Please read the guidelines about communications you can expect from International School Basel (ISB) in regards to fees and invoices.

Annual Tuition Fees 2019-20

The Board of Directors has approved a 2% increase in tuition fees across all sections for the academic year 2019-20 with the exception of the Intensive Needs Program.

The fee increase will ensure that operational costs as well as the investments necessary to maintain and further develop the academic quality of the School remain adequately funded. At the same time, this fee increase still keeps ISB at a very competitive level of tuition commensurate with fees charged by comparable international schools in Switzerland and abroad.

Payment is required prior to the first day of School.

Primary Years Programme EC 3 - Grade 5CHF 25,040

Tuition costs paid by the Canton Baselland to ISB

Please note that a vote in September 2017 decided that no subsidy will be made for private school students by the Canton Baselland as of 2017/18 school year onwards unless they fall under the category “Hardship Cases”. However, private school students who received the subsidy in the school year 2016-17 will continue to receive contributions during a transitional period of two years, for 2017/18 and 2018/19.
