Philosophy of Education

BIS is an international Christian school founded upon the belief that God is the source of all truth, and true education is based on His revealed word, the Bible. (John 14:6; John 17:17). We are dedicated to establishing a godly environment where the Bible is actively integrated into all aspects of school life. (I Corinthians 10:31). We believe the purpose of education is to cooperate with parents to develop the knowledge and character that will enable students to fulfill their role within God’s plan (Deuteronomy 6:6-7). We believe that education is characterized by a strong, traditional curriculum coupled with a high expectation for student achievement. (II Timothy 2:15). We believe that respect for authority is an essential ingredient of quality education and character development; therefore our classrooms are controlled with firm, loving discipline by qualified and dedicated Christian teachers. (Hebrews 12:6-11). Our international atmosphere nurtures diversity and respects all peoples with an open door for students and families of all cultures, ethnicities and nationalities. (Revelation 7:9-10)
