The curriculum is essentially international. Beijing BISS International School is an authorized International Baccalaureate Organization PYP and Diploma Programme school and is currently implementing the MYP. Grades 9 and 10 students follow a syllabus for IGCSEs. All teachers are graduates in the field of education, design or language. Local graduates act as classroom assistants. Student entry into mainstream or ESOL groups is determined by admission placement tests for fluency in English. An Optimal Learning Centre (OLC) focuses on a range of student needs and an enrichment programme. Teacher student ratios are good, enabling maximum interactive opportunities within the classroom.
