Welcome to Brasilia International School (BIS). This is a place where you will find community. I understand as both a parent and educator the importance of selecting the best educational opportunities for our children. Thank you for taking the time to consider our school for this important partnership. BIS stands as one of the only international Christian schools within the city of Brasilia.Whether it is interacting with students, teachers, or parents, from around the globe you are among friends here.
At BIS, as part of our overall vision, we are committed to a Christ-centered education with a ministry mindset. We are a school that puts Christ at the center of all academics and activities. We strive to reach our students with the love of Christ and nurture in them Christ-like character and love for God. This Christ-centered focus forms the foundation of our family-friendly environment that respects and encompasses students and families for nations around the world. BIS is a place where students and families are welcomed, known, and valued. No student is merely a name on a class list. Our administration, teachers, and staff strive to educate with a high level of academic integrity and reach each and every child on a daily basis. We intentionally want to know our students, make them feel a part of a family and provide for them a safe place to belong. This commitment transcends to the families of our students and beyond so that our vision of preparing international students to positively impact the world remains while at the same time the glory of God is ultimately realized.
We have developed this user-friendly website to communicate a historical overview, procedures, policies, and overall expectations of BIS. I am hopeful this will help you better understand how our school functions and set the guidelines for daily operations. As you read through this site if you find something which needs clarification, please make an appointment to meet with me or my team of administrators who will be glad to provide clarification and assistance. We are here to partner with our families to help meet the educational needs of each of our students. We are excited as we all embark on this journey together and look forward to sharing experiences as members of the BIS family.
