THE SCHOOL

Great oaks from little acorns...

In 1979, Janet Galli, an entrepreneurial American, founded International School Basel (ISB) with 15 students. Her vision for the creation of a local international school was the beginning of ISB as we know it today.

ISB is a not-for-profit, co-educational day school. The School provides an international education to the highest recognized academic standards and is committed to promoting learning, cultural awareness and international understanding as well as developing respect and appreciation for people of all nationalities, religions and cultural backgrounds.

Since its inception, ISB has received welcomed support from the local Swiss community and the growing industries within the region. The School continues to expand as the local industries’ demand for international talent brings additional families from across the globe to the Basel region. The School benefits from - and at the same time provides - an invaluable service for the global community which calls Basel home.
