Why Braeburn?

A very warm welcome to Braeburn Dar es Salaam International School. Opened in September 2015, BDIS is the newest school in the Braeburn group. Offering a first class British education, taught by a team of professional, dedicated teachers, we help our students develop the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to enjoy successful lives.

Braeburn is committed to providing opportunities for students of different abilities to develop both academically and socially and in doing so to become confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens.  We strongly believe in a holistic approach to learning and our school is a happy, safe environment in which our students are encouraged to explore their interests and identify their talents. Our curriculum is diverse, extends beyond the classroom and recognises not only the significance of the pursuit of high academic achievement but also emphasises the importance of purposeful engagement in sport, the creative arts, outdoor pursuits and community service. The progress of each individual is followed closely allowing extension or support to be provided as needed. 

We take great pride in our students, who are confident, yet respectful, independent yet sociable but most importantly are happy and want to learn, participate and achieve. We see in them the leaders and professionals of tomorrow. 

We value and respect the families of our students and work hard to ensure they feel part of the school community. Education is most effective when the partnership between home and school is strong. 

We look forward to welcoming you to BDIS in the near future.
