The ISB Admissions process – swift, informative and attentive
Welcome and thank you for considering the International School of the Basel Region (ISB). At ISB we recognise that choice of school is one of the most important aspects of an international move and we endeavour to provide timely confirmation of the application outcome.
As an international school, ISB is used to accommodating the diverse needs of a mobile community of families, but also those of Swiss nationals and longer-term residents. There is no deadline for applications, and most students are able to join ISB at any point in the academic year contingent on space being available and students meeting the entry requirements. Parents are welcome to contact ISB throughout the year to discover whether places are available and are advised to initiate the formal admission process at the earliest opportunity by contacting the Admissions and Marketing Officer.
ISB is an inclusive, non-selective school. Students are not normally expected to sit an entrance examination. Academic achievement is important at ISB and we work with every student to help them achieve their maximum potential.
As soon as the admissions process is completed and a place has been offered, a mutually agreeable start date will be determined. Depending on the class of entry, it may be preferred that students enter the School at the start of a semester or the start of an academic year.
ISB’s Admissions and Marketing Officer, Mr. Aaron Schmidtberger, and his assistant, Mrs. Sharon Kay, will be your main points of contact throughout the admission process and will be happy to discuss any questions you may have along the way.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
