Welcome to the International School of Berne! We are a fully accredited, International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School providing education for students aged 3 to 18 in Switzerland’s capital. Since 1961, our school has had a long-standing reputation for innovative and highly qualified teachers, world-class facilities, a diverse community, and excellent academic results.

As the only school in the Berne region and one of a few in Switzerland to offer the entire IB continuum, our curriculum gives students a coherence of programs and a sustainable learning experience whether your child continues to study at our school or elsewhere.

Along with flexible diploma options and highly experienced English as an additional language support team, our school offers children the necessary resources and tools to realise their full potential and reach their future goals.

It is the teachers at ISBerne that make the school. They are fantastic.
