Bandung Independent School (BIS), originally named Bandung International School, was established in 1972 as a non-profit foundation to support the expatriate community of the city.
Operating first as an elementary school, the foundation eventually opened early childhood, middle school, and high school. BIS is an IB (International Baccalaureate) World School, offering the Diploma Programme since 2007 and the Primary Years Programme since 2004 and in the process of becoming authorized to be dignified as IB Middle Years Programme School. BIS is also accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
As an IB World School, BIS aims to develop the student holistically, and that its students develop conceptual understandings of several knowledge areas through an engaging but challenging curriculum. Subjects are not taught in complete isolation, as the faculty encourages their students to find meaningful connections between subjects to solve complex real-world problems. Along the way, they develop skills and attributes that help them collaborate, self-manage, inquire, and reflect.
