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.
