Doorway to an Extraordinary Future
As a school, we are committed to the idea that the growth of the mind and the development of intellect, imagination and sensibility are the main responsibilities of teachers in all grades and subject areas. We seek to educate every child from the standpoint of where he/she is, not where age or grade says he/she should be. We aspire to embody the kind of world we want our students to inhabit where:
- learning results from effort and desire
- mistakes are valued as opportunities for growth
- community life is the foundation for mutuality, respect and interdependence
Our specialists work in conjunction with our core-curriculum teachers and parents to provide students with the tools necessary for success. At BFIS, the emphasis is not solely on academics. Our small and tightly knit group is constantly looking at ways in which we can help each other and the community at large, by organizing community events, social service projects and involving stakeholders in decision making processes.
