MESSAGE FROM ACADEMIC PRINCIPAL
Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members:
On behalf of our Board of Directors, Senior Executive Team, and BIS faculty and staff, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about our school. We have a lot of exciting initiatives happening this year that we would love to share with you:
Every day, our students show themselves to be both knowledgeable and skills-based in their curricular study. We follow the rigorous Texas Education Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) while using the IB framework for learning important skills to be successful in the 21st century. We are very proud to be the only IB continuum school in Wuxi offering the PYP, MYP, and DP.
We also offer rigorous assessments so that parents and students know exactly what has been learned throughout the school year. These include the Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP), PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10/11, SAT, and DP and AP exams. Again, we are very proud of the fact that we are the only school in Wuxi to offer this level of assessments for students.
We are extremely proud of last year’s graduating class- 100% of whom received the IB diploma. They were accepted to over 50 colleges and universities. This year, we plan to increase our work in this area by offering BridgeU to grade 9-12 students as a way to help students find their college of choice.
Beyond the classroom, our students are actively engaged in extra-curricular activities through our Boston Explorer (BE) program. We currently offer approximately 85 different BE's in a variety of subjects such as academic, sports, and student interests. Additionally, we are rebranding our program using the TRCSS model to align with our IB Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills.
On behalf our BIS, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to visit our webpage, and I would invite you contact our school if you would like more information.
