Thank you for your interest in Bandung Independent School.

BIS has been serving the educational needs of the international community in West Java since 1972 and after 47 years continues to be the leading international school in Bandung, evolving with a changing society to provide our students the skills for success today and tomorrow.

Our mission is that through relevant, challenging, and engaging programs, we inspire every learner to become skillful and courageous to participate responsibly, successfully, and with integrity in a global community.

Fulfilling this mission begins with a challenging program. At BIS, we are extremely proud of our rigorous academic standards, adopted from curricula around the world. We are one of the only schools in the region to offer the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Programmes, which build 21st century skills and understandings, while embracing diversity, service, and self-directed learning. Our Diploma Programme (DP) graduates perform year after year above world averages. We also have an extensive extracurricular program which includes soccer, archery, swimming, robotics, programming, and student clubs, just to name a few.

We are also extremely proud to be the most internationally diverse school in Bandung. BIS faculty and students hail from more than 24 countries and just as many language backgrounds, promoting an environment of open-mindedness, respect, and intercultural understanding. We encourage close collaboration between students, parents and teachers and believe that this partnership leads to greater achievement.

We encourage you to visit our campus. From stepping through our doors, I’m sure you’ll be able to see the inclusive, creative, caring environment that BIS offers.

We look forward to hearing from you.
