Life @ ISBerne
It is the teachers at ISBerne that make the school. They are fantastic.
From the bottom of my heart; thank you. Our stay in Switzerland has been fantastic thanks to ISBerne!
What was once just a dream is now a reality. ISBerne moved into the new campus over the Spring break in April 2017. This new campus has been many years in the works, and we are all very excited to finally see the project finally come to fruition!
