    Our son began at BISC LP when he was three years old. After seven years, he's graduating and will continue at the South Loop campus. Initially, we chose BISC LP because we appreciated the close proximity to our home in LP and the unique curriculum I like to call a "Renaissance program." We quickly realized the primary reason we stay is because of the genuine concern shown to our son by staff and teachers. He is not only miles beyond his peers from other schools in terms of reading, mathematics and science, but he is also socially intelligent and responsible as well -- and HAPPY.

    Teachers take a subject and teach all aspects of it by way of measurement, observation, discussion, writing and presentation. Students are equipped with all necessary tools and learn at their own pace/in their own way so as to foster original ways of thinking.

    I can't say enough positive things about BISC Lincoln Park and highly recommend it!

    We are very pleased with British International School, Lincoln Park! First, our children love the environment and the teachers. Their skills are developing and progressing steadily and we are definitely impressed! Reading chapter books in Kindergarten and emerging reader in Nursery. Secondly, the community for kids and parents is fantastic! Many opportunities to observe your child in the classroom as well as to meet and interact with other parents. We highly recommend!
    BISC is the best school in the city, hands down. We love the BISC families and our little community. The teachers are outstanding, the administration is wonderful and the parents have become our second family. There is no place we would rather be!
