Admissions Procedure

As an international school, we seek to attract a diverse student population from many different cultural backgrounds. We also look for students who bring different talents, interests and academic abilities to the school. BBS assumes that parents who select the school put a high priority on education and are willing to involve themselves in their child’s school experience.

At our bilingual school, a good command of German and English is a prerequisite for admission, as students must be able to follow a school program taught in both languages.
