The International School of Belgrade, housed in a remodelled villa,
together with fourteen adjacent classrooms, and a large multi-purpose
room, is in a residential area. There is adequate play space. In
March 2003, grades 6-8 moved to a newly renovated facility on a
2.5 hectare site. The new site is about 200 metres from the Lower
school. In 2004-5, grade 10 and in subsequent years, the remainder
of the high school program will be added.
The Primary Years and Middle Years Programmes of the International
Baccalaureate Organization are in the implementation stage. The
curriculum is similar to that of US public schools. Students may
elect to study either French or Serbian as a foreign language. Classes
in English as a second language are offered to all non-English speaking
students. Computer literacy and laboratory science classes are included
as part of the regular program.
The International School of Belgrade year extends from early September
to late June with Fall, Christmas, Winter, and Spring recesses.
The school offers an extensive after-school enrichment/activity
The student body is very mobile, usually staying three years and
either returning to their home country or moving to another overseas
post. At present 29 nations are represented. Most of the staff have
been associated with the school for many years. Specialists include
teachers of music, physical education, French, computer and ESL
teachers, a librarian, a guidance counselor and a physician. The
staff consists of both long-term local teachers and a large cadre
of internationally recruited staff
The International School of Belgrade, which was founded in 1948,
is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors, three of whom
are appointed by the American ambassador; four are elected by the

of the school. In addition, the American Embassy Administrative
Officer is an ex-officio member of the School Board. Membership
of the Association is automatically conferred on the parents or
guardians of children enrolled in the school.
Admission to International School of Belgrade is by application.
