Stanley, Grade 12 Parent (Switzerland)
ISB offers a solid academic program, and teachers are always available for one to one approach to students when needed. It supports students when they have difficulties and challenges them when they need more stimulation.

There are excellent, truly inspirational teachers at ISB. Warm, relaxed, friendly atmosphere at the school with approachable staff. Excellent music and drama with lots of opportunities for students to perform and also partake in the annual school musical. Very welcoming and helpful to new families.
Grade 12 Parent (Ireland)
Great teachers and afterschool programs as well as afterschool care. My kids were always very happy when I came to pick them up. The Seesaw app means I know what is happening at school and as a working mum that is really important to me.
Grade 4 Parent (Australia)
The entire Music Program under the leadership of Mr. Norris has been excellent. He offers lunchtime music group rehearsals, after school music ensembles, Instant Orchestra short term ensembles, special outings to concerts, ongoing solo recital opportunities, AND competitions both on site and off-site. Mr. Norris is to be commended for his energy, enthusiasm, and his ability to engage others in creating such a strong community at ISB.

The use of technology is top level: Interactive Whiteboards, iPads, Seesaw and other IT programs such as Mathletics are great tools. ISB encourages children to discover the joy of learning, reading and researching. Kids develop great presentation skills and independence.

Grade 12 Parent (Switzerland)
Our daughters' transition to the ISB was extremely smooth with the help of the host family who were welcoming and are now our close friends. The girls moved from a different curriculum and the teachers at ISB addressed their gaps whilst continuing to challenge them on a daily basis in the classroom.

The school has a great support system for kids with special needs. It is diverse and challenges the students to be friendly, thoughtful and open minded. The staff are very friendly and truly seem to care for the students on an individual basis.
James, Grade 8 Parent (United States)
Great educational methodology and a really broad scope, making the best of a real International School. We have enjoyed fantastic facilities. The best for me is how they handle new comers not only professionally but with warm care. Kids feel so welcome and are so happy in this school that they would stay here forever. Activities like the top of the top Ski Camp will never be forgotten, or the International Festival, it is really extraordinary. My son has developed tremendously but most importantly, he has been a happy kid everyday going to school.
Maria, Grade 4 Parent (Spain)
The focus on progress, the extent of collaboration among students, the flexibility of the teaching staff to accommodate different learning needs, the effort to develop other non-academic skills in the children (organization, community engagement, etc), genuine concern for the well being of our children, the school-wide efforts to evolve and improve - all of these factors have made for a fantastic educational and personal experience for our children.
Grade 6 Parent (Canada)
The experience of ski camp was just phenomenal - something our child will never forget.
Grade 3 Parent (United States)
The teaching staff are wonderful - very caring/supportive, individualized attention, attuned to developing the whole person, socially and intellectually. The attention they give to each child and activities that they do in the classroom is amazing! The school environment fosters wonderful friendships for the families and provides wonderful opportunities to the parents. It's really added to our experience here as a new expat family.
EC 2 Parent (United States)
The feeling of being "taken care of" when you enter the school as a new family. I will never forget that. The environment, all the cultures, the whole community, the buildings, the Welcome Programme, Parents, teacher, student conferences, the Classroom management (especially at Aesch campus), The level in the Music lessons and PE. That it is easy to "drop by" and have a talk. And always prompt response to a concern or anything else from Director, Principals and teachers. That is Great!
Grade 4 Parent (Denmark)
