What Our Students Say

It is essential that students look forward to coming to school in the morning. We believe this is the case for our students. But you do not have to take our word for it. Below is a selection of comments offered by some of our students explaining why they enjoy being part of the British International School of Chicago, South Loop community.

The teachers are always happy, and that helps us to learn. We feel happy at this school because we have lots of friends and people here are so considerate of one another! Year 3 Student

"I love learning about all the different things, like the World Cup, in Topic! I love's fun every day! The teachers help the kids learn, and we get to answer questions. They teach us good lessons and help us on the rooftop when we play. My favorite field trip was when we visited the Botanical Gardens because it was so beautiful. The teachers are funny, and I love assemblies because we get to find out who won the House Cup! I love the House cup part."

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. IB Student
