Your child deserves more than is the norm in a traditional elementary school. The British International School of Boston offers that.
In our Lower School, students use a unique combination of the National Curriculum of England and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), offering structure in core subjects as well as creativity, personal development and developing global awareness.
The National Curriculum of England
The National Curriculum of England is valued by thousands of schools around the globe for its well-conceived structure. It allows your child's progress to be tracked individually, freeing our teachers to offer your child both the support and the challenge they need. It also creates an environment in which your child becomes an integral part of the learning journey.
Our core subjects of math and literacy are taught using the National Curriculum of England.
The International Primary Curriculum
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is one of the fastest growing curricula in the world, used in more than 1,600 schools and 92 countries. Rooted in an understanding of how your child's brain is developing, the IPC lays a foundation for future success and an appreciation of the greater world.
The IPC uses a thematic approach, which weaves together a variety of subjects in an integrated and interesting way your child will love. Topics such as "Chocolate," "Myths and Legends," "Brainwave," "Going Global" and "Making the News" will bring learning to life as your child studies history, geography, science, art, music, technology and more through these themes.
With international mindedness imbedded throughout, this program also allows your child to develop a deep awareness of other cultures and heritages. Equal focus is given to the development of individual qualities essential to 21st century success, including morality, respect, adapability and perseverance.
Rounding out your child's experiences will be specialized lessons in physical education, music, computer skills, art and science. Your child will have weekly French lessons throughout the Lower School, and beginning in Year 3 will also study Spanish each week.
