Boston School International is an IB World School:

Boston School International is an authorized school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Diploma Programme (DP), and is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improving the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high-quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

What is the international baccalaureate?

The IB program encourages students to think broadly, beyond the boundaries of their communities, and to see themselves as members of a global society. It has gained global recognition and respect.

What is an IB education?

The IB education aims to be informative, not definitive; it invites conversation and regular review. The IB has always championed a stance of critical engagement with challenging ideas, one that values the progressive thinking of the past while remaining open to future innovation. It reflects the IB’s commitment to creating a collaborative, global community united by a mission to make a better world through education. As the IB’s mission in action, the learner profile concisely describes the aspirations of a global community that shares the values underlying the IB’s educational philosophy. The IB learner profile describes the attributes and outcomes of education for international-mindedness.

Early Learning

Boston School International is an IB World School accredited to offer the Primary Years Program (PYP), which fosters independent learning and critical thinking through units of inquiry. We offer an international English-medium education (English-Spanish).

Our methodology develops student skills and strategies, developing critical thinking. We build and strengthen values and a sense of responsibility towards others. We educate leaders with a sense of social responsibility, prepared to move forward in their education to contribute to society as empathetic world citizens.


Our Primary Years Program (PYP)

The primary section of Boston School International offers quality education which promotes in students the development of fundamental academic, technological, and humanistic competencies. Our commitment is the development of an individual who demonstrates social responsibility, the capacity to assume challenges and a leadership endeavor that will generate socio-cultural, ethical, and sustainable progress for the nation.

We will offer an academic proposal that meets the highest standards established by international accreditation institutions. We will continue with the implementation of the Singapore Approach Curriculum for Math, which guarantees consistent and strong emphasis on problem-solving and model drawing, with a focus on an in-depth understanding of the essential math skills.

Aware of the importance of adapting to a constantly changing technological world, we believe in the teaching of technology as a working tool for the learner to acquire knowledge and further develop his or her competencies. For this reason, besides the acquisition of interactive electronic boards for each of the classrooms, as well as their connection to wireless internet, the students will benefit from textbooks and online resources and practices which will further assist them to reinforce concepts discussed in class.

At BSI, our primary school department has one of the finest teaching staff in the nation. Their experience and commitment to the achievement of the highest educational standards together with their love for teaching makes them our most valuable resource.

If you are looking for an international education environment in which your child is going to have the most complete experience, then Boston School International is your best choice.

Welcome to our wolf pack, and remember:

BSI is a place for everyone, NOT to fit in, but to STAND OUT!
