Escuela Bilingüe Internacional (EBI) is an independent PreK-8 school offering a multilingual, international education that inspires our students to engage with a changing global world with character and empathy. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) certified school in the heart of the East Bay, EBI helps students engage as both global citizens and critical thinkers. Character development is at the heart of what we do; our students are empathetic and compassionate as well as academically prepared for future success.
At EBI, students learn in an immersive Spanish language environment, where they begin their journey of cultural awareness and develop fluency in a language other than English. With the addition of Mandarin in 3rd grade, students expand their cultural and linguistic competencies. Graduates of EBI have basic conversational skills in Mandarin and are fully literate in Spanish and English.
Equally important, EBI students have an awareness of their role as a member of the global community. From that awareness, our students are positioned to transform the world. EBI develops a lifelong love of learning, which translates to a lifetime of opportunity.
