"Today, I am chasing my dream at the Paris Campus of the Parsons School of Design... Completing the IBDP program at BISH was a crucial step in my transition from school to college last year... I feel I am at a definite advantage given my rigorous IBDP training. What I loved about my time at BISH is the immense support I received from my teachers, which I will forever hold close to my heart. They taught me to broaden my horizon and think out of the box to become a true IB learner."

With a diverse student body including 50+ nationalities and more than 10 mother-tongue languages, students at BISH learn to interact with people who are different from themselves resulting in intercultural understanding and respect. Further, BISH's highly trained international teachers focus on the holistic development of each student: intellectual, emotional, social, physical and creative. This is directly in line with the IBDP's mission to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create positive change in their communities.

BISH's STEAM programme (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) also plays an invaluable part in helping students develop academic, social and personal success. Students are given the opportunities to explore practical hands-on problem-solving in state-of-the-art facilities. This helps them develop transferrable skills such as creativity, curiosity, resilience, resourcefulness, collaboration, and confidence to help pave the way to achieving more than they ever thought possible.

Every parent wants the best for their child — so do we. We are ambitious for our students and our staff. As part of the Nord Anglia Education family of schools, BISH students are provided unparalleled opportunities and enriched learning, with collaborations with the world's best organizations, The Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and UNICEF.
