The American School of Bilbao has established a proud heritage and tradition within the local community that we serve. At the same time, we have always looked to grow and improve our teaching practice in order to provide the best opportunities for all students to achieve academic success; to be prepared for future challenges; and to be able to participate responsibly within a global society.

The Lower School and Early Childhood sections at the American School have officially received candidate status for the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). This is an important milestone for the Lower School team and means that we are progressing towards the standards and practices - the mark of quality assurance - that all IB schools must satisfy to receive authorization.
