International School of Brooklyn Reviews

ISB has been instrumental in helping us raise our children to be not only bilingual, but also bi-cultural. Aside from offering an immersion program we really value how children are taught through inquiry, where asking questions and finding answers is key to the learning process, more than simply being presented with facts. ISB has taught our children to become global citizens who are open-minded and appreciate other cultures and backgrounds. ISB’s strong sense of community is another factor we appreciate and we feel very fortunate to be a part of. We know from first hand experience that ISB will allow our children to continue to be inquires and independent thinkers as well as caring and thoughtful world citizens!

My daughter has been attending the French program at International School of Brooklyn (ISB) for 5 years. She loves her school! She is always looking forward to go to school not only to see her friends but also to learn new things.

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.
We believed it was important to offer our children a bilingual education given the languages spoken in our home and our children have truly had an exceptional experience at ISB. The level of education in the target language sets ISB apart from other bilingual programs. In addition to the bilingual education, the school's curriculum and its focus on units of inquiry provides students with an opportunity to learn about subjects in an interdisciplinary way. Beyond the school's curriculum, the teachers and administration themselves demonstrate on a daily basis a real engagement with the students and their commitment to education. The diversity of the student body and the engagement of parents in the school further create a rich school culture and strong sense of community.
