What Students & Parents Say: Joe, Nick and Grace

Meet Joe, Nick and Grace! Besides a love for chocolate ice cream, there's something else these siblings have in common. They have been Bulldogs for 10+ years! Here's what these Secondary students and their family say about the school's personalized instruction, close-knit community and outstanding teachers.

  • British International School of Chicago, South Loop | Private School Chicago
What Joe Says

“As I am applying for college, I realize how fortunate I have been to attend this school. The individualized teaching and IB Program, which allows me to pursue my interests, have been amazing. The teachers over my 10+ years have been inspiring as role models. Since they are all from the UK and beyond, they bring a global perspective. I can’t imagine having a better experience anywhere else.”

What Nick Says

“I have really enjoyed the smaller classes and individualized learning. I've had so many great teachers over the years.”

What Grace Says

“My favorite part of school is the friendships I've made. I also like getting to change classes throughout the day in Middle School."

What Mom & Dad Say

“We have been with the school as it evolved on three campuses over 10+ years. Regardless of the many excellent options available in Chicago, we couldn't be happier with our educational experience here. Our three children have very different personalities and learning styles, and we believe the quality of teaching is exceptional. Competition for positions from a global pool of applicants ensures a high caliber of teachers. Each of our children have benefitted from differentiated teaching styles tailored to their learning needs. Small class sizes and a state-of-the-art, progressive curriculum assisted by technology and resources are just part of the world-class learning experience.”
