BIBA was founded in 2006 by a group of passionate educators with a mission to develop students who are bilingual ambassadors and are well versed in both Eastern and Western culture. As such, our goal is to offer high-quality bilingual education that is rooted in Chinese culture and heritage in preparation for attending high quality overseas universities after graduating from BIBA. This year, BIBA celebrates 10 years of excellence in education. Our over 1100 students and 250 staff come from more than 30 different countries. Our campus includes an Early Childhood Center (ECC), Elementary School, Middle School, and High School. BIBA is an IB World School and is authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). We are accredited by Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC) and are members of Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) and International Schools Association of China (ISAC).
