What Our Parents Say

We know that making big decisions about your child’s education is important, and we recognize that reviews from other parents can be very useful. We encourage you to get in touch with us if you’d like to be introduced to one of our parents and ask them questions directly.

The expectations are high for the students, but entirely appropriate for each individual - each excels in doing their best at their own individual pace. Current Parent

Our Curriculum

"Although all the private schools I visited said they could customize their curriculum to meet a child’s specific needs, the only school that had a complete system in place to allow each child to move at their own pace was BISC South Loop. No child needs to slow themselves down and wait for the other children to catch up nor take on more advanced work than their capacity can handle and suffer emotional consequences due to their speed of learning. The expectations are high for the students, but entirely appropriate for each individual - each excels in doing their best at their own individual pace."

A Fun and Nurturing Environment

"Our daughter is in full-day Nursery at BISC South Loop and she absolutely loves going to school every day. Her eyes light up as she puts on her uniform (which, by the way, saves a lot of time in arguing over what to wear to school). Both our daughter and we have made great friends and had a very positive experience. Oh, and did we mention that in between the fun that she has been having that our not-yet-four-year-old daughter has learned to read? We are impressed."

The school and its amazing staff have expertly nurtured our kids to help them both achieve their own definitions of academic excellence, social confidence, and artistic distinction. Current Parent

"Our family loves BISC South Loop because of the wonderfully balanced and exciting school experience it delivers to our children. While our two children are very different from each another, the school and its amazing staff have expertly nurtured our kids to help them both achieve their own definitions of academic excellence, social confidence, and artistic distinction. They are never bored and love going to school every day. The school is a truly beautiful place."

A Global Community

"Over the years at BISC South Loop we have come indeed to appreciate the international climate of the school. Our children have friends from all sorts of cultures, and every culture is celebrated at school. Through friendships, daily lessons, and special celebrations, our children are growing up with a world view. We have found the children and parents to be wonderfully friendly. As a parent, you can choose your own level of involvement - many parents enjoy volunteering in different ways."
