Welcome to Baku International School 

We are delighted you are a part of our school community. BIS offers a high quality education for 2-year-olds through secondary, with certified teachers from 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 while individualized to meet the needs of our diverse learners.  Our students are placed by ability in Language Arts and Mathematics classes to challenge and encourage continuous growth and success.  For our secondary students, we offer Advanced Placement classes and exams, SAT, two science labs, and a full-time counselor to help with the college application process.  Most of our graduates go on to top-tier universities across Europe and North America.

This success all starts with our Preschool 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 child and provides the resources, environment, and support needed for success.

Our student population is truly diverse and international, representing 36 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.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jason W. Craig
