Welcome to BIS

BIS is the only international school in Germany with all four IB programmes

Class of 2022 with strong graduation scores: 36 points average and 99% passing rate

Bavarian International School (BIS) in Munich and Haimhausen once again confirmed its position as one of the leading international schools in Germany. With an average score of 36 points in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP), the 78 students from 23 different nations performed very well (equivalent to 2.0 in the German Abitur system, Bavarian average score in 2022: 2.15) - with a 99% passing rate. All ten students of the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IB CP) successfully completed their exams as well.

BIS is the only international school in Germany to offer all four International Baccalaureate Organization programmes (PYP, MYP, DP, CP). The private, non-profit, all-day school with two campuses in Haimhausen and Munich-Schwabing serves children and adolescents from kindergarten starting at age three (Early Childhood) through graduation in Grade 12. In the upcoming 2022-23 school year, BIS expects a record of more than 1,200 students from over 60 nations.

In the graduating Class of 2022, 18 students scored more than 40 points (out of a maximum of 45), which is equivalent to an average grade of 1.3 in the German Abitur system - two of them even scored 44 points. 43 of the 78 BIS students achieved bilingual IB Diplomas.

"This cohort is a very special one, because it experienced the entire two final years in grades 11 and 12 completely in times of the Corona pandemic - and in addition several months of the Russian war against Ukraine. 40 displaced students were integrated at BIS during this time. The Class of 2022 has shown particular perseverance, resilience, flexibility, and creativity, and has experienced innovative new ways of teaching and learning. These are strengths that each individual will take with them on their individual journeys," said Dr. Chrissie Sorenson, Head of School and Executive Board of BIS. She expressed her gratitude and congratulations not only to the students, but especially to the teaching team and administrative staff for their first-class work in difficult times. Together, they have done a wonderful job of continuing to bring the BIS motto to life: Believe. Inspire. Succeed.

Ticket to the best universities

With the IB degrees (DP & CP), students can study at the best universities around the world as well as in Germany. As is the case almost every year, the paths taken by BIS students are extraordinarily diverse, as exemplary fields of study show: Aerospace Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Neuroscience, Global Law, Economics, Online culture, Art & Media, Psychology, Film Directing, Architecture, Chemistry and Game Art & 3D Animation. Still other students choose a gap year or internships for example, at a social project in Tanzania, at an Animal Rescue Center or at VOGUE magazine in London.

The students' paths are as diverse as the Bavarian International School...
