If you want your kids to experience personalized and comprehensive approach while learning, look no further! I have to say that BISL is one of the best schools in Ljubljana, with extremely kind and approachable headmaster and teachers who always give feedback for my child. The children are happy and satisfied as they can learn and be productive in an international environment, with great teachers and staff looking out for them.

This school was the worst experience for my child in the year of 2020. The teachers were unqualified to do a competent job. All A level teachers, along with teaching A-levels were also teaching all Highschool years from Y7 to Y11. This school has hired a teacher who turned out to have assaulted his students, publicly humiliated girls in the classroom. Along, this teacher was racist, he referred to black people as “monkeys”. The school failed to fire the teacher for 6 months, and only did so after the school year was over, although they had multiple complaints. The science facilities are awful. Beginning with lack of chemicals for biology and chemistry, continuing with old and unsafe equipment for physics and lack of necessary for practicals cords, resistors, batteries. The teachers had minimum experience, some of the teachers had 0 to 1 years of experience of teaching and were still teaching A levels with no supervision or advice of a higher staff member. Obviously multiple classes were dismissed, or the students were allowed to go to a separate class to study on their own, while the teacher prepares for his next class. Students were found on Highschool territory smoking cigarettes and smoking weed. Some students were not of legal age and would drink during school hours. Again no prosecution occurred, nor were the parents of the children notified. Please, as a parent, I ask you not to send your child here. My child was having panic attacks throughout the whole year in this school. My only regret is that I ever sent my child here.

The school has seen a lot of positive change recently. There is a great team of dedicated teachers and the children enjoy going to school. The leadership team are transparent and approachable, with a strong vision for the right direction to take the school.

Overall

Our three children visited the school for more than 6 years. During the years the school management and behavior changed dramatically. The owner, the Orbital group, put business and money on a much higher scale, changed the school principal and showed from this moment on different behavior. In the last two years we were facing a very high teacher fluctuation. Our younger son had in one school year 5(!) class teachers. Similar situation for other grades. It is my opinion that this fluctuation is caused by very high pressure on teachers and wrong school management. A constructive feedback is not possible. I have the feeling that parents should pay (you know that the school fee is more than 10.000 €/year), otherwise please be quiet. In our case it came to the point that they suspended my children. To make it clear: all payments done, only put the finger to the weak points. To suspend children only not to get negative feedback shows the philosophy behind. Please be careful with this school. I had personally bad experience. One more point: There are quite some outstanding teachers there, with a high committment to teach and interact with children. You only need to be lucky to get your kids to these teachers. Finally we've decided to take our children to another school.
