Welcoming, Nurturing and Inspiring
The International School of Berne (ISBerne) is a fully accredited, International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School providing education for students aged 3 to 18 in Switzerland’s capital. Since 1961, our private, day school has had a long-standing reputation for innovative and highly qualified teachers, world-class facilities, a diverse community, and excellent academic results.
We are a non-selective school with well-rounded and high-achieving students. An education from ISBerne is a proven investment in your child's future.
Our preschool programme fosters in each child a love of learning and sense of self through a play-based curriculum.
From Kindergarten to Grade 5, our programme offers unique learning experiences to acquire knowledge, build skills and develop character.
During this time of rapid intellectual and personal change, our students strengthen their independent learning skills and pursue their interests.
We offer multiple academic pathways to meet the wide range of High School students' needs, talents, interests, and goals.
Teenagers who have completed obligatory schooling in the Swiss educational system can join ISBerne for a Bridging Year.
