to expand. The school benefits from–while at the same time provides–an invaluable service for the global community which calls Basel home.

Bad experience. Inflexible stuff, no options, angry teacher I reported was ignored by the principal. Glad we left. We, parents, reported to Kesb(social services) as sexual abusers because my son, 5 yo, draw “a naked figure”(which is absurd), tickled a teacher from behind(he wanted to play), and my daughter,11yo, didn’t answer immediately a question “were you being touched inappropriately?” It was asked by a counsellor in the middle of the corridor in school, my daughter was in shock by the question. Then, my daughter was talking about gays with her peers - the behavior was alerted by her teacher, was reported to Kesb, too. And many more nonsense points were reported including the length of my son’s hair, and that he was watching Oddbods cartoon(in school report) - the school’s counsellor wrote “... reportedly has a lot of scenes where characters “fart””... I moved my kids out as soon as I could, Kesb closed the investigation case. Very disappointed by the school - when we wanted to change the counsellor, the director wrote me email that if I didn’t like the work with the counsellor then we had to leave. No options there if you disagree. Academics are poor. In the new school now we have to catch up with the school program a lot. Luckily Ex parent

I really enjoy coming to your "Street Workout" for my daily activity in the Summer". Very cool and easy going place even if it's next to a busy road. I also have to admit that the Entrance itself is often very clean.

After attending the school for over most of my academic carrer at the time of writing this I cannot actually recommend this school. Its not because of the teachers nor the course material. At the time of writing this the administration has repetively made nonsensical dicisions that make life etremely hard to actually enjoy getting involved in group school activities. I do have to say that this is not a review of the school facilities nor the teachers or ciriculum, it is of those at the top who are disconnected with what it actually is like to be a student.
