ISBerne has been serving the expat community in Switzerland for over five decades…

A Warm Welcome to the International School of Berne

The International School of Berne (ISBerne) provides a high quality academic programme which encourages students to be reflective and involved in the learning process. This starts in the Early Learning Centre and progresses through to Grade 12.

Our dedication to excellence in international education has been part of the school drive to develop as an International Baccalaureate World School. The school’s IB Diploma programme was established in 1995; we were authorised to offer the IB Primary Years Programme in January 2007 and the IB Middle Years Programme in April 2007. We are one of only 200 IB schools worldwide authorised to offer all three IB programmes.

ISBerne continues to offer, in addition to the IB, an accredited US High School Diploma.  Additionally, since 2012, ISBerne offers ISBerne Online, a new online school powered by K12 Inc.’s outstanding curriculum, which opens ISBerne to students around the world. Through all programmes, ISBerne graduates are well-prepared for the future and have also developed an understanding of cultural diversity and the ability to work with others.

With over 300 students from 40 nations and staff from 12 nations, perfectly situated in a neutral country, we are truly an international community. Please explore our website and find what we offer in our unique setting in the heart of Switzerland.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the school, or better still come and visit us. Our staff will be pleased to give you a tour and to answer your questions.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon at ISBerne.
