About us

BMIS is an international school operating within Baku Modern Educational Complex (BMEC). BMEC, formerly known as Baku Modern School, was founded in 2012 by group of local businessmen with the primary intention of creating impeccable ambience for quality education. Initially, BMIS was registered as a school within a school. In 2016, organizational changes occurred, and BMIS became an independent school as a part of BMEC. The school has an indoor sports hall, an indoor swimming pool, as well as an outdoor artificial turf soccer field. All classrooms, laboratories, and extra-curricular facilities are equipped with the latest technologies, in order to provide the highest quality learning environment possible. Classrooms are geared towards specific subjects, including science laboratories, Information technology centers, the library, art rooms, the robotic engineering room, the chess room, the dance hall, as well as a 200 seat Auditorium. Additionally, our health care center is staffed by fully licensed medical doctors and psychologists. BMIS has a unique curriculum designed and developed for its elementary school. The curriculum is prepared based on Common Core State Standards and AERO. The curriculum is consistent with the school mission and designed to achieve the school wide learning outcomes.

At BMIS, students stay from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. After 3:00 pm students complete their homework assignments with presence of teaching assistants, and take a part in various extra-curricular activities, including sports.
