ISB is an extraordinary school, made so by a tradition of educational excellence spanning 40 years. Establishing, nurturing, and growing such an exceptional learning community has been and remains intentional; we work hard to build strong relationships so that our learning is at its best.
The Admissions Department at ISB is here to support international families, whether they are moving to China for the first time or are seasoned Beijing residents. With a tradition of educational excellence since 1980, ISB is open to families from all national systems and education backgrounds, and we are a learning institution that can serve students with diverse abilities and needs from Early Years (EY) 3 to Grade 12.
Across the school, we are constantly mindful of our aspirational Mission and Vision. A defining characteristic is our commitment to great teaching influenced by the latest research, and the flexibility to choose our learning standards from different educational systems around the world.
ISB values social-emotional learning, which gives priority to learners’ health and strength of character along with their academic performance. We focus on students’ overall well-being and want them to have a keen sense of responsibility for themselves and their community. Whether our students will be returning to their home system after ISB or pursuing their passions elsewhere in the world, our programs equip them to be productive, healthy, and fulfilled young people.
You have our invitation to visit ISB, to see how we are a school of opportunity with unmatched resources – both in terms of our faculty, our most important resource, and our facilities. These are made possible by the fact that we are non-profit; all our revenue goes back into making the school better.
We recognize that people come to ISB from various cultures and educational systems. The Admissions Department is ready to advise you on what sets ISB apart and how students and their families can flourish here.
We look forward to welcoming you!
