In Lincoln Park, Chicago's motto "urbs in horto" — or "City in a Garden", truly comes to life. Historic churches and handsome brick row houses nestled within landmark districts sit next to peaceful parks, while quiet, tree-lined residential areas give way to bustling business corridors. The location of our campus provides easy access to families living in the Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Bucktown, Wicker Park, West Town, Gold Coast, West Loop and Roscoe Village neighborhoods to name a few.
A Welcome Arrival for All New Students
From your family's first contact with the British International School of Chicago, you are welcomed into the community and guided through every step of getting to know the school.
Your child will:
- Join us for a day of activities and lessons and spend the day with their peers in one of our classrooms.
- Be paired with a buddy who will lead them through the day and show them the ropes.
- Become part of one of the four Houses in our house system, a whole-school approach to self-motivation that includes team building, camaraderie and friendly competition.
Our caring school community is a diverse group comprised of local and international families. We admit new families to the school year-round, and our teachers and students are accustomed to making incoming students feel welcome and accepted.
