Discovery Bay International School (DBIS) is a very special international community school. Situated in the heart of the wonderful community of Discovery Bay, our students enjoy a distinctive learning journey that begins in the Kindergarten progresses to Primary and culminates in the Secondary section. The DBIS student experience is characterised by a highly personalised learning environment, creative approaches to teaching and learning, and a broad range of extra curricular activities.

At the heart of our educational philosophy are the values of care, cooperation, consideration and respect. Our talented teachers aim to ensure every student is known, supported, and encouraged to reach their individual potential. We are a learning community committed to the constant pursuit of excellence in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for all our students.

Please do come and visit, see the school and meet both the teachers and students. It is the only way to get a feel for the unique DBIS atmosphere.

Our Kindergarten provides an open and warm environment for Nursery and Reception children, aged 3-5. We recognise every student as a unique learner and one who is able to become confident, capable and independently creative. Through the provision of rich and diverse learning experiences, in a well resourced and vibrant environment, our students are supported in their learning journey at DBIS.
