In 2018, B.I.S. opened new boarding facilities in order to provide a “home away from home” for international and local students alike. Our co-ed boarding is vibrant, warm and welcoming, and is situated within the school campus. It is fully equipped to ensure a pleasant and safe stay. Boarding at B.I.S. is an all-inclusive experience, including our full school day, boarding supervision after school hours, mentorship, meals and weekend activities.
The boarding team at B.I.S. is deeply committed to facilitating the needs of the students. Their aim is to provide a safe and supportive environment to ensure a healthy family atmosphere at the boarding house where students can live, learn and grow.
The accommodation is superior, with attractive, spacious and comfortable single or double rooms. Students are supervised at all times and their days are well-planned. The common room is designed to provide students with recreational activities such as games, books and a library. The boarding is also equipped with WiFi, which helps students with academic research and keeps them connected with their families. Furthermore, weekend activities and excursions offered exclusively to boarding students seek to create strong and healthy relationships between the students living on campus.
B.I.S. Boarding Benefits
There are several benefits to boarding at B.I.S.. Boarding helps students to experience an immersive international, multi-cultural environment, as well as gain independent life skills that foster a sense of confidence and responsibility. This prepares a student for their future life on a university campus. Through their boarding experience, the students will learn the importance of bonding and develop strong friendships with each other, from proximity and the variety of activities offered on and off campus. They will learn patience and tolerance under the care and mentorship of our boarding team. Finally, since boarding in general highly reduces travel time, this time is utilized more productively in terms of both academic and personal growth. Students explore and enhance their talents here on our campus.
Boarding is available for boys and girls in both MYP and DP programmes (ages 12 to 18). Our campus offers full boarding for international students as well as weekday boarding for local students wanting the opportunity to experience the boarding life. Weekday boarding is from Monday to Friday (with students returning home during the weekends and coming back to campus on Sunday evening or Monday morning).
