Providing bilingual education to future leaders

...serving the educational needs of children in our community

About us

International Bilingual School (IBS) is a private school with more than 250 students from kindergarten to high school level. The school has a total of 43 employees, made up of 26 teachers and 17 administrative staff. Founded in 2009, IBS aims to offer high quality, bilingual education to children of both Senegalese and expatriate families. It is located in Liberté 6 Extension/Sacre Coeur 3, a few minutes' walk from the VDN highway. The school is authorized by the Ministry of National Education via a ministerial decree since January 2015.
IBS started with only 34 children in 2009 with nursery and early reception classes and has grown astronomically to over 250 students in the current school year and continues to grow. IBS has 3 classes in the nursery section, six primary classes and 7 secondary classes.
It offers the Senegalese national curriculum, but reinforced by elements of the British/American programs based in English, while computer literacy are introduced from the early stages of nursery and primary. Students actively engage in sports and physical education, together with other basic subjects. Our classes are kept to a maximum of 25 students and have both a class teacher and an assistant. The entire school is organized in three sections: the preschool section, primary section and college section. All classrooms are well ventilated and on top of that, the school has a computer lab, a plastic art studio and well-equipped play areas. Each of the three sections is led by a qualified and experienced teacher, combining knowledge of the national curriculum with years of teaching experience.
The section heads, as well as the school director constitute the school faculty team. IBS has an excellent reputation in Dakar for providing high quality education in a child-friendly environment. Being a bilingual school, it is determined to place the child at the heart of everything and also make it a place where learning is exciting, the values of life are learned and everyone is respected for the person they are.
The teaching staff are made up of qualified teachers, though a rigorous internal staff training program ensures that they are familiar with our academic approach and methodology. IBS was sponsored by the British Council on a "Connecting classrooms project" which paired us with Newtown Primary School, Exeter in the UK. This project aimed to make joint study programs on education and global citizenship.
The school welcomes children from a very wide variety of nationalities and cultures.

IBS seeks to enroll students of good character and demonstrated academic, sport and cultural ability and achievement. Our vision, as a Group of schools is to develop our students to become global achievers. Students who want to take advantage of the opportunities for growth and development and who will bring a broad range of backgrounds, talents and interest are encouraged to apply for a place at this progressive high school.
We admit students from any ethnic, cultural and linguistic background as our methods are well tailored to helping students learn from a culture or language that is not theirs without losing their own individual identity. Our school is unique in the sense that it gives the student the capability of being able to speak and work in both French and English throughout his entire school period and beyond. We assist the English speakers acquire the French language skills and vice versa.
Admissions for a particular academic year begin from the month of June and due to our philosophy of not exceeding an average of 25 students per class, places are very competitive. Prospective students should therefore apply as early as possible.
For a more detailed information, it is advised to contact the school office.
We would love to see you or hear from you!
