Welcome to Bali Island School

Welcome to the Bali Island School website! We serve the expat and local community who seek an outstanding educational experience for their children with a focus on International Mindedness. Bali Island School (BIS) is an IB World School, offering all three of the International Baccalaureate’s programs, and has been in existence for over 35 years.

We have an amazing community made up of passionate educators, eager students and engaged parents. While that sort of commitment is hard to communicate via a website, we hope you get a sense for how rich our community is through the photos you see. Please also explore our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram feeds.

As an IB World School, we hold all community members accountable to the values this program adheres to. We are reflective thinkers, principled,knowledgeable but also open minded and we readily inquire. We take risks knowing that we learn through failure. We strive to live balanced lives

Our Community Say

My favourite part of the school experience at BIS was the fact that it was a small community, everyone knew each other and you build greater relationships with your teachers. I did not get a chance of this in my previous school. And of course the sports!

Airlangga Class 2019

The Communication Among Teachers, Students And Parents Runs Smoothly BIS lives a great school community approach with a nice interaction among management, teachers, student and parents. BIS provides a ‘safe’ learning environment ; in particular as being a small school, students across all grades know each other and interact and respect each other nicely. BIS has a straight forward communication approach ; again being a small school, the communication among teachers, students and parents runs smoothly. BIS encourages kids to be engaged in various performances (music, drama, sports etc.). BIS encourages kids to get involved in community outreach activities

I Would Definitely Recommend BIS I believe that on of, if not the most important thing a school can offer is it's teachers. That being said, I would definitely recommend BIS. The IB does not have its notorious reputation of being difficult for no reason, and having great teachers really makes a difference. The teachers here do not just teach you content, they do so in engaging ways. They make you laugh during hard times, they make the effort to help, even if it means sacrificing their time off, and above all they motivate you to do the best that you can.

It’s Warm, Welcoming And Has A Great Community Feeling BIS is unique in so many ways. We have experienced many International Schools but BIS is by far the best school Leah & Mariye have attended. The moment you arrive on campus you can feel the atmosphere and the aura of the school. It’s warm, welcoming and has a great community feeling about it. Because of its size – everybody knows everybody and you feel like being part of a big family. The faculty is well selected and amazing and passionate about their work. The campus offers an environment which offers the students all facilities needed. All in all – for us BIS is the best choice we could have made for Leah & Mariye.

“The positive energy and support that my teachers and peers have given me during my BIS journey have helped me grow into the wiser person that I am today. The IISSAC (Indonesian International Small School Activity Conference) team, traveling to other places in Indonesia with my peers to compete with other international schools, helped me gain more experience - all while making new friendships along the way. That will be my fondest memory.”

Lani Class of 2021

Class of 2021 Lani “The BIS family-like community made me more confident and realize risk-taking is a part of learning. The Diploma Program and CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) especially exposed me to understanding more about the way I perceive the world, especially in seeing the reality of inequality and poverty issues. My education should make me become someone that can help others in need, so they too can help make the world a better place.”

Malikha Class of 2021


Another strong set of results – well earned – through a difficult period. Thank you to our IBDP Coordinator and Secondary Principal for their strong leadership, to each DP teacher for your attention to individual student needs and your strong approach to teaching and learning, and finally to the rest of the BIS faculty and staff for your assistance in preparing our students for the demands of the DP program!

EOTC and Community Engagement

BIS’ core values are integral to the notion of helping individuals and groups to become responsible members of local, national and global communities.
Indeed, the aim of all IB Programmes is to develop internationally-minded people who can help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. 

After School Activities

After school activities provide the opportunity for students to try out new things, meet friends of other grade levels and follow their interests.

Participating strengthens their self-esteem and  engages them with the larger school community. We offer activities Monday to Friday from 3pm-4pm.
