    Teachers are fantastic. I can't believe the rate of progress in my son's learning. What's more, we get excellent, regular communication from his teacher through the Seesaw app, among other tools, which helps us know what he's up to. There's so much more than book learning that goes on, here. Both my son and I are a particular fan of the forest school program - learning in the woods! The building isn't the nicest, but the campus is beautiful and the play spaces are up to date and safely contained. I can't imagine a better program for a student of my son's age (pre-K); he is already reading quite fluently as a result of this school and I'm blown away by his knowledge in all kinds of areas!

    My daughter is currently in year 2 (first grade). We are so happy with the personalized approach the school is taking to each child’s education. They identify each student’s strengths and weaknesses and offer personalized Curriculum and attention to each child. The school has a wonderful, supportive community and we cannot be happier that we chose it!
    Our daughter came to BISB in middle school and was immediately welcomed and included by her peers – students who come from all over the world! She has been challenged by teachers who genuinely care about her growth as a student and as a person. Staff are warm and supportive. We are especially excited about the Int’l Baccalaureate program that will give her an incredibly rigorous and well-rounded preparation for college.

    She has been able to explore new interests like Science Olympiad, drama, and basketball while continuing with her passions of sports (tennis and soccer) and creative writing. The athletic teams will never be Division I champs, but they field competitive, strong teams and teach teamwork and sportsmanship. We were lucky to have several top-notch school options for our daughter and are incredibly happy to have found BISB.
