    "Each child is treated as an individual. The teachers, and the school as a whole, recognise that not all children learn in the same way. Potential issues are caught early due to small class sizes and parents are quickly contacted if a problem area is identified to engage in a discussion about the best way to manage anything that might hinder their child's learning. Additional support is easily organised should the need arise and this is incorporated into the school day without interrupting or negatively impacting the timetable. BISB teaches children how to learn, i.e. the teachers equip pupils with the tools they need to learn, to gather and use information and to work to the best of their ability, rather than by pure rote learning. My children arrived at the school from the French public education system where my son was not enthused by school. His first BISB teacher helped transform him from a reluctant student into one who always wants to do his best, both for himself and for his teachers. Every teacher has his or her own style and this enhances the learning experience in my opinion."

    "BISB is not just a school, it's a community. The children are taught by passionate and innovative educators in an international environment, the IB programme being especially significant, which will prepare them for everything that life might throw at them. Academic education is, of course, the primary the reason that our children go to school, however, equally important are the life and social skills that we as parents teach them at home and which are reinforced at BISB to great effect. An outstanding education is very important but just as valuable is encouraging the growth of young adults with compassion, drive, self confidence and humility."

    "I love the friends and the connections I have made. I appreciate how my school has shaped me into the overall better person I am today. BISB has given me so many fond memories and life lessons I will never forget. Because of my school i have enjoyed learning and look forward to my college experience."
