Currently, 25 students from Belarus, Bulgaria, China, Germany, Iran, Mexico , Romania, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the Ukraine, and the USA have joined our boarding community.

All of the boarding school offerings including the living space, duties, projects, daily routines, and after school and weekend activities are conceived to further these goals and provide the students with a nurturing and safe environment.

Photos of BBIS Berlin Brandenburg International School GmbHBBIS is a fast growing international school that is committed to providing an inclusive after school programme for students of all ages. Our programme changes from term to term, with some activities continuing, whilst others stop and new ones begin. We aim to provide our students with a balanced and varied programme throughout the year. BBIS staff members and external instructors offer their time to the programme, enabling us to constantly expand and adapt to the growing needs of our student body.

Each term, a wide range of activities are offered and we strongly encourage our students to make use of that variety. This gives them the chance to have fun while meeting new friends, sharing and developing passions, integrating into our international community and meeting people from other cultures. The extracurricular activities take place in the afternoons, usually Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday or, in some cases, at lunchtime. Activities like sports, art, drama and music might have weekend activities as well.

About 50 ECAs are offered at BBIS each term (autumn, winter and spring), both sporting and non-sporting, including sailing, soccer, basketball, badminton, volleyball, karate, archery, swimming, Drama Club, Instrumental Ensemble, Human Rights Club, Student Council and Newspaper Club.
