Welcome to the Bali Island School website! We serve the expat and local community who seek an outstanding educational experience for their children with a focus on International Mindedness. Bali Island School (BIS) is an IB World School, offering all three of the International Baccalaureate’s programs, and has been in existence for over 35 years.
We have an amazing community made up of passionate educators, eager students and engaged parents. While that sort of commitment is hard to communicate via a website, we hope you get a sense for how rich our community is through the photos you see. Please also explore our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram feeds.
As an IB World School, we hold all community members accountable to the values this program adheres to. We are reflective thinkers, principled,knowledgeable but also open minded and we readily inquire. We take risks knowing that we learn through failure. We strive to live balanced lives.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them.
The Middle Years Programme (MYP) has been designed as a coherent and comprehensive curriculum framework that provides academic challenge and develops the life skills of students from the ages of 11 to 16.
The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced Programme of education with final examinations that prepares students from the ages 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond.
Another strong set of results – well earned – through a difficult period. Thank you to our IBDP Coordinator and Secondary Principal for their strong leadership, to each DP teacher for your attention to individual student needs and your strong approach to teaching and learning, and finally to the rest of the BIS faculty and staff for your assistance in preparing our students for the demands of the DP program!
