Changemakers for a new tomorrow
The Bavarian International School (BIS) is a community of over 1,150 learners and 170 education leaders, working together to bring out the best in young people from over 60 nations, all within a caring and international environment. BIS students are supported to become global citizens with outstanding language and communication skills, an intercultural mindset, and a deep understanding of digital technology and modern collaboration.
BIS is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, spanning two campuses in Munich-Schwabing and Haimhausen, where talented, globally-focused educators care for students ages three to 18. As a private, non-profit, all-day school, BIS ranks among the best international schools in Germany and in Europe (IB Diploma score average at BIS in 2021: 37 points, world average score is 33). English is the language of instruction at both campuses, with 21 other languages offered. High-tech learning environments include Apple iPads and MacBooks as part of our standard technology suite.
The caring culture of BIS is defined by additional guidance for students at every turn: language and learning support, mentors, school counsellors, and university and career counsellors. Students are encouraged to develop themselves outside of the classroom as well, by taking part in one of 80 after school activities. These include drama, music, engineering, multimedia, athletics, as well as some signature programmes, such as the Model United Nations, the Duke of Edinburgh ́s International Award, and the Eco School project.
In 2021, BIS celebrated its 30th anniversary. The next chapter will include the funding and building of the new Creativity & Innovation Centre (CIC).

I hear really great stories from our kids how they experience these distance learning. Really big thumbs up how you and your team are handling this. The teachers are amazing. I think we are very fortunate to have our kids at the BIS!
Thank you to the BIS leadership team, teachers, staff and IT-specialists who provided our children with this distance learning programme. It not just ensures that the students continue with their learning perspectives, it indeed brings a bit of normality and structure into our homes. No-one I've been talking to outside of BIS has a school that is so well prepared for this crisis like BIS. Thank you!
We are truely impressed how smart and balanced the BIS Distance Learning program is working. The teachers make us believe they have done this many times bevor, really cool!
You can see that BIS is a truly international school - internationality, diversity and open-mindedness can be felt in every hallway, in every classroom. I also like the fact that children learn at a very early age to work together and help each other, and that the latest technology is sensibly integrated.
The BIS is a great school with an exciting spirit and a very positive attitude that helps to inspire children for a lifetime.
