About British International School of Cracow (BISC)
The British International School of Cracow (BISC) provides a challenging and personalised education for the city’s international community, following the British curriculum delivered in an international context. Combined with extensive sporting, creative and experiential learning opportunities, our students follow a programme which is academically rigorous and yet develops understanding beyond the classroom. Although the principal aim of our school is to provide pupils with a broad and intellectually demanding environment, there are many other areas which are also emphasised.
As an international institution which educates children from different ethnic, national and religious backgrounds, it is The British International School of Cracow's mission to instil a sense of racial and cultural harmony in all classes. From the youngest ages children are taught about the most essential components of human nature: independence without selfishness, inner strength with compassion, and a tolerant, open-minded attitude towards others at all times. Furthermore, due to the small class sizes at The British International School of Cracow, all our staff are able to focus their attention on each individual pupil’s educational, social and personal needs.
This is a wonderful school full of great teachers and students, it has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere and very high standards of teaching. The 5 years that I spent there have to be the best of my life.
I spent 3 years at this school, and though occasionally the organisation cannot be perfect, and the facilities may not be the best. There are many world class teachers who are passionate about their subject and teaching it. As well as this the friendly and family-based atmosphere is undeniable, and BISC has really created a small community amoungst the students, teachers, and parents. I have met some amazing friends here, and I wouldn't have rather have spent it anywhere else.
BISC has welcomed me with arms wide open! I have arrived to the international community with little knowledge of English, the basic level of being able to introduce myself at most) Over the 7 years of mutual cooperation with highly-qualified teachers I was able to face up to the IB Diploma exam and receive a bilingual certificate! Without the professional help and support of the staff, who would not mind sharing their time outside scheduled meeting, this would have been more than impossible! I am thankful for all the extra-curricular classes that are organised for students outside the tight daily programme. Having come from Slovakia, a post-soviet country, I was more than amazed by the experimental-based teaching approach: carrying out experiments in the chemistry lab, going out for humanities fieldtrips or taking the time to visit companies in order to obtain a first-hand contact with business, to only name a few. Being an art major, I very much appreciated the terrific space and possibilities the Art Studio provided giving students opportunities to develop their personal interests and passion. BISC has been a milestone in my education! Forced me to think, discuss and act! Thank you for the lifelong experience!
