Chloe Yeoh, Year 9
Being a student at BISS is definitely already a privilege that all pupils here have. With the correct working environment for students, to the well-trained and knowledgeable staff, it definitely makes the education journey for us easier, boosting our confidence and academics to a high standard. With BISS being an international school, students are able to have the opportunity to not just learn through the classroom, but also educate ourselves through the people around us. The tremendous amount of diversity exposes us to many cultures and lets us learn from one another, respecting each other’s interests and values, making us not only feel happy about getting to know different people, but also celebrates everyone’s lives and cultures.

I have made so many friends over the last four years from all over the world.

Angel Dai, Year 12
When I first came to BISS in Year 12, so many students and teachers were kind to me – they helped me when I was feeling lost.
Kelly Wu, Year 12
BISS creates a positive learning environment with the teachers, where students are always able to ask teachers anything they don't understand. At the same time, there are countless opportunities for students to participate in sports, like in ECAs, and for students to be part of the Performing Arts. This has become especially enjoyable because of school concerts, Performing Arts Festivals and the school's last production of 'Little Shop of Horrors'. All these aspects help us students develop essential skills to enter the world's top universities.
Justin Graf, Year 13
The BISS faculty is incredibly supportive when a student is in need of academic support, whether it’s at IGCSE or IB level.
