What makes our school so special?
Did you know that more than 90 percent of our students each year are accepted to some of the best universities in the world? That we’re the only school in DC to partner with global education leaders like Juilliard, MIT, and UNICEF? We are proud of our school’s continued drive for excellence, and it is our mission to inspire our students to be ambitious and to become pioneering leaders in the world.
With the support of our superb and innovative teachers, and with unique opportunities like our Build-A-Plane club – the only aeronautical engineering and design program for students in DC – the world is wide open for our students.
At BISW, your students will have access to the world. We build global connections through our combination of international curricula, international teachers, and international students.
Our results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma are among the best in the world.
