Founded in 2020, Barcelona High School (BHS) is the fastest growing school in Europe.
BHS is a non-traditional, flexible and dynamic International and American school in Barcelona Spain. BHS prides itself on its one of a kind student-centered learning pedagogy known as the BHS Method™.
BHS is centrally located in Barcelona, instead of outside the city like the other
international and American schools. The school campus is in the bohemian neighborhood of Gracia with perfect access to all modes of public transportation.
Academics consist of accredited US curriculum courses taught in native English. AP courses are also available for advanced academic students, although they are not obligatory. AP classes are the US equivalent to International Baccalaureate (IB), and A levels of the British system.
BHS has a small student-teacher ratio and students attend school as one big family. The space is open and dynamic causing students to excel academically, socially and emotionally. Moreover, the school encourages students from different grade levels and nationalities to interact which leads to an incredible blend of ideas.
To enhance learning, students are provided with a range of supporting components. These include: mental health and emotional well-being, social and creative activities to make friends, international speakers, and career and life counseling. Naturally, students increase their emotional intelligence while expanding their opportunities and finding their life passions.
Students graduate when completing the 12th grade. They then receive an official American High School Diploma at the BHS Graduation Ceremony which allows them to attend international universities throughout the world. While some students plan to attend universities in USA, most BHS students attend universities in Europe that offer Bachelors degrees in English.
