Marist Brothers International School (MBIS) is a private, college-preparatory school, catering to students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. Since opening our doors in 1951, our graduates have consistently achieved placements in universities and colleges around the world. MBIS has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) since 1972, and became an IB World School in 2017. We are committed to excellence in education, but believe that excellence means more than a rigorous and stimulating curriculum. Our holistic approach includes a focused dedication to character – developing skills which make our students stand out from the crowd. Character and community are at our heart – the foundation of the Marist ‘difference’.
