Warm, fun and familial: that is how IBIS and its atmosphere are best described. The brainchild of the British Embassy in the 1960s, the school still follows the national curriculum of the UK but is also an excellent choice for local students who want to focus on an English-language education and become citizens of the world.  Back in 1963 when Bonn was the capital of Western Germany, a group of parents from the British Embassy founded the then British Embassy Preparatory School, which is now known as the Independent Bonn International School, or IBIS for short. Today it is the oldest and longest established international school of the former capital.
