Welcome from the Director

Dear Students, Parents, and Friends of Baku International School,

Welcome to Baku International School. We are delighted you are a part of our school community. BIS offers a high quality education from 2 year old through secondary with teachers certified in the U.S. and Canada. We strive to have a warm and welcoming environment for each student, parent and community member that visits our school. Our educational program is rigorous and demanding, however supports are in place to help each child achieve his or her potential. For our secondary students, we offer Advanced Placement classes, AP testing, SAT examinations, and a full-time counselor to help with the college application process. Many of our graduates go on to top tier universities in North America and Europe.

This success all starts with our Pre-school and Elementary program. Our teachers offer a nurturing, yet structured program following the QSI curriculum. The professionals working with these children set goals and ensure students are receiving a quality education based upon each learner's needs. The work students are doing can be challenging and rigorous, but is age appropriate in response to the cognitive and social development of each child. Our teachers have high expectations for each student and provide the resources, environment and support needed for success.

Our student population is truly diverse and international, representing 33 different nationalities. We have an active Parent Support Group (PSG) where parents help to provide support to the classroom teachers and plan family activities throughout the year. BIS is also a part of the Silk Road Athletic Association (SRAA) and takes part in sporting events with other schools in Baku and Tbilisi. We also offer various after school activities, clubs, and organizations for all students.

We look forward to you visiting our school throughout the year. We are always willing to hear your suggestions and ideas, so feel free to share with me or any staff member. Together, we will make this a great learning experience for your children.
