BIBS: A Community SchoolPart of the Beanstalk Education Group, the BIBS K-12 Division is proud to provide an engaging and balanced international curriculum in a supportive and stimulating environment, through which we encourage our students to develop as thinkers and individuals. Understanding and appreciating that children learn in different ways and excel in different areas, our programs encourage students to draw upon their strengths and to explore new ideas of interest to them as critical thinkers with inquiring minds. Our teachers seek to inspire students to reach their full potential. High expectations and targets for improvement are based upon each student’s individual learning styles. We want our students to be confident, inquiring and tolerant individuals equipped with the knowledge and integrity to be successful in their own right, as well as positive contributors to their local and global communities as 21st century thinkers and globally-minded citizens. 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.
