BFIS is an American school in Barcelona from Nursery to High School. Affiliated with the US Department of State Office of Overseas Schools, the school embraces American educational principles and methods, within the context of a truly international environment and awards three diplomas: American High School, Spanish Bachillerato and International Baccalaureate.
Its diverse and engaged student body, faculty and parent community—now comprised of almost 50 nationalities and cultural heritages—is the heart and soul of the school. English is the language of instruction, with language courses offered in Spanish, Catalan and French.
The teaching approach at BFIS is based on differentiated instruction and places the student at the centre of the learning process. BFIS encourages and supports students to be curious, independent learners who pursue their passions and understand the beauty and power of knowledge. The educational programme at BFIS is built upon three central essential concepts: Curriculum, Character, and Community. These core areas are crucial elements for a well-rounded education and emphasise the importance of balancing the academic, social, and emotional aspects of school life so the students can develop into creative, self-confident, and responsible individuals.
BFIS graduates receive offers of acceptance and merit-based scholarships from some of the most prestigious universities in the world.
