Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are thrilled to have your child as a part of our small learning community. In BIHS, students engage with complex problems, participate in fieldwork across the Bay Area, develop critical-thinking and leadership skills, take action to improve their communities, reflect upon their understanding of and place in our world. We are among a growing community of schools across the US who adopt an “IB for all” approach, in which all of our students take part in aspects of the world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) program during 11th and 12th grade.
We encourage everyone to call us “Berkeley International High School” or “BIHS”. While we use the IB curricular framework in some classes, BIHS more accurately describes who we are and acknowledges the different opportunities within our learning community. Go here to learn more about the IB Program in BIHS.
