Our Approach

At British International School of Washington, learning extends far beyond the walls of the classroom where possibility becomes an opportunity.

What is Personalized Learning?

We place each student at the center of their own learning experience. Teachers consider learning styles as well as existing knowledge, skills, and understanding to develop lessons and activities that offer personal challenge, growth, and success. 

What Does Personalized Learning Look Like?

Our approach is based on the latest education research.  Using a personalized approach to challenge and stretch their abilities, our students can achieve high levels of performance.  Your child will be inspired to go beyond the books and truly engage with their personal learning journey.

We don’t stop at just academic success. Our approach is designed to develop your child into a socially-confident global citizen. We foster leadership skills, ambition, dedication, respect, cultural awareness, and sensitivity. Our school will prepare your child to succeed anywhere in the world. 

We understand that success looks different for every child and children are encouraged to learn in ways that challenge them to continually grow. Teachers support a variety of learning styles through both teacher-led and student led learning across individual and group activities.
