“I believe that education is the fundamental method of social progress and reform.”
My Pedagogical Creed, 1897 John Dewey

As you explore our website you will discover an amazing array of academic courses on offer at our school as well as a multitude of activities, ranging from sports to arts (both performing and visual) to interest clubs to service learning opportunities and much more - all of which are geared towards delivering a well-rounded, balanced education to our young people in order to prepare them for a productive life as empathetic, global citizens in today’s world. Our students and teachers come from all corners of the world, creating a unique educational environment conducive to our ability to fulfil our promise to the family, as stated in our mission. We strive to live our mission every day in every area of the School, as it guides us in our quest for excellence.

Here at ISB, we firmly believe that true education neither ends nor begins in the classroom alone. Our well qualified teachers and staff are committed to equipping our students with all the tools they may need to explore this big wide world by instilling a skill set that will help them to stay lifelong learners, no matter where they live and what they do in the world.

We live in a rapidly changing world, thus education, according to the quote above, must lead that change. ISB is taking a course on innovation in education: to stay dynamic and be a true reflection of the world today. We aspire to stay current with progressive educational trends and research in the area of child and adolescent development and pedagogy, as we make sure that ISB remains on the cutting edge of educational practice not only in Europe, but also worldwide.

We are a learning community of dedicated educators, supportive families and happy students guided by a sound mission. Our facilities are excellent and location superb.

“The school's strengths lie in the approach to the IB, the style of learning, the experiences that make it real and the live supporting events. My daughter knows much more than I did when I left school - this is a combination of the IB itself and the teaching styles adopted.”
