Description

The International School of Belgrade (ISB) is an independent, coeducational day school which offers an educational program from pre-school (age 3) through grade 12 for students of all nationalities. The school year comprises 2 semesters extending from August 21 through December 15 and from January 8 through June 14. ISB has been providing a quality education to the international community in Belgrade since 1948. ISB students represent diverse cultural and national backgrounds, and share a commitment and passion to learning. Our challenging and diverse programs offer a quality international education with a global perspective. ISB relies on innovative and best instructional practice to ensure we address the varying learning styles of our students. Our students regularly gain entrance into competitive universities worldwide or successfully transition to other elementary or secondary schools along their educational paths. The curriculum is similar to that of US general academic, high-quality public schools. In addition, ISB is an IBO World School, authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (for Pre-K to grade 5), Middle Years Programme (for grades 6-10), and the Diploma Programme (for grades 11 and 12). ISB is a college preparatory school which offers a rich curriculum designed to stimulate the minds of children of all ages and also serves students with mild learning disabilities. For a complete view of the School curriculum, please check the school website. The School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and by the Council of International Schools. The lower school and upper school campuses are in close proximity of one another and consist of a combination of new, purpose-built facilities and remodeled villas with adjacent buildings. The campuses are located in a quiet, residential area of Belgrade. Each campus has a library with a total of 16,130 volumes. As of SY 2016/2017 ISB Upper School has moved away from the one-to-one laptop scheme to a more flexible Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) program. The main idea is to move further into the digital learning age by facilitating the safe and productive use of electronic devices through the empowerment of students taking a more active ownership of their own learning with their own owned laptops. The lower school students have available laptop carts with a ratio 2 students per 1 laptop. In addition to the BYOL program, the total number of instructional computers is around 100. There are purpose built science laboratories at the middle school and high school, as well as a new gymnasium and two tennis courts. ISB offers a hot lunch five days per week plus limited bus transportation. The School is governed by members elected by the ISB Association as well as members appointed by the United States Ambassador. The Board of Trustees consists of no less than seven voting members and no more than ten. Three members are appointed by the US Ambassador, one of whom is the Treasurer. A minimum of two and a maximum of five members are elected from the membership. Elections are managed in an effort to reach the maximum of five elected members. The Board may choose to appoint up to two additional members. At least one member of the Board, either elected or appointed, must be a Serbian citizen. The Board of Trustees appoints the Director. Membership in the Association is automatically conferred upon the parents or guardians of children enrolled in the School. The School is incorporated and has US tax-exempt status. ISB is a collaborative learning community that inspires, equips and empowers its students to succeed and contribute positively to society.
