International School Basel
The International School of Basel is an English-language international day school for students from ages 3 to 18.
The International School Basel (ISB) is home to approximately 1,420 students who enjoy modern purpose-built facilities on three campuses clustered a few kilometres south of Basel in the towns of Reinach and Aesch.
The International School Basel is committed to promoting learning and respect for people of all nationalities, religions and cultures. It is our mission to create a welcoming environment for students and families from across the globe and to provide those students with an international education held to the highest academic standard. We are delighted to watch these students grow and mature in an environment of praise and encouragement as we prepare them for moving on to universities or to other educational systems around the world and for their lives beyond.
It is our hope that through foreign language classes, sports teams, drama and the arts, International School Basel students develop as well-rounded, multi-lingual individuals who become fond alumni in the years to come. Whilst our language of instruction is English, students in every grade study German as well. Students at many grade levels may also have the option to study French or Spanish. ISB fielded 49 sport teams through three seasons of play last year and over eighty percent of our students participate in music lessons, performance groups and/or drama each year. In addition, we have an active, diverse, and vibrant parent community and the support of many wonderful parent organizations at International School Basel.
International School Basel students are guided by a team of dedicated and well-qualified staff and administrators who inspire students to achieve their individual learning potential in the following ways:
- by enabling students to develop active, enquiring minds and effective life-long learning skills,
- by supporting a learning atmosphere grounded in mutual trust, dignity and respect,
- by facilitating an educational partnership between students, teachers and parents, and
- by promoting education beyond the purely academic by creating opportunities for students to develop emotionally, physically, creatively and socially.
International School Basel is an International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) for our younger students, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students aged 11 to 16, and the Diploma Programme (DP) for our senior students in the final two years of their school careers. International School Basel is accredited by both the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
