Parent's Review of Brasilia International School in Brasilia, Brazil

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Brasilia International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Brasilia

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

P-K To 12th

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

By bus

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

It is a small school but with all the things necessary for studies. Different things are offered including sports like soccer, cooking classes, arts etc

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

I had no poroblem with the transition, all the classes are made to help with the transition. Everyday the students are exposed to the possible repatriation

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

The parents are involved 100% with the school, being part of the parent-teacher org in the school or helping in the classroom with the teacher. There is a great communication between teachers and parents.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

I considered the school the best one in Brasilia, the children learn a lot and they are ahead in some school materials like math and science. When we came back to the US my kids (They are in Kinder, second, fifth and 10th grade) have no problem with the new school -- their academic level was just right. We have no problem also with them getting new friends because all the moral and behavior that they learned in BIS. I will recommend the school highly. No complains about it, they help my kids in all aspects no just academically, the respect for others and the love the teachers always have for the students help my kids a lot to adapt no just to Brazil also when we came back to the US.
