BIS Curriculum Overview

At BIS, we create a nurturing and enriching environment that challenges students to grow in some way, each and every day.  Educating the whole child is a priority, as we aim to provide a unique learning experience for each child focused on building not only academic success, but self-confidence, responsibility, and lifelong learning.

Through a robust English and language arts curriculum, we strive to build fluent, independent readers. We prioritize critical thinking in math by utilizing multiple strategies to solve problems.  At BIS, students focus on the science processes by engaging in STEAM-related activities and technology integration.
