As a group, we explore our 98,000-square-foot facility that 15 grades of students proudly call home. The tour is led by a member of the Admissions Team, and the closing Q&A session is staffed by the Senior Leadership Team. Coffee and a continental breakfast are served. Please bring your questions and your walking shoes!

Parents and students are welcome to attend two Saturday open house events this fall. You will have the opportunity to learn more about BISC by mingling with our faculty, parents and current students. Open houses are a great opportunity to interface with all of the constituents who make up the school community. In order to ensure you are able to speak with a wide representation of faculty, staff, parents and students, we recommend attending the event for the full two hours. Light snacks will be provided.
Secondary School: Wednesday, November 11, 5:30-7 p.m.
Primary School: Thursday, November 19, 5:30-7p.m.
If you are interested in a deeper dive into BISC’s renowned international curriculum, then curriculum night is for you! Primary School curriculum night will provide prospective parents and students with a curricular overview of Nursery through Year 6. Childcare will be provided for this event so parents can engage fully with the presentation. Secondary School curriculum night will provide an overview of the curriculum in Years 7-9 (middle school) as well as the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) taught in Years 10-11 and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for Years 12-13. Light snacks will be provided.
