Our academic program is a unique combination of the skills-based method of Cambridge International curriculum and the lexical knowledge-based method of the Hungarian curriculum. The students of our International Academic Program follow the world recognized Cambridge International Curriculum. The students of our Bilingual Academic Program follow both the Curriculum Framework for Bilingual Schools of the Hungarian National Curriculum and the Curriculum Framework of the Cambridge International Examinations’ curriculum.
Our average class size is 14-18. As a result, we can ensure individual attention is paid to every student, and that the personal needs of each child are taken into consideration to achieve their maximum educational progress.
We believe that appropriate emotional, psychological and physical progress of a child is indispensable for their mental development. ISB is a truly friendly and caring school with a family-like atmosphere. We provide one of the healthiest and greenest environments for our students in Budapest, thanks to the location of our school in the forested Buda-hills.
The average time spent with ISB for a staff member is 6 years and there are several teachers working with us for more than 10 years. Their professionalism and creativity make learning a joyful experience for the students every day.
The Hungarian community at ISB supports the integration of foreign or returning families into Hungarian social life. Foreign children quickly and easily integrate into the Hungarian community, whilst sharing much new knowledge and customs with their Hungarian friends.
At the end of Grade 5 (Key Stage 2), Grade 8 (Key Stage 3) and Grade 10 (Key Stage 4, IGCSE) the children can take official Cambridge examinations. This is an opportunity to gain internationally recognised qualifications that ensures the students have the opportunity to continue their studies abroad if they wish to.
