A Holistic Way of Learning
International School Basel is the only school in Basel to offer an International Baccalaureate (IB) education in English for 3 - 19 year olds. The IB Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes provide a coherent educational experience that meets the needs and developmental stages of all our students.
Collaboration between students, parents and the school gives each student the best possible environment to reach their potential. By working together to create a safe and positive learning environment for each child, parents are able to extend school learning beyond the classroom, while faculty help students find a place for their life experiences in school.
Aligned with our Mission, this collaboration ensures that our students are constantly learning while having fun in a supportive and helpful community.

Grade 12 Parent (Ireland)
Great educational methodology and a really broad scope, making the best of a real International School. We have enjoyed fantastic facilities. The best for me is how they handle new comers not only professionally but with warm care. Kids feel so welcome and are so happy in this school that they would stay here forever. Activities like the top of the top Ski Camp will never be forgotten, or the International Festival, it is really extraordinary. My son has developed tremendously but most importantly, he has been a happy kid everyday going to school.

ISB offers a solid academic program, and teachers are always available for one to one approach to students when needed. It supports students when they have difficulties and challenges them when they need more stimulation.
Grade 11 Parent (Italy)
The teachers were caring and the curriculum was strong. I felt that my children were challenged, but not to the point of stress. The evaluations were the most comprehensive I have ever seen and the teachers were always open and inviting.
