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’.
Marist Brothers International School is fully accredited by the world-renowned Western Association of Schools and Colleges and is an IBO World School. WASC is a California-based accrediting agency (one of the six regional agencies in the United States), working with schools in the United States and around the world to ensure students receive a well-rounded, high quality education. Furthermore, as an IBO World School, MBIS is authorized to provide the prestigious International Baccalaureate Programme:
The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
Additionally, MBIS is proud to be a member of and support the East Asia Regional Council of Schools (EARCOS – an organization with over 160 member-schools throughout the region), and the Japan Council of International Schools (JCIS – a collegial and collaborative network of international schools within Japan).
Our accreditation and commitment to educational excellence means that our students have been able to further their academic careers at colleges and universities throughout the world. Beyond simply being accepted to great educational institutions, we know from experience that our graduates are well-prepared for success in the future.
Marist Brothers International School is an authorized IB World School offering the IB DP and is a candidate school* for the PYP and MYP. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.
