International School of Brooklyn Reviews
ISB has proven to grow our children to think globally and take risks! The IB curriculum joined with a truly immersive language experience has exceeded our expectations. They way our kids think and ask questions is exactly what we want for our children to be successful as adults.
ISB has a wonderful community. Any day you visit the school, you'll see Middle School students interacting with Pre-School students. You'll hear more languages than the French, Spanish & English being taught and you'll feel welcome by the teachers, administrators & parents.
ISB has the winning formula for our children!
As a parent, I think that the teachers are very attentive to the needs of each child and often communicate with parents. Kids are taught in a target language (French or Spanish) and English which makes the program comprehensive. However the teachers make it seem effortless.
In addition to the academics, I have noticed that ISB also develop a positive attitude towards news things: my daughter and her friends are very curious about new things and accepting of things being different than what they do at home. Both the students and teachers at ISB come from various countries and background.
My favorite thing at ISB is however the community. I am always impressed at the number of interesting and committed people I have met through the school.
