School Summary
National, IB, curricula.

The International School of Berne is a non-profit, parent-owned day school accredited by ECIS and NEASC, serving diplomatic, academic and business families in the Berne area. It provides an English-language education for children of 36 nationalities.

The academic programme is international in nature. The school aims to foster an appreciation and understanding of diverse cultures and to promote open communication, open-mindedness, fairness, and respect for the particular backgrounds of its students. Curricula are designed to enable pupils below the 12th grade to transfer to other, similar international schools or to home-country schools. ESL, French, German, PE, art, drama, music and contacts with Swiss culture are part of the curriculum.

Preparation for external exams begins in Grade 8. The Secondary School division prepares students for university entry and assists those bound for other tertiary systems insofar as facilities permit. IB, IGCSE, PSAT and SAT examinations are offered. A full range of academic and non-academic courses is available (including skiing/skating, a yearly field week and Model United Nations). Additionally, a Learning Support Unit caters for children with learning disabilities and those with special gifts or talents.

The annual calendar extends from August until June on a three-term basis with major holidays at Christmas and Easter.

Physical facilities are located on a 1½-acre site five km from Berne. Four modern, well equipped buildings house two libraries, a gymnasium, two art rooms, science labs, a computer lab, and classrooms, complemented by a playground and a small sports field. The Early Learning Centre is located in a nearby chalet.

Admission is open to all children who are within the age range. Intermediate ability in English is required at upper levels.
