The British International School, Ukraine was founded in 1997 and was the first such school to offer a British style of education in Ukraine. Operating under the umbrella of the Advanced British Education Group (ABE) the school is registered by the University of Cambridge International Examinations Organisation (CIE) as a Cambridge International Centre and is a regular member of the European Council of International Schools. The school is also registered with the Ministry of Education in Ukraine.

The school originally started as a single campus in the Nivki area of Kyiv to serve the needs of a growing expatriate population looking for an International education for their children and aspiring Ukrainian parents seeing the value of such an opportunity. Offering the dual Curriculum of the National Curriculum for England and the Ukrainian Atestat ensured choice for Ukrainian parents allowing them the opportunity to graduate in both programs. 

With the demand for International education growing the school has expanded over the years to include a second campus in the Pechersk region of Kyiv as we as a campus in the city of Dnipropetrovsk. The school quickly became recognised as one of the top schools in Ukraine receiving frequent recognition for delivering a quality education. Building on our rich and successful history the school continues to go forward and is working towards becoming an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) authorised school with plans to do the same for the International Baccalaureate Diploma for the High School.
