Word from a parent: “Since his first day at BIBS, Simon has enjoyed each day at school. To help him familiarize himself in new environment, Simon’s homeroom teacher paired him up with his classmates to explore and learn about the BIBS campus. From then on each day after school, he would bring home various ‘good news’ like: ‘There are so many books I can borrow from the library!,’ ‘I made another friend today!,’ and ‘Lunch was yummy!’…. Simon has made vast improvements in his English skills and teachers often encourage him. Lesson plans are catered according to his level of achievement to allow him to learn to the best of his abilities. In BIBS, not only does Simon gain knowledge, he is happy and able to build confidence.” – Ms. Liu (Chinese), mother of Simon Meng (Grade 4)
