Dear QSI Sarajevo Community,
Welcome to QSI International School of Sarajevo! Established in 1997, QSIS has been serving the expatriate and local families of Sarajevo for the past 25 years and prides itself on being both the oldest and most forward-thinking school of its kind in the city.
As a school, we believe it is our job to provide students with the skills and attitudes that will prepare them for success throughout their lives as global citizens. Our success orientations help students grow not only academically, but also socially and emotionally, into kind, responsible, and trustworthy young people who show concern not only for each other but also for the world around them. We encourage families to take an active role in our community as we see education as a partnership between home and school.
By utilizing the Mastery Learning framework, students are given the time and support to achieve mastery in each subject before moving forward to more challenging skills. In this way, each child is treated as an individual. Our dedicated teachers work with each child on developing the tools that they need to grow at their own pace. Accredited by the Middle States Association (MSA), our program provides the rigor and structure to challenge students appropriately to meet their own unique educational goals.
In addition to the core academics, QSIS offers classes in art, music, technology, library, physical education, and Bosnian, French, and German languages which provide students time to explore their creativity and self-expression. Our extensive after-school activities program encourages students to try new experiences and promotes the idea that we are all life-long learners. As a proud member of the Central and Eastern European Schools Association (CEESA), 11YO+ students have opportunities to engage in competitions and experiences at CEESA events including soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross-country, mathematics club, Model United Nations, Knowledge Bowl, and speech and debate.
In our newly reconstructed building, we have almost 4,000 square meters, with ample space for:
- 22 Large classrooms
- Fitness room
- Changing rooms with showers
- School kitchen and cafeteria
- Two computer labs
- Maker Space
- Two science labs
- Large indoor playground
- Two outdoor playgrounds for students
- Small garden
- Library with 16,000 books

I look forward to working with everyone in the community to provide a supportive and engaging environment where our students can thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. Please contact the school to plan a visit and see our campus!
