Our programme is designed to meet the needs of expatriate parents who want to give their child the chance to integrate into the local community, but don't want to neglect the development of their child’s English skills. We are also the choice for local parents who want their children to develop native-level English skills, and for those parents who need all-day schooling and care for their children.
OBS students have a choice of future educational options open to them. OBS Upper School, which offers gymnasium and secondary school level education, is also fully bilingual and provides the following options for students, a High School Diploma, the Bilingual Matura, AP’s and SAT’s. Our current Grade 6 students will be the first class at OBS to prepare for the International Baccaleaurate (IB) Diploma Programme in 2021.
