Our mission is to develop the intellect and character of each learner by providing the opportunity for an outstanding bilingual education with a global perspective.
BES provides a challenging dual language program that engages learners through inquiry and collaboration. We encourage our students to think critically, to take risks and to be creative. We challenge learners to strive for personal excellence, and we value the intellectual, social, artistic and physical development of each student, which have a significant impact on his/her academic achievements and personal growth. We aim to provide a stimulating environment that fosters a life-long love of learning.
We assist students in developing strength of character by learning to make appropriate choices and by taking responsibility for their actions. We expect BES students to embody the attributes of the learner profile, to take thoughtful and appropriate action, and to develop their unique potential. We seek to inspire the compassion and international mindedness necessary for learners to contribute responsibly to the global community.
Respect for individual differences and appreciation of cultural diversity are central values of BES. We celebrate the open exchange of ideas between our learners and the community and strive to create a climate of inclusiveness. We encourage all members of our learning community to contribute actively to the energy and enthusiasm for learning that characterizes the BES experience. BES is committed to creating a caring and supporting learning environment by establishing a partnership of collaboration among children, teachers, staff, parents and members of the community.
At BES the student is at the centre of our educational project: teachers recognise and evaluate each individual with the aim of developing a constructive relationship that stimulates not only personal awareness but academic growth.
We stimulate our students to aim for excellence enhancing their intellectual, social, artistic and physical development. We promote the passion of learning that will accompany them for their lives, becoming ‘life-long learners’. We encourage them to be critical thinkers, risk takers and creative. We foster their caring spirit and international thinking.
We request maximum dedication so that each student reaches their personal excellence taking great care to nurture their intellectual, social, artistic and physical education. We follow an educational philosophy that facilitates our students to work in a team, making them proud of building a strong bond between their peers.
Students are constantly involved in research which is mainly conducted in groups. We offer support so that the pupils grow with self-confidence, that they be caring towards others and above all flexible so that they may easily adapt to the constantly changing world.
"To cope with the demands of the 21st century, students need to know more than core subjects. They need to know how to use their knowledge and skills – by thinking critically, applying knowledge to new situations, analyzing information, comprehending new ideas, communicating, collaborating, solving problems, and making decisions."
