Website – http://www.bisschool.com
Review: Bombay International School was established in 1962 by a group of parents who believed that education is a true learning process and not a structured way of imparting information. The key to learning was and is a small class size and a very high teacher – student ratio of 1 teacher to 15 students.
There are no exams in Junior School (Standards I – IV). The child’s progress is recorded through worksheets and projects. In the middle school (Standards V – VII), the children are expected to work consistently throughout the year. There are review tests at regular intervals which add up to a letter grade. These classes have only one Annual Examination. Standards VIII and IX follow the Cambridge IGCSE Curriculum, which is challenging and application oriented. There is great joy in learning through experiential methods. Std. X will appear for the ICSE Exam.
