International School Basel

Fleischbachstrasse 2, Postfach 678, 4153 Reinach, Switzerland

Consisting of a junior school (preschool to grade 5), a middle school (grades 6-10) and a high school (grades 11-12), ISB moved to its six-acre, suburban campus in 2003. The curriculum, which follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programs, is designed to facilitate a smooth transition for the pupil to another international school or back to the student's native country. Junior school programming provides boys and girls with a thorough grounding in English, math, science and social studies. German courses commence in grade 1, French in grade 5. The middle school program culminates in a personal project completed by all students in grade 10. Courses in grades 11 and 12 lead toward either the IB Diploma or a general high school diploma. Students can arrange preparation for the SAT and for certain Advanced Placement exams. Most graduates attend college in either Europe or the US.
