Learning to Take Risks

Selective universities around the globe seek students who are not afraid to take on new challenges. At MIT, admissions representatives say they are looking for students who are,"growing, changing, taking risks, and learning from mistakes."

At the British International School of Boston, we know the best learning experiences include some risk. Your child will set personalized goals and learn to challenge themselves to aid in their development.

Your child will not only absorb knowledge presented in the classroom, but will discover how to apply and challenge that knowledge to think independently and form their own opinions.

Our entire school community helps one another in this process. At weekly assemblies we celebrate students who have taken learning risks and demonstrated personal attributes we cultivate, from adaptability, resilience and persistence to cooperation and communication.

With a high regard for the wellbeing and safety of each member of our community, we help our students understand that progress cannot come without risk.
