I am delighted that you're considering the British International School of Washington. I'd like to share
some of the reasons we're the best-fit school
for so many families.
You may already know that we're one of Washington D.C.'s premier private, international schools and that we offer a British inspired academic heritage to students from more than 65 nationalities in our urban, vertical campus right in Georgetown. Yet that's only part of our story.
Like many schools, we teach globally respected curricula, deliver excellent academic outcomes, hire world-leading teachers, and provide outstanding facilities. That's what schools are supposed to do, after all, and BISW is no exception.
At BISW, we go beyond those benefits to build a school experience unlike any other in Washington. We think beyond traditional education by providing individualized support, collaborations with world-leading institutions (Juilliard, MIT, and UNICEF) and a true focus on international-mindedness.
Our teachers build engaging learning environments so that your child will love coming to school. Our classroom extends beyond our walls with programs like weekly 'Walk in the Woods' in lower primary, day trips to Washington area attractions and museums throughout our year groups, and overnight trips beginning in first grade (Year 2). Our high school juniors (Year 12) spend two weeks in Tanzania each February learning, volunteering, and exchanging ideas with their peers from other Nord Anglia schools.
I know choosing a school is a difficult, personal decision. It needs to be right not just for your child, but for you too. And the best way to understand BISW isn't by reading my letter — it is by visiting our school for yourself. Please schedule a tour to experience our warm and welcoming community first hand, my colleagues and I are excited to meet you!
