Changemakers for a new tomorrow

Bavarian International School (BIS) in Munich and HaimhausenBavarian-International-School-ib-diploma-graduationThe Bavarian International School (BIS) is more than just a school. It is the place where students from three to 19 years of age are prepared for the new world of tomorrow. This is where young personalities, global citizens and changemakers develop. For many students, BIS is a home away from home and a family network for life.Children at the Bavarian International SchoolAcross both BIS campuses, in Munich-Schwabing and Haimhausen, education for around 1,250 students from more than 60 nations takes place under the philosophy "Believe. Inspire. Succeed." Approximately 180 teachers from all over the world act as mentors, inspiring students and imparting values and future skills along with academic knowledge. BIS teachers use a highly individualised approach, taking into account the strengths and weaknesses of each global citizen under their care. "At BIS, we tailor our students' preparation for the new world of tomorrow, where 85% of future jobs are not even known today," says Dr. Chrissie Sorenson, Head of School and Executive Board of Bavarian International School. In the globalised world, students require outstanding language and communication skills, an intercultural mindset, digital-technological excellence, analytical and critical thinking, teamwork and an innovative spirit.Bavarian-International-School-students-in-science-labBIS offers unique learning conditions with state-of-the-art technological equipment and holistic education far beyond the curriculum. Around 80 "After School Activities" per week are complemented by special programmes such as European Environmental School, Model United Nations or The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award.
