The Bavarian International School e.V. (BIS) was established in 1990 to offer a full-day education in English to children from the international community in the north of Munich. We opened in February 1991 with 6 students and now celebrate more than 25 years of inspiring and challenging young minds! In those years we have grown to a two-campus school with a steadily increasing enrolment of 1,150 students, representing approximately 52 nations. We are an IB World School, authorised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (ibo.org) to teach the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), and the Career-related Programme (CP).
BIS is approved by the government of Bavaria and fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), and the Council of International Schools (CIS). BIS is also a member of the Education Collaborative for International Schools (ECIS), the Association of German International Schools (AGIS), the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Internationale Schulen in Bayern (AISB), the Association for the Advancement of International Education (AAIE) and the National Association for College Admissions Counselling (NACAC). We subscribe to the NACAC’s Statement of Principals of Good Practice.
One of the things that parents and staff value most about BIS is its friendly family-oriented school feeling and strong sense of community. For many expats, the school's families and programmes become a focal point of their life in Munich.
