"ISBerne: Your Trusted Private Kindergarten in Bern for Quality Education" The International School of Berne (ISBerne) stands as a prestigious and fully accredited International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School, delivering top-tier education to students aged 3 to 18 in the heart of Switzerland's capital. With over six decades of history, our private day school has become renowned for its cutting-edge educators, world-class facilities, diverse community, and a track record of academic excellence.
From our Early Learning programs to the Grade 10 Bridging Year, ISBerne offers exceptional academics, providing your child with the tools for a bright future. We take pride in being a non-selective school, nurturing well-rounded, high-achieving students who are prepared to thrive in the global landscape. Our institution is a testament to the belief that an education from ISBerne is an investment in your child's future.
At ISBerne, we embrace diversity and celebrate internationalism. Our students come from over 40 different nationalities, creating a dynamic learning environment filled with numerous opportunities for growth and intercultural understanding.
One of our cherished traditions is the 'Ski and Skate Fridays' program, which has been a staple at ISBerne for over thirty years. During the winter season, students in all grades take part in skiing, snowboarding, or ice skating, fostering a sense of camaraderie and fun while staying active.
We encourage our students to be responsible, empathetic, and engaged members of society. Recently, our students proudly participated in Bern's Climate Change demonstration, marching alongside their families and friends. Their experience exemplifies our commitment to nurturing young global citizens who care deeply about the world around them.
At ISBerne, we've developed a mission and values that guide our educational approach. Our mission centers around welcoming, connecting, nurturing, inspiring, challenging, and preparing students to become global citizens of tomorrow. Our learning principles emphasize the importance of defining learning, understanding learning principles, safeguarding our community, and ensuring intercultural understanding.
Our academic programs cater to a broad range of ages, from Early Learning through Primary, Middle, and High School. We also offer a Grade 10 Bridging Year, designed for teenagers who have completed their mandatory education in the Swiss system.
Our school campus, which opened in 2017, is a purpose-built facility that reflects our commitment to creating a community that fosters common learning and shared values. Our facilities include a double gymnasium, an adjacent soccer pitch, and ample outdoor spaces. We encourage you to visit us and experience our campus in person to see the learning environment we've meticulously designed.
The International School of Berne has a rich history dating back to 1961. It was established to serve the international community in Bern and has been a cornerstone for English-speaking education for over six decades. From humble beginnings in a rented house on Thunstrasse 97, ISBerne has transformed and expanded. We acquired land in Gümligen in 1965, where we built a new dedicated campus. In 2017, we moved to our current state-of-the-art campus at Allmendingenweg 9, 3073 Gümligen, just two tram stops away from our original location.
Our dedication to providing excellent international education led to our recognition as an International Baccalaureate World School. In 1995, we introduced the IB Diploma programme, and we've worked tirelessly to offer all three IB programs. ISBerne received authorization to provide the IB Primary Years Programme in January 2007 and the IB Middle Years Programme in April 2007.
We're proud to be accredited by leading educational bodies, including the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Our re-accreditation in 1994, 2004, and 2015 further attests to our commitment to educational excellence.
ISBerne primarily serves a transient expatriate clientele, comprised of diplomatic and international professional families with an average residency in Switzerland of 3.5 years. Our school serves as the best private kindergarten in Bern, a second home for students, parents, faculty, and staff during their stay in Switzerland, creating lasting memories and a sense of belonging. Choose ISBerne for a world-class education that prepares your child for a bright and promising future.
