Built on the foundation of 30 years of tradition, BIS is building the future of learning. BIS stands for state-of-the-art schooling, an optimal learning environment and academic excellence.
A passionate team of staff is continually working on developing the school. Innovation, forward thinking and thinking outside the box is part of the DNA of BIS. The Innovation & Future Campaign has one goal - to develop the campus and reflect this way of forward thinking in the buildings and learning spaces available to the students. The Creativity & Innovation Centre (CIC) is an integral and essential part of this vision
The Creativity and Innovation Centre will be a model of modern learning facilities. The building will be located where the old sports hall currently stands, connecting the primary school buildings and the new sports hall. Under the motto "STEAM" (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths), the CIC will offer around 8,300 square metres of cutting-edge, open and interdisciplinary learning space for around 750 students, teachers and guests.
Three floors will host 18 classrooms for art and design tech, 10 flexible learning and maker spaces, 10 science labs and creative studios and, last but not least, a new auditorium to host our student performers and special events. The CIC will meet requirements of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) and support contemporary learning concepts such as interdisciplinary collaboration and technology and design.
This investment in the future of BIS requires support from the BIS community as well as companies in the greater Munich area, who value BIS in attracting highly talented expats and their families to Munich. The total cost of the CIC will be around 25 million euros. In order to realise the financing, around 1.5 - 2 million euros must be raised through fundraising by the end of 2022. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2023, with the CIC opening three years later, in 2026.
The CIC project fits into BIS's overall campus master plan. Infrastructural investments in the future include, for example, renovation work on the castle and middle building, optimisation of learning areas, or the overhaul of the energy infrastructure.
