Important information regarding school year 2023/2024

Enrollment priorities

The Bavarian International School (BIS) was founded first and foremost as an international school serving a globally mobile community of families. These expats (specialists, executives, managers) enrich the Munich region and, through our offer as an IB World School, their non-German-speaking children can seamlessly integrate into a comparable school system.

We ask for your understanding that we have to put applying students on the waiting list if there are no more free spaces available. Furthermore, we cannot make binding statements with regards to timeframes, as changes can occur due to the enrollment priorities listed below.

Children of expat families will be given top priority for enrolment as they have few other options in the area. Next, siblings of existing BIS families will be considered.  After this, we will consider local German families who - unlike expats - always have a viable local alternative (i.e. German state school or German private school).

Many ways to experience our school

We provide a variety of ways for you to get to know our school, including in-person and virtual options.

Digital learning and technology is a priority at BIS, and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted even further into the future of living digitally. Our on-demand Virtual Visit allows you to see and hear about our school from the people who work, learn, and visit here, every day. Join an in-person or virtual Open Day event, or flip through our Learning Spaces page to see where your child could be going to school. A phone call or personal tour with our Admissions Team means all your questions can be answered immediately.
