ADMISSION PROCESS

Dear parents,

I wish to welcome you to the Boston School International experience. Allow me to express what it means to be part of our school family.

At Boston School International we value every student and each family and we make them feel at home as part of our school community.  Everyone is important in our school. We believe that positive attitudes and contributions affect everyone. Our core values encourage our community to live and interact with one another so each individual is respected and valued. The support and solidarity among our school members are important to us. You can trust that our teachers, coordinators, and supporting staff will nurture your child’s upbringing.

Our goal is to cultivate habits and abilities within our students that focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both at school and beyond. Ultimately our students will stand out as leaders within a competitive, 21 st century world in which being a lifelong learner will be essential for success. We do this by empowering our students to be leaders within the Leader In Me program framework, which teaches them Stephen Covey`s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Our PYP and DP curriculum* teaches our students to think critically, communicate effectively, work collaboratively, problem solve and become creative innovators. Our proactive and supportive school climate and culture promotes the greatness in all children.

I will walk you throughout all the admission process making sure that you feel supported. We would like to answer all your inquiries, so any question is welcomed. I invite you to visit our campus and to see the dynamic learning as daily experienced by our students.  You may email me at admissions@bostonschool.edu.pa and I will gladly assist you.
