Since its founding in 1996, ISB has grown to become one of the largest and most successful international schools in Bucharest. International School of Bucharest follows The National Curriculum for England and Wales, adapted to meet international best practices. We offer International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for Year 10 and Year 11 and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for Year 12 and Year 13.
Our curriculum offers students from age of 2 to 18 a broad-based, challenging and reflective education with an international perspective.
In the Sixth Form, all subjects are taught by specialist teachers, making use of an extensive range of facilities, science laboratories, computer rooms, 2 art studios, a theatre, a gym and rooms for music, all ensure that our students learn through experience. Technology complements learning, with classrooms equipped with projectors and interactive whiteboards and the iPad Programme running throughout the secondary school. The iPad Programme enables the school to develop blended learning within the classrooms, where teacher's input is fully supported by access to the latest resources to enhance the lessons.
We take pride in our students' achievements, and teachers are committed to helping each individual succeed. This is at the heart of our community.
In September 2017, International School of Bucharest switched from A Levels to IB Diploma Programme for our Sixth Form students. Our first cohort of IB students, numbering 59 in total, will take their examinations in May 2019. We are proud that we have been able to give our students the opportunity to select their subjects from a choice of 24 different options.
We think that the IB Diploma programme combines academic rigour with critical thinking skills and personal growth to produce a programme which truly prepares students for university study and professional life after school.
As a member of the Eco-Schools project, a Duke of Edinburgh's Award Centre and a supporter of the Outward Bound organisation, we feel that the IB is the ideal academic programme to complement, perfectly, our wider curriculum aims. The school's core values are Learn; Respect; Succeed. We sincerely hope that our broad, balanced and challenging programmes will help our students to realise that, in the words of Kurt Hahn "there is more in you than you think."
