Our son joined BISC for their N3 class. So far, we got nothing to say but great things about the school. They teachers and head of lower schools are awesome. They have a well balance curriculum between play and learn. Our son loves it and it super excited to go to school every day. Also, they huge roof top, basketball courts and soccer filed, makes a great place for kids to exercise and run.

Stay away from this school. It is run by a bunch of people whose main goal is to make money. My son is currently in 8th grade and for high school, he will be going to Walter Payton. The British school made us sign a contract 3 weeks before the results of the magnet school comes up, to secure your place at the school. Now that my son is not going to the British school, not only do they keep your downpayment ($2k), we now have to pay for the full fall semester which is $10k.
The British school purposefully made us sign the contract before the magent school results because they know some students will leave. I found out that this has been going on for years now and a lot of parents have tried suing them but they all failed because of the contract. And if you don’t sign the contract, you lose your spot so we had to and we were ready to lose the 2k but to pay for the full fall semester is just so unethical.
