Welcome to the Bavarian International School website!
We hope that as you browse our site you will find the information you are looking for and also that you have an impression of what makes BIS such a special school.
Our Haimhausen campus is situated in a beautiful park-like setting with fields and woods surrounding the school premises. The focal point of this campus is the Haimhausen Schloss, a centuries old castle, which creates a very unique learning environment. Our BIS city campus offers primary students a central Munich location and access to all the cultural offerings the city has to offer, as well as the continued educational excellence BIS is renown for.
Our “Community of Learners” is committed to enthusiastically working together to ensure a community of educational excellence. We are fortunate in having a team of outstanding teachers from many cultural backgrounds united in our goal of making BIS a place where students receive the best possible education we can give them. We are a school where the creation of a strong professional culture is a priority. Good pedagogy matters to us, supported by appropriate professional development and a sharing of good practice.
We set ourselves high standards as faculty and staff, and expect the same from our students. We also understand that, while academic rigour is important, a child also needs a broad and balanced education in a secure and caring environment. Through co-curricular and community service opportunities, we are always looking to enrich the experience of our students, understanding our responsibility to prepare them to be effective citizens in tomorrow’s world.
