About MBIS

Marist Brothers International School (MBIS) is committed to excellence in education. Over the past 60 years, our students have consistently gone on to attend the top universities and colleges around the world.

We believe that education goes beyond a rigorous and stimulating curriculum. Our holistic approach includes a focused dedication to character – developing skills which make our students stand out from the crowd. This is a fundamental component of the Marist ‘difference’.

Located in a quiet residential area, between Kobe’s green hills and the nearby sea, MBIS has close access (a two minute walk) to two major rail lines and is only ten minutes from downtown Kobe.

Our teachers are fully certified and highly experienced. Many of our staff have been with the school for long tenures, reflecting the quality of the school and their dedication to our students. Their inspired, student-centered teaching is complemented by low student-teacher ratios – ensuring that every student has access to intensive support. Our curriculum adheres to the California State Standards and MBIS is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Although MBIS is founded on Roman Catholic religious principles, we welcome all students, regardless of religion, race, or nationality. We believe our community is our strength and hope that you can join us and experience the Marist difference.
