Highest Quality Learning

Students at British International School of Chicago, South Loop excel by exploring global perspectives through personalized instruction and international curriculum.

Personalized Learning

In other schools, teachers and textbooks determine what students learn. At British International School of Chicago, South Loop, we plan and present our lessons according to how each student learns. Small class sizes under 22 mean our teachers know every student individually and can respond to your child’s strengths, adapting our learning model to help them overcome challenges. We personalize learning for each child so they can understand and articulate their own learning goals as well as recognize the strategies that help them learn best. Highly skilled in differentiated learning styles, our teachers instill a love of learning, encourage independent inquiry and ensure children actively participate in the learning process.

International Curriculum

Our curriculum combines the strengths of the best in the world:

  • International Primary Curriculum\Early Years Foundation Stage framework
  • English National Curriculum
  • International General Certificates of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
  • International Baccalaureate (IB)

This engaging curriculum, coupled with high expectations and academic standards, enables students to meet and exceed their potential, performing well beyond expectations for their age. Students in our network of schools have an outstanding track record of success, with International Baccalaureate exam scores among the top 5% in the world and acceptances into the most prestigious colleges and universities in the United States and abroad.
