BRIS is an INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (ibo.org) accredited school. The students test several grades above level. The principal and teachers have an open door policy and respond quickly to concerns. Our 8th grade and 5th grade children are above grade level in math and science, in addition to fluency in English, French, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese. There is homework and there are fundraising obligations. All are manageable. Your children will receive an education that would be at least twice as expensive in a large city. Take a tour to visit new multi educational facility scheduled to open Spring 2018.

There are SO many great things to say about the High School that it's hard to know where to start. Our DS is GT so he needs advanced academics and enrichment in order to keep him engaged. He is particularly interested in STEM and is able to take high level courses in this area. In addition to the academics he is able to have enrichment classes such as Art and Technology to help him be a more rounded student. The language component is perhaps one of our favorite aspects. We were worried that the transfer as an 8th grader with no language background would be impossible. It's been challenging, but also AMAZING! Imagine graduating high school with 4-6 years of intensive language study in 2 or 3 languages? If you are thinking about making a change for middle school or early high school, DO IT! If you are coming from even a top ranked public school and even a GT kid, expect LOTS of extra work that first year to catch up to their standards - but it's WORTH IT!
