How would you rate Bjørn's International School (BIS)?
Both our children have attended Bjørn's International School (B-I-S) since 1st grade, and I have always been happy and impressed with the school. We originally chose B-I-S because the school was recommended to us, and because of the affordable tuition fees. What we also found was a school that has the size (relatively small) and philosophy to truly leverage diversity across cultures, ethnicities and (for the children) age groups. A school that can produce well functioning and truly academically strong young adults. I want to emphasize three specific features, that I think make the difference for B-I-S:
1) the faculty diversity and expertise - very good teachers (some brilliant) that share a common value set towards teaching and are very engaged
2) the size of the school and class/year size - both principal and teachers know your child personally and can take care of his or her needs
3) a principal that lives the vision of the school and always promotes a mindset of diversity and inclusion with students, parents and faculty
Our eldest child is now graduating from B-I-S, and I could not have wished for a better place for him to grow and be formed as an individual. As an alternative to larger and more institutional schools, I give B-I-S my warmest recommendations.
Jeg er overrasket over udtalelsen fra Soraya Duquesne om, at Bjørns Internationale Skole er en racistisk skole. Vores datter gik på skolen i 3 år. På intet tidspunkt i den periode har vi oplevet skolens ledelse, lærer, andre forældre eller børn som racistiske. På det tidspunkt hvor vores datter gik der var der 55 nationaliteter fordelt på 154 elever. Hvilket vil sige, at der altid herskede en international atmosfære, hvilket vores datter elskede. Vi har altid oplevet en professionel ledelse / lærerstab som har villet vores datter det bedste. Da vores datter startede på skolen havde hun en faglig udfordring i dansk. I løbet af ganske kort tid havde lærerne omkring vores datter klarlagt hvor der skulle sættes ind, så vores datter følte sig stærk i dansk og det lykkedes til fulde. Jeg kan anbefale skolen til jer, som ønsker en skolen hvor der er fokus på det fagligt niveau, elevernes trivsel samt et internationalt miljø hvor der er plads til alle nationaliteter.
