As an inclusive international school, Bali Island School aims to serve the whole family’s education needs. We feel strongly that each student be met at his/her level of understanding in order to achieve his/her utmost potential. We accept children with a broad range of learning needs who are supported through our Student Support Services. We value a whole-family commitment where all siblings apply to the same school in order to support the model of inclusive education. Some of our students benefit from English as an Additional Language assistance (EAL) or Learning Support (LS) which may require the development of an Individualised Learning Plan (ILP). BIS does not charge for this service. BIS is committed to providing a World-Class Education to each of our students.
