English schools in Asia
Welcome to Bandung International School, our dynamic family school serving the multicultural community in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia.
Bandung International School is a private, independent, non-profit school governed by a foundation comprised of parents, faculty and administration. School policy is set by an elected Board of Directors, and operational decisions are made by the school administration.
BIS offers an international, site-based curriculum, a high school diploma, and Advanced Placement courses. The language of instruction is English. The programmes offer high academic standards and innovative teaching and learning methodologies.
BIS is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), and in the United States by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
Students from more than 25 countries attend BIS.
At BIS we are concerned with developing the concept of what it means to be "internationally educated" and integrating this into the life of our school. We strive to build on the common factors that bring our multicultural community together. We seek to engage our students in an education, which will help them to develop into knowledgeable, open-minded, well-balanced and reflective thinkers and inquirers, who are principled, caring, and prepared to take risks. We encourage them to be aware of their own creative, physical, social and emotional selves; and to communicate well, so that they will become effective local, national and world citizens.
We emphasise the process of learning while acquiring knowledge and skills. We educate to enhance understanding, tolerance and respect between different nations, cultures and societies. To this end, we draw on the rich cultural and linguistic diversity of the community we serve and of our host nation, Indonesia. We believe that such a learning environment will result in our students achieving their full potential. We believe it will equip them to make a successful transition to different educational environments, to cope with the demands of the world into which they will enter as young adults, and to embrace leadership rules as they occur.
Our team of outstanding professional staff is rich in experience of education in an international context, and seeks to offer students the best in instruction and support throughout their time with us.
