Beijing BISS International School was founded in 1994 by its sister school, ISS International School in Singapore, as an independent proprietary, co-educational, English-language day school offering an international curriculum for Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 12 students from the expatriate community of Beijing. The 11,000 square meter campus is conveniently located near major expatriate residential areas in central Beijing, located just of the North of Third Ring Road, close to the Olympic Games Village.
BISS was the first international school to be licensed by the Beijing Educational Commission, and is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and the National Centre for school Curriculum and Textbook Development (NCCT), Ministry of Education, China. The International Baccalaureate (IB) has granted BISS authorisation to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the Diploma Programme (DP).
