The BME International Secondary Grammar School is an IB Diploma Programme school. The first group of nine students from BME ISGS along with students from outside the school started the IB in September 2015 and completed their IB Diploma Programme in May 2017. The IB Diploma Programme at BME ISGS is a selective programme. Given its advanced nature, certain requirements need to be met in the pre-IB years in order to be admitted to the IB Diploma Programme for the final two years of high school.

Our mission statement

The goal of education is to develop the self and find one’s voice. To this aim the BME International Secondary School mentors students to reach high academic standards, engage in the school and local community, and explore life ambitions while focusing on respect for the visions of others. Having a multinational student community, the BME ISGS stresses the integration of the student by developing meaningful relationships with other students, into the broader values and rationales of the international community.


Language program

The school believes that students from so many countries need a great deal of support in learning academic and classroom English. Students are divided into groups at four levels of English ranging from B1+/B2 to C2. They may also choose to study Spanish, German or French languages. All these courses are taught and sequenced according to the Hungarian National Core Curriculum.

Outward looking

As an international school, BME International Secondary Grammar School believes there should be opportunities for short-term student exchanges every year, so students regularly participate in ERASMUS programs with other schools throughout Europe and often receive visitors themselves. Students are encouraged to participate in these programs and there are various sport and academic after-school activities including theatres, cinemas, excursions and voluntary work.
