Dear parents and guests,
Welcome to Bucharest-Beirut International School. We hope you will enjoy exploring our school website and you will find the information useful.
Bucharest-Beirut International School was founded in 2003 and accredited by the Lebanese and Romanian Ministries of Education.
Since 2017, we are an International Baccalaureate World School offering Diploma Programme for students aged 16 to 19. Bucharest Beirut International School is also Candidate School* for the Primary Years Programme (PYP). This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School for the Primary Years Programme (PYP). These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Bucharest Beirut International School believes is important for our students.
*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org.
At Bucharest-Beirut International School you will meet an international student community, where we promote multicultural understanding. We are committed to providing a balanced educational programme that encourages our students to become principled, open-minded global citizens.
Our language of instruction is English, and we support our students’ mother-tongue by offering classes of Arabic, Turkish and Chinese. Being the host country language, Romanian is studied by all our students.
Head of school
BBIS is deeply dedicated to developing students’ capabilities, to help them discover, reveal and improve their skills and to open up.
To this purpose we continuously update our curricular and extra-curricular activities and as behaviour, learning and discipline are strongly linked to each other we established a code of behavior to which students and staff should tailor equally.
Without strong discipline, learning will show poor results mirroring a low level of competencies, responsibilities and lack of effective participation in a continuously changing world. As the educational system is a triangle including students, teachers and parents, we deeply hope that each side will do its best for building competitive personalities, aware of themselves and of the world around.
We are all looking towards the same direction: the future of our children on whose shoulders lies the responsibility of our world’s future.
Our vision and mission
We are all aware of the fact that we are small parts of a huge system and as all parts in a system are different but work together, we think that our school is distinctive but at the same time complies with the general lines of the times we are passing through.
Our goal is to prepare the students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity , a lasting passion for learning, helping them understand their future mission , accept challenges and turn them into fruitful results, become aware of the fact that we are all fully responsible to ourselves and to the others all our lives.
We manage to offer a wide range of possibilities to help them choose the best path towards future. Our students should understand that to learn means to figure out that information from all fields of knowledge is necessary and complementary, that irrespective of the career they choose, they must be prepared to be well-grounded private and public persons.
As our teachers are highly-qualified we expect our students to feel the pulse of being part of the team and to keep up with them.
As an educational system is basically a triangle school-student-family, we are waiting for a constant support from parents.
Our Educational Programme
BBIS educational programme offers the international community in Bucharest and the Romanian students equally the possibility to match the international education requests by the curriculum and extra-curricular activities in English.
Thus, our students are educated in the spirit of international mindedness leaving apart differences of race, culture, religion, etc. , learning how to learn how to turn their minds and souls into sound instruments that will help them develop and turn into reliable private and social personalities.
Our school was founded in 2003(authorized by the Romanian and Lebanese Ministry of Education) and has around 400 students aged 3 to 18, from prekindergarten to grade 12.
We have the pleasure to inform you that starting with the academic year 2016-2017 our school is authorized to offer the Diploma Programme.
