Founded in 2020, Barcelona High School (BHS) is a non-traditional, innovative, diverse, international American school start-up, from grades 7th to 12th, perfectly located in the most central area of Barcelona Spain, easily accessible by all modes of transportation.
While BHS is an American school, it serves as the international school in Barcelona for the global community. For example, only a minority of BHS students apply to universities in USA, or Canada. Most graduating students apply to universities throughout Europe that have Bachelors degrees in English, including in Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, and the Nordic countries.
BHS has a small student-teacher ratio to provide personalized attention and learning, and students attend class as a group across all grade levels and nationalities, like one big family, so students not only excel academically, but socially, emotionally and psychologically as well.
The academics consist of accredited US curriculum courses taught in native English. AP courses are also available if students want courses equivalent to International Baccalaureate (IB) or A levels, although they are not mandatory.
Academic learning is supplemented with social and creative activities, group projects, international speakers, tech learning, and much more to help students increase their emotional intelligence while simultaneously expanding their opportunities and finding their passions in life.
Students graduate by completing the 12th grade, and receive an official American High School Diploma, which allows them to attend international universities throughout the world, not only in USA.
