The Bilingual International School of Strasbourg is part of the Le Gymnase Lucie Berger Primary School, a private school under contract with the French government. As such, BISS is able to take advantage of all the facilities of a much larger institution, including sports halls, the library and computer network. While continuing to offer a unique programme of studies, this arrangement enhances student security and offers wider opportunities for extra-curricular activities. Le Gymnase has full administrative responsibility for BISS. Students follow the same daily schedule and holiday schedule as the other Gymnase students. BISS offers an international bilingual English-French education to children from 1st to 5th grade.
