"'I've visited the school and i am very impressed by the staff and the premises. As expats, alone and far away from home, we are looking for a small welcoming and family oriented school, I believe the B.I.S. has these qualities, my 2 boys will start in September, so we will see how it goes but we are all looking forward to joining this school!"
