To join BIBS is to join a community.
BIBS is a different kind of school: we are a Community school. We believe that a good school can and should be a community, that it should create an environment in which students, parents and staff interact in a relaxed and intimate way, where learning can take place anywhere and where the traditional boundaries of the classroom. Taking the expression that it takes a village to raise a child, we see the BIBS Community as raising all our children.
Better than a great school with fantastic opportunities for its students is a great school with a powerful and dynamic community behind it. BIBS’ unique combination of devoted parents and talented staff works together as a community on a daily basis to provide the best educational and social environment for our children. Beyond the natural work of teachers and parents, those who look behind the scenes at BIBS will find students, professionals and friends, all working together to provide the best opportunities.
Home and school partnership
A child’s progress and development is best achieved within a community built upon a solid partnership between home and school. With the support of the BIBS Parent Teacher Association (PTA), BIBS is able to offer opportunities for learning and growth that extend far beyond the bounds of the classroom. Equally important, the BIBS PTA works tirelessly to develop the bonds that hold the BIBS community together. Whether it be through organizing an event, supporting a guest speaker, or giving feedback, the BIBS’ PTA is an important player in our students’ education.
As a big family, the BIBS Community relies heavily on the dedication and partnership of our parents.
An Upper East Side Campus PTA Executive Committee was formed at the end of the 2013-2014 school year and formally commenced in August, 2014. As it was established for an interim period to enable parents to get organized and started, it was also decided at that time that a new election should be held in December this school year or soon thereafter, to serve through the remainder of the 2014-15 school year and for the 2015-16 school year.
All UES parents are eligible to serve on the UES PTA Executive and its committee and all UES parents are eligible to vote in the UES PTA elections. Click to learn more.
