Since its founding in 1996, ISB has grown to become one of the largest and most successful international schools in Bucharest. The curriculum offers students from age of 2 to 18 a demanding and reflective education with an international perspective.

Our Mission is to provide each student with a broad, balanced education in a safe and supportive environment. We promote an enjoyment of learning, creativity, and excellence, whilst working in close harmony with our diverse community. We enable students to reach their full potential and develop skills to become independent, respectful, and caring adults who will be successful and contribute to global society.

In Primary and Lower Secondary, ISB follows the National Curriculum for England and Wales adapted to meet international best practices. We offer the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in Key Stage 4 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in the Sixth Form.

As part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, we offer a variety of courses, all taught by specialist teachers, making use of an extensive range of facilities and up-to-date educational technology.

In the May 2022 session, despite all the obstacles of an unprecedented era, our students have enjoyed continuous success in the IB exams since ISB introduced the IBDP in 2017. Resilience and dedication to learning have paid off; of our 40 diploma candidates, 7 enjoyed outstanding success and earned 40 or more points out of 45. ISB is proud to introduce the world’s top scorer Tudor Durnescu., who did an exceptional job in the International Baccalaureate May 2022 Examination Session, scoring maximum points (45/45).

Our Sixth Form has a significant rate of acceptance from the top universities in the UK- Russell Group, the USA and the Netherlands.
