Serving our expatriate families as well as the local Swiss community...
The ISBerne community is vast; from its immediate expatriate community to the local Swiss community, consisting of the Gemeinde of Muri-Gümligen and the canton of Bern, ISBerne serves as a centre for all groups.
In addition to our strong Parent community, ISBerne reaches out to the local area offering mother tongue language courses, after-school English classes, Kickstart English summer day camp and facility use to local organisations.
After School English Programme
For children enrolled in local Swiss school up to grade 6 / 8H. This course is held on Wednesday afternoons when local school children have an afternoon off from school. Emphasising reading and writing, these classes cater to students who already have a base level of spoken English. Read more

The true multi-cultural community of ISBerne is a huge strength of the school. Students learn to debate each other and learn new points of view respectfully. A globally-minded child is very valuable.
My children truly enjoy learning about their classmates’ cultures and experiences. I hope they continue to be open-minded and tolerant when we return to the US.
ISBerne is vibrant, multi-cultural and open.
From the bottom of my heart; thank you. Our stay in Switzerland has been fantastic thanks to ISBerne!
The school gives a warm welcome to international children, focusing on social development and open-minded education.
My son loves learning about the countries and cultures of his classmates; this is priceless.
ISBerne is truly international and yet homey.
I love the community feel at ISBerne.
