Bandung Alliance Intercultural School (BAIS), one of Indonesia’s oldest international schools (Estd. 1956), has equipped its students to be ready for life’s challenges throughout its 60+ year history. BAIS provides a quality education which prepares students for the challenges of the 21st century by allowing them to realize their full potential.

BAIS fosters a family atmosphere inside and outside the classroom setting and has many social events for parents, teachers, and children to get to know each other.

Bandung Alliance Intercultural School is a member of the Network of International Christian Schools (NICS). NICS, headquartered in the United States, operates schools around the world. BAIS is a member in good standing with the East Asia Regional Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS), The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

BAIS students and teachers represent many different nationalities. Even though school enrollment continues to grow, it still offers small classes and individual attention to students in classrooms with low teacher to student ratios.

Network of International Christian Schools (NICS) operates 19 schools in 16 countries around the world. BAIS benefits in several ways as a result of being part of this larger international network of schools.

New faculty members are recruited through the NICS office. NICS helps place Christian teachers in positions that would be the “best fit” for their credentials, talents, and desires.

NICS provides expertise and advice to schools in the network. BAIS benefits from this advice and ideas from our sister schools around the world.

NICS provides all incoming faculty a two-week intensive training experience on transitioning to a new culture and working with “third culture kids.”

NICS Mission & Purpose

The mission of NICS is to establish a worldwide network of international Christian schools staffed by qualified Christian educators, instilling in each student a Biblical worldview in an environment of academic excellence and respect for people of all cultures and religions.


Reaching the world for Christ through international Christian education.


NICS (Network of International Christian Schools) is founded on the belief that a major thrust for world evangelism and discipleship for Christ can happen through the classroom with the impact made by committed Christian educators overseas. Children have many teachers in their lives, whether they be at home, in the classroom, on the street or elsewhere; none, however, have a more powerful impact than educators in the classroom.
