“We believe the inclusion of ‘International’ more accurately reflects the kind of education we espouse and aptly celebrates our diverse school community,” said British International School of Boston Headmaster Paul Wiseman. “Our former name served our school very well, but as our school community continues to grow and develop, our name should reflect those changes and evolve with us.”
The British International School of Boston is a co-educational day school in Jamaica Plain, educating students from 18 months to 18 years of age. Students hail from Greater Boston and from all over the world, with more than 78 heritages and 25 languages represented in the diverse school community.
The school began the process of changing its name more than one year ago, after joining Nord Anglia Education, a global education network of 29 schools.
While the school’s name has changed, its mission to prepare students for the global future has not. The school has long been committed to providing students with a lifelong love of learning, supporting and challenging each child according to their individual needs through rigorous international curricula and ongoing assessment.
Over the last few years, the school has seen tremendous growth, celebrating its largest graduating class in June 2014 and welcoming more than 400 students at the start of this 2014-2015 school year. BISB graduates attend top universities in the United States and around the globe, equipped with the highly respected International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Director of Admissions Lisa van Horne said the new school name highlights the school’s commitment to preparing students to take on active roles in the increasingly interconnected global community.
