We know our parents are a crucial part of our school's success. At the British International School of Boston, we rely on our dedicated families to help shape the future of our community through parent associations and other volunteer roles.
Our parents do much more than bring their children to and from school.
Involvement in your child's school plays a vital role in the development of our classrooms, clubs, athletics and social events.
We invite parents to the school a few times each year for "Conversation with the Headmaster" events to share concerns or ideas and ask questions of school administrators.
There are many ways to get involved in your child's school community, including:
- Classroom visits to discuss a profession, hobby or cultural tradition
- Providing advice and support to new families
- Planning and fundraising for school social events with the BISB Social Committee
- Organizing Staff Appreciation events
- Volunteering at school events and admissions open houses
- Supporting your child with homework
- Joining the Parent Independent School Network (PIN) and working with parents of other private schools in Boston and surrounding communities
BISB parents can also join one of three parent associations to help move our school forward:
- Class Communication Representatives help share important information and organize classroom events within each year group.
- Parent-Teacher Group members works closely with school administrators to discuss the day-to-day happenings in the school, from parent-teacher conferences to school communications practices.
- The Parent Social Committee works with staff to plan a series of events throughout the year to bring the community together.
